Manchester City Need Some Luck In Champions League Believes Bernardo Silva

Here, Press Association Sport looks at some talking points ahead of the Group F clash.

The goalkeeper, who trained with his team-mates on Monday after suffering facial injuries in a nasty clash with Liverpool's Sadio Mane, was sporting a protective helmet as City were put through their paces on Tuesday morning. The 24-year-old does has been impressive but playing him again so soon could be risky. The Brazil U23 global will face a late fitness test after being stretchered off during the Blues' 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool. Having lost 3-2 in Madrid against Real, City had been extremely lucky to draw at home to a rampant Borussia Dortmund - they would go on to contest the Wembley final with Bayern that season - and were then faced with two matches back-to-back against the Dutch champions, which would decide whether they had a chance of progressing or not. Guardiola has since addressed some areas of weakness, notably in goal and both full-back positions. Even with the absences, Pep has a strong squad to choose from and we should see a very good team on Wednesday night.

The odds overwhelmingly favour a City win, although the last time they visited Dutch soil they lost 3-1 to Ajax in the group stage in 2012.

The flight that raced Hurricane Irma and won
Flight 431 arrived a minute after noon to nine miles of visibility and light rain, the airline said. The flight quickly unloaded passengers and took on a new planeful of passengers to take to NY .

Meanwhile, Guardiola will be desperate for his side to get off to the ideal start in Group F on Wednesday before they face Shakhtar Donetsk at home on Tuesday, September 26. They have opened their campaign with four successive wins and again top the Eredivisie.

Manchester City's Spanish manager Pep Guardiola awaits kickoff in the English Premier League football match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester City at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, southern England on August 12, 2017.
