Pep rings the changes: With a Premier League game against Liverpool to come on Sunday afternoon, Manchester City’s manager has made five changes from the side that laboured to victory against Southampton last Saturday.
Benjamin Mendy, João Cancelo and Nicolas Otamendi come into defence, while Riyad Mahrez is in for the injured David Silva. Bernardo Silva is expected to fill in for his namesake, with Mahrez lining up on the left of a front three. Sergio Aguero makes way for Gabriel Jesus, who will play as the central striker.
Having thrashed Atalanta at the Etihad Stadium in the last round of group games, Manchester City will be hoping to register another win and book their place in the knockout stages with two matches to spare. While Atalanta have yet to get off the mark in the group, having conceded 11 goals in their three defeats so far, they can still technically qualify.
Fifth in the Serie A table, eight points off leaders Juventus, Atalanta are having a decent season on the domestic front, but come into tonight’s match with just one win from their past five games. Kick-off at the San Siro is 8pm (GMT), but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.
