In today’s UEFA Champions League, Manchester City meets AS Monaco in the round of 16. The match will kick-start at 7:45 PM at Etihad Stadium. AS Monaco is in a good form to defeat any team as they have recently won against PSG. They already defeated Man City twice in the Premier League. Earlier in the group stage, they won against Tottenham Hotspur by 2-1. In 2014-15 Champions League, Monaco met Arsenal in the last 16 and won 3-1 at first leg. So it is going to be an interesting clash today between AS Monaco and Manchester City.
Vincent Kompany, Man City captain will not play in today’s game due to his leg injury which didn’t allow him to play in FA Cup as well. Mid Gundogan and striker Gabriel Jesus are also not available due to their long-term injuries. Man City has never lost a match against French team in Champions League. All their previous 3 meets were against PSG and they won all. Another interesting stat to note down is, AS Monaco has lost five times out of their seven played games in Champions League knock-out. So this is going to be Manchester City day today.
