Sevilla unfortunately was defeated two weeks ago in Manchester and now in front of home stands at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium will try to get a revenge against the Premier league leading side, Man City, which again is missing a lot of important players.
The Serie A last season winner, Juventus, sit on the top place with 7 points, two more than the Citizens, while Sevilla, a two time in a row Europa league winner (2014 & 2015) are on the third having three points less than the English side, meaning that with a win over injury troubled Man City, Sevilla could get seriously involve in taking one of the two places which lead into the next stage. However a defeat could make the same thing more difficult.

Sevilla – Manchester City Live Streams
Unai Emery’s side is aware that to achieve a win over Citizens won’t be an easy task, but the good news is that Sevilla plays a much better at home than away. Emery’s men currently sit on the 11th place of the Spanish La Liga, most thankfully to the recent series of three home wins and one visiting a draw, because in the opening five rounds Sevilla had won only two points.
But, this brilliant series of Sevilla last weekend ended on an away game at Villarreal with a 2-1 defeat, with which Emery’s men once again have proved their bad away form.
– I can not give a definite answer to this question, although the fact is that at the Sanchez Pizjuan we look better. We’ve recently celebrated over Barcelona, and it is precisely this meeting which should be a guideline for the clash with Man City, which is a leader in England.
The only win in Champions league group stage, Sevilla entered over the German side, Borussia Mönchengladbach, celebrating a 3-0 win, while against Juve and Man City despite playing good, the Spanish side have ended matches empty handed.
Let’s say that for this meeting because of injury will miss the goalkeeper Beto, defenders Carrico and Pareja, midfielder Kakuta, while Banega is doubtful.
Sevilla probable lineup: Rico, Coke, Rami, Kolodziejczak, Tremoulinas, N’Zonzi, Krychowiak, Banega, Iborra, Vitolo, Llorente
Unlike Sevilla, guests from Manchester this meeting of the Champions league group stage fourth round await in a great atmosphere, considering that in the last seven Citizens have won six of them, dropping only two points, against city rivals Man United.
Man City’s good run actually started with a European victory away at Borussia Mönchengladbach, while in the third round of the Champions League at their Etihad Stadium, with a lot of luck and de Bruyne’s injury time winner, Pellegrini’s side have won perhaps the key points to qualify for the knockout phase.
However, now they have to stay at least undefeated at the Sanchez Pizjuan and herefore the coach Pellegrini most likely will set a more cautious tactics, looking for his chances from extremely dangerous counterattacks. If you plan to attend the game, some good deals you can find on a new responsive website LiveFootballTicket site.
Talking for the Man City Official site, the boss, Manuel Pellegrini announced winning plans:
“I think it’s very important for the team to try to win because, depending on what happens in other game, we could be in the next stage.”
“If we have a good result tomorrow, we must then try to win the group in our remaining two games.”
As for situation with the squad due to injury for the first team do not compete full-back Clichy, midfielders Delph, Silva, Nasri and striker Aguero, Zabaleta is doubtful.
Man City probable lineup: Hart – Sagna, Kompany, Otamendi, Kolarov – Toure, Fernandinho – Navas, De Bruyne, Sterling – Bony
