Man City v Lyon team news

Man City: Sergio Aguero has not made the trip to Lisbon due to a knee injury but Eric Garcia is in the squad.

Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus are expected to start in the forward three.

Lyon: Manager Rudi Garcia has no fresh absentees here, although defender Jason Denayer and forward Max Cornet are doubts.

Expect Memphis Depay to be the fulcrum of the French side’s attack.

Our prediction: Man City v Lyon

Lyon did enough to see off Juventus in their last outing and will have to produce a similarly dogged display to overcome City here.

Pep Guardiola’s men are firm favourites to win on Saturday and can be expected to score either side of the break.

How Lyon match up against City’s quality attacking arsenal remains to be seen but the Premier League side should have enough firepower to emerge victorious.

Our prediction: Man City 2-0 Lyon
