Manuel Pellegrini has made four changes from the side which were beaten 2-0 by Stoke City.

Eliaquim Mangala, Gael Clichy, Fabian Delph and Yaya Toure have all come in to take their place in Pellegrini’s starting line-up.

As mentioned before, Manchester City must win and Juventus slip up against Sevilla if they are to claim top spot in Group D. 

City have been knocked out by Barcelona during the last two seasons so they will be hoping to finish first in order to avoid the Spanish giants.  

Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez all start for Real Madrid despite their last 16 qualification as group leaders.

The teams are in ahead of tonight’s match at the Etihad Stadium: Hart, Clichy, Otamendi, Mangala, Kolarov, Toure, Fernandinho, Delph, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling

I will be focusing on Manchester City’s crucial match against Borussia Monchengladbach, while my colleague Dan Ripley will be providing live commentary on Manchester United’s match in Germany against Wolfsburg. 

City have already qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League but are hoping to secure top spot, while United may have to win in Germany in order to progress to the next round.

Manchester City and Juventus are battling it out to finish in top spot as they take on Borussia Monchengladbach and Sevilla respectively during their final Group D fixtures.

Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping his side can leapfrog Juventus by topping the group and therefore landing a better tie during the last 16 stage of the Champions League. 

Real Madrid, who host Malmo, and Paris Saint-Germain, who take on Shakhtar, have already secured a place in the next round, with the Spanish giants also having claimed top spot. 

Galatasaray host Astana  and Benfica take on Atletico Madrid in Group C. The two Iberian sides are also already through.
