Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has announced the starting lineup for their upcoming match against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League group stage. The Norwegian striker Erling Haaland leads the attack for Manchester City, supported by wingers Phil Foden and Jack Grealish.
Guardiola opted to rest Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson and started German goalkeeper Stefan Ortega in his place. Along with Ederson, Belgian winger Jeremy Doku and Argentine forward Julian Alvarez are also given a break.
This game presents an opportunity for Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo, who is in the starting lineup, to face his former teammates from Leipzig, having left the German team in the last summer transfer window.
On the other side, Dutch midfielder Xavi Simmons is a notable presence in RB Leipzig's lineup, along with Swedish winger Emil Forsberg. However, the team will miss star player Dani Olmo due to injury.
Here are the lineups for both teams:
Manchester City:Ortega, Walker, Aké, Dias, Gvardiol, Rodri, Silva, Luis, Foden, Grealish, Haaland.
RB Leipzig: Plasvic, Klostermann, Simakan, Lukić, Raum, Haidara, Szoboszlai, Simons, Forsberg, Olmo, Ibouda.
