The Champions League game is being played again. The knockout stage of the Champions League is being played on Wednesday (February 18). The teams will face each other in the home and away matches in the 2 leg knockout stage. Two matches will be played on the field on the first day. Sporting CP will host Man City in Lisbon when the PSG fight with Real Madrid. The two matches will start at 2 pm.
Although Man City have established themselves in England, they are not yet on the list of elites in European football. Petro exchanged dollars for Kholnolch but failed to make it to the Champions League stage. The biggest success is the loss to Chelsea in the final last season. What the team is not doing for a Champions League title. The team has changed a lot of money. Coach after coach has changed. Pep Guardiola, the sharp-witted coach who has brought Barcelona to the Champions League twice, is getting the latest hand. Although Guardiola came to power in the Premier League, the Champions League is still elusive.
This time the citizens are in great form. If nothing happens, it is safe to say that the Premier League is going to the Etihad Stadium. Their performance in the Champions League is also quite impressive. Man City have won four of the eight matches in the group stage. They have scored a total of 18 goals in the matches. In other words, the citizens have scored 3 goals per match. On the other hand, he has digested 10 goals. Riyad Mahrez has scored maximum 5 goals for the team. Gabriel Jesus got 3 goals. So it can be said that City’s attack is part of the goal.
City is not bad in defense. There is no more expensive defense in Europe than City. Ruben Dias, John Stones, Joao Cancello and Walker will be shortlisted for the World Cup in their respective positions.
Man City’s biggest advantage in Lisbon is that many of the team’s key stars have played in the Premier League at one time. Sporting CP has a connection with all of the Portuguese stars in the team. Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancello and Ederson all played at one time in Sporting CP’s biggest rivals Benfica. Needless to say, the former Portuguese Eagles star is getting a different thrill from getting CP.
Sporting CP, on the other hand, got a place in the knockout stage by dismissing a team like Dortmund. They have nothing to lose. On the contrary, it would be a great achievement to be able to say goodbye to Man City by causing an accident. Their rate was three as against 3 wins in the group stage. The main weapons of the team are two young men; Pedro Gonzalez and Paulinho. Both of them have scored 4 and 3 goals respectively. Several big clubs are keeping an eye on Pedro Gonzalez. This includes Mancity, today’s opponent.
Manchester City will face PSG vs Real Madrid in the most desired match of the day apart from the sporting match. The match will start at Park de Prince at 2 pm Bangladesh time.
