Manchester City v Juventus - Competition: Champions League
Match date: Tuesday, 15 September 2015, 7:45 PM.  
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, United Kingdom

Man City head into Tuesday's game buoyed by their imperious early-season form. They have recorded five straight English Premier League wins, a sequence made even more impressive by the fact that they are yet to concede a goal. The Citizens enter this match on the back of a tough 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, courtesy of a goal scored by the Nigerian youngster Iheanacho.
Sergio Aguero was forced off during City's last-gasp victory at Crystal Palace and has been ruled out. Anyway, Pellegrini will have both Raheem Sterling and David Silva available. Wilfried Bony is expected to deputise for the injured Aguero given that Iheanacho is ineligible. Pablo Zabaleta and Fabian Delph, meanwhile, will definitely be unavailable for the hosts.
Juventus are struggling in the Italian Serie A having earned just a single point from the first three fixtures. The Bianconeri lost They their opening two matches against Udinese and Roma and only a Paulo Dybala's late penalty eventually salvaged them a point at home against Chievo last Saturday.
Midfielder Claudio Marchisio has been ruled out of action for a month. Sami Khedira remains sidelined, so Juventus' midfield is in emergency. New signing Hernanes could start as playmaker in a 3-5-2 system with Dybala and Manzukic paired up front. After an impressive performance against Chievo, Juan Cuadrado should be in the starting XI.
The Citizens team have a poor record in UCL and they have only won two of their last 10 games in this competition (D2 L6) and just three of their 11 home Champions League games to date. City are taking part in their 5th Champions League campaign but they have never made it past the last 16.

Probable lineups:
Manchester City: Hart – Sagna, Kompany, Mangala, Kolarov – Fernandinho, Yaya Toure – de Bruyne, Silva, Sterling – Bony.
Juventus: Buffon – Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini – Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Sturaro, Hernanes, Evra – Morata, Mandzukic.
