They warmed up for this with a straightforward 2-0 away win against Thun and will be hoping to take something into the second leg. Pep Guardiola’s side were in a destructive mood as they dismantled Leicester City on Saturday. Sergio Aguero stole the show with four goals and he is likely to be leading the line once again here.

Man United lost 1-0 here during the group stage of the competition and this may not be as easy as the bookies might imagine.
