An important UEFA Champions League Group E match will take place at City of Manchester Stadium this Tuesday. Manchester City will try their first win in the competition against a confident Roma.
The Citizens opened the Champions League with an unfortunate 1-0 loss at Bayern in Munich. As their direct opponents had a successful first round, losing another match would considerably decrease their odds of qualifying for the playoffs. Manuel Pellegrini has doubts about the conditions of several players: Fernando, Nasri, David Silva, Aguero, and Jovetic. On the other hand, Zabaleta is back after one-game suspension, as well as Pellegrini himself.
Roma had a great start in the championship with a comprehensive 5-1 win over CSKA Moscow. Having world-class opponents in their groups, such as Manchester City and Bayern, it is very important. However, Astori, Strootman and De Rossi are injured and will not be ready on time for the match. But Totti and Gervinho are confirmed.
The Giallorossi have constantly failed to win when they play in England. Actually, they did it just once (1-0 at Liverpool – 2000/2001 UEFA Cup). Will they succeed this time?
