Former Man City midfielder Fernando is doubtful with a virus, so Ivan Rakitic and Joan Jordan could continue in the middle of the pitch, with Thomas Delaney another option who Sampaoli could call upon. Another former City player in Jesus Navas will be hoping to force his way into the first XI at right-back ahead of Gonzalo Montiel, while goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic could keep his place between the sticks ahead of Yassine Bounou.
Man City vs Sevilla LIVE: Hosts without Haaland for final UCL group gameUCL 1st November 2022, 6:51 pm Updated: 1st November 2022, Manchester City have dominated Group G and have qualified as group winners as they prepare to welcome Sevilla to Etihad for the final game. However, Pep Guardiola’s side will have to do without Erling Haaland as the Norwegian continues his recovery from a foot problem. Getty Haaland was withdrawn at half time against Borussia Dortmund and hasn’t played since City probably don’t need him anyway, as they are already through, but he would have wanted to get more goals.
Guardiola is expected to freshen up his starting lineup with his side already through to the knockout rounds, and he may decide to give run-outs to academy graduates Rico Lewis and Josh Wilson-Esbrand either off the bench or from the start. Instead, we can expect a lot of rotation from the Citizens as they can use this match as an opportunity to test some of their younger players. Meanwhile, Sevilla have confirmed third place, so they might also rotate after a pretty disastrous Champions League campaign in which they have only won one match. But the La Liga side are masters of the Europa League and should have a lot more joy in 2023 when UEFA’s competitions start up again.
City returned to winning ways in the Premier League, without the presence of injured goal machine Erling Braut Haaland, when they secured a slender 1-0 away victory against Leicester City on Saturday, courtesy of a stunning Kevin De Bruyne free kick early in the second half. Although City's upcoming clash against Sevilla is essentially a dead rubber, Guardiola and co will be keen to come away with a positive result and build momentum ahead of three more important domestic fixtures before the World Cup break.
Match preview © Reuters Manchester City are one of only five teams in this season's Champions League who are yet to lose in the group stage, with victories in their first three matches followed by successive goalless draws against Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund. Indeed, a 0-0 stalemate away against Dortmund last week – which saw Riyad Mahrez miss another penalty kick – was enough to secure top spot in Group G for Pep Guardiola's side as well as help their German counterparts qualify as runners-up, and both sides will discover their fate in the last 16 when the draw is made on November 7.
