Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola would have been delighted with Phil Foden’s late winner against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening but the away goal means the Champions League tie is on a knife-edge going into the second leg.
We could, therefore, see a lot of rotation when the Citizens take on Leeds in the lunchtime kickoff tomorrow. Marcelo Bielsa’s team are a huge threat going forward and they were a handful in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Guardiola has no players on the treatment table which means he has a lot of leeway when it comes to changing his starting lineup for the game at the Etihad.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Leeds:
Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Torres, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling
Leeds have just one injury heading into tomorrow’s game. Adam Forshaw is still out with a hip problem. Jack Harrison will also be ineligible to play against his parent club.
Leeds’ Predicted XI:
Meslier, Ayling, Llorente, Cooper, Alioski, Klich, Phillips, Roberts, Raphinha, Bamford, Costa
The bookies have City as the heavy favourites with Betfair pricing them at 3/10 for the win. A draw is 5/1 with Betfred while a victory for Leeds is 19/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 4-2 to City
