Competition: UEFA Champions League

Manchester United will try to defeat Napoli, especially as they will play at their Etihad stadium. Manchester City has a nine-game winning streak out of which two matches were won in the UEFA Champions League, with Feyenoord away and Shakhtar at home, one in the League Cup and 06 in the English Premier League, which in fact propelled the team at the leading place in table.
In the previous round, Manchester City had the same number as the city rival Manchester United, but, after home victory of even 7-2 over Stoke and United’s draw with Liverpool away, the point difference between these two teams is 02 points, while third-placed Tottenham already lags for five points. It is supposed that coach, Guardiola, will not make drastic changes in the team for this match with Napoli, especially as out of action are only from before: injured defenders Kompany and Mendy.
Napoli,on the other side, is leader in the Italian Serie A before this UEFA Champions League match, although unlike Manchester City, they haven’t lost a single point by now. In the first 08 rounds of the Italian Serie A, coach Sarri players, won the same number of times, so now Napoli has two points more than Inter Milan, which will meet in next round and even five more than third-placed Juventus and fourth-positioned Lazio.
Taking into account that Napoli won a very valuable away victory over Roma 1-0, which means that the atmosphere in the locker room before Manchester trip is at the highest possible level. Ahead of them is a very tough match, given that Manchester City is in excellent shape at the moment. In addition to that, after defeat by Shakhtar, Napoli currently has 03 points fewer. Out of action for this game are only injured forward Milik and suspended stopper Koulibaly.

Probable lineups for the match:
Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph – de Bruyne, Fernandinho, D. Silva – Sterling, Jesus, Sane
Napoli: Reina – Hysaj, Albiol, Chiriches, Ghoulam – Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik – Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
