The Citizens host the German side in the second leg of the round of 16 in UEFA Champions League

Date: 13/03/2018, Wednesday
Kick off:- 1:30 am IST
Venue: Etihad 
Aggregate: Manchester City (3): (2) Schalke


Manchester City welcome Schalke for the return leg of their Champions League round of 16 encounter. The first leg saw plenty of goals between both sides with five goals being scored.

City were able to take the lead early through Aguero in the 18th minute. Schalke then replied with two goals of their own, both converted from the spot by Nabil Bentaleb. A world-class free kick from former Schalke player Leroy Sane levelled the scores for City and Raheem Sterling scored in the dying minutes of the game as he to win the game City.

Going into the home fixture, City have a crucial away goal lead over Schalke. The second leg, however, is still up for grabs as Schalke have caused major upsets in the past.


TEAM NEWS:

Manchester City:

City will be without Otamendi as he picked up two yellows in the first leg. De Bruyne (Hamstring), Mendy (Knee), Bravo (Achilles), Kompany (Unspecified), Fernandinho (Suspended), Otamendi (Suspended) are all unavailable for the match while Stones remains doubtful. Should Manchester City progress to the quarter-finals, Aguero will miss out on the first leg if he picks up a yellow card tomorrow.


Schalke 04:

Schalke will be without Caligiuri (Ankle Ligament), Harit (Disciplinary), Mascarell (Groin), Schopf (Knee), Uth (Disciplinary).
