UEFA have confirmed that Manchester City will take place against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, with the club having the right police to host the match.
Manchester City are aiming for two wins out of two in the Champions League but will face a Dortmund side that comfortably won their first game 3-0 against Kobenhavn.
We at City Transfer Room have all the team news you need.
For Manchester City, the absentee list has grown. Kyle Walker and John Stones are likely to still miss after missing the game against Sevilla, although John Stones’ injury will recover sooner than Kyle Walker’s.
Aymeric Laporte is still out but he is nearing his return as Pep Guardiola said early October could be the date we see him again.
Kalvin Phillips returned against Sevilla and Jack Grealish also played his part, greatly bolstering City.

Mahmoud Dahoud is out for Dortmund until November with a shoulder injury. Mateu Morey is sidelined for several months after surgery for a torn meniscus. Elsewhere, Karim Adeyemi, Jamie Bynoe-Gitten’s doubt, and Donyell Malen’s doubt.
Both teams won their opening matches and the result of this match will play a big role in determining the group winners. Manchester City have more time to prepare and rest as the Premier League is cancelled, which could be an advantage.
