Manchester City will hope to quickly brush off their shock defeat by Crystal Palace when they host Club Brugge in the Champions League tonight.

While City’s European campaign had suffered a blow heading into the last round of fixtures between these two sides after a loss to Paris Saint-Germain, Pep Guardiola’s team battered their Belgian opposition with a 5-1 rout away from home last month.

So then, it’s hard to imagine City being given too much trouble tonight but the Palace result, like the draw with Southampton and the loss at Tottenham earlier this season, does suggest that all may not be clicking at the Etihad Stadium.

Brugge, meanwhile, had given a good account of themselves on the continental stage prior to their last game against City and were starting to look like dark horses in a group also containing RB Leipzig, so although City will be expected to win, will perhaps feel they can cause problems.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Manchester City vs Club Brugge is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off tonight - Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

The Etihad Stadium in Manchester will play host to the fixture.

Man City vs Club Brugge team news

Needing to win and keep Brugge off their tails in pursuit of PSG, Guardiola will surely opt to field a strong line-up even despite their recent commitments in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup and with a Manchester derby to come at the weekend.

Ferran Torres remains the only real injury concern, although Kevin De Bruyne’s recent form is somewhat of a worry. With that in mind, perhaps Cole Palmer - who impressed against West Ham - could come into the side to freshen things up.

Brugge, meanwhile, will be without Eder Balanta through Champions League suspension but Bas Dost scored twice during their weekend win over St. Truiden, potentially playing his way into contention.

Man City vs Club Brugge prediction

City, the embodiment of consistency when at their best under Guardiola, may not be at their rampant best all the time these days but the gulf in quality between the two clubs in the first leg was painfully obvious.

It may be tighter and Brugge can certainly cause problems, but it’s hard to look past a City win.

Man City to win 2-0.
