Manchester City play host to Crvena Zvezda at their Etihad Stadium in a David-vs-Goliath Champions League opener.

The Citizens want to start their title defence in style and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Serbian champions.

As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Norway superstar Erling Haaland, who got his name on the scoresheet in a come-from-behind 3-1 win over West Ham United at the weekend.

Kevin De Bruyne remains in the recovery room, while all Jack Grealish, Mateo Kovacic, and John Stones are major doubts.

The Red and Whites, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Cukaricki in the Serbian top flight and it seems as if summer signings have yet to adapt to the new surroundings.

Anyhow, Barak Bakhar’s troops will have a mountain to climb against the Champions League trophy hopefuls.

All Milos Degenek, Stefan Mitrovic, Osman Bukari, and Jean-Philippe Krasso should be recalled to the starting XI after they were rested in the last league match.

This match will be played on 19/09/2023 at 20:00

Prediction: 5-1

Recommended Pick: Over 2.5 Goals.
