Champions League Group Stage: Sevilla vs Manchester City

The Blues have a chance to seal their ticket to the next round but need a win tonight in Southern Spain, live at 20:45 GMT.

With three games left in the Champions League Group Stage, Man. City have a chance to secure their berth in the knockout stage with a win tonight over Sevilla. The Blues also need Juventus to beat Borussia Monchengladbach, which shouldn't be too hard for the group leaders. With the struggles that City had early on, securing their position in the next round would be a breath of fresh air tonight.

Key Match Points

City fans are still undecided about Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony, but Manuel Pellegrini still has faith that he can get the job done. Bony needs a bit more time to find his comfort zone and prove that he is the man for the job. Kelechi Iheanacho is ineligible for play tonight, so the keys to the striker position is on Bony.

Fans can expect a big game from Brazilian Fernando, one of the understated successes of this season and a big reason for the Blues' dominance in the Premier League so far.  

Jesus Navas will be making his first return to Sevilla since accepting £14.9m in 2013 to make the move to City, but he is keen to make a good impression on his home town fans. Navas scored 34 goals for Sevilla and helped them win two Spanish Cups and two UEFA Cups, so his welcome home should be positive.

For Sevilla to beat Manchester City tonight, they will need all hands on deck, and even then they have a whopping task ahead of them. With only 3 points in Group D, Sevilla would need to win all three remaining games to even have a shot at the next round.
