Welcome to the live blog for Manchester City vs Lyon.
The two sides meet in Lisbon for the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League, the winner of tonight’s game will go on to face Bayern Munich in the semi-finals after they thrashed Barcelona 8-2 last night.
Pep knows a win tonight will set up a mouth-watering game against his former club, Bayern Munich.
Standing in City’s way is Lyon, the French side endured a torrid season finishing seventh in the league behind the likes of Reims in sixth, and Champions League qualifiers Rennes.
However, the French giants did manage to beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus to reach this point of the competition and should not be written off too soon.
The French side faced Man City twice in last season’s Champions League group stages and didn’t fall to a defeat drawing 2-2 at home and defeating City 2-1 away at the Etihad.
Boss Pep Guardiola confirmed that Sergio Aguero is still not fit to return to action, the striker had knee surgery in Barcelona with Pep confirming he is still in Spain.
Pep does however have a boost in the full back spot with Benjamin Mendy returning from suspension allowing him to select a naturally left footed player at left back and not Cancelo who is naturally a right footed, right sided player.
Ex Man United striker Memphis Depay is set to lead the line for Lyon, the striker is in fine form scoring in six successive Champions League games.
Lyon are however set to have two absentees in Jason Denayer and Maxwel Cornet.
