Manchester City begin their Champions League defence at the Etihad as they host Serbian side Red Star Belgrade in their Group G opener on Tuesday.


The Cityzens ended their long wait for European success last season by beating Inter Milan in the final in May to clinch a historic treble and are among the favourites to win this year's competition as well.

They look odds on to top the group with ease, having been drawn alongside the Serbian SuperLiga champions, Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, and 2022/23 Swiss Super League winners Young Boys.

Red Star have made a strong start to the Serbian domestic season, scoring plenty of goals thanks in no small part to summer signing Jean-Philippe Krasso, but there can be no doubt that their trip to the North West of England will be their toughest test yet.

As for Man City, Pep Guardiola will be keen for his side to lay a marker down and show that despite last season's Champions League success, they're still as hungry as ever. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man City v Red Star on TV and online.
