Pep Guardiola and his team are already one step into the Champions League quarter-finals following their impressive 5-0 win over Sporting Lisbon in the first leg on the road. This means the manager could rest most of his players to pave the way for players from the reserves.
Players like Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez performed well against Manchester United and could be reserved for the tie even though Pep Guardiola isn’t willing to take chances.
Visitors Sporting CP knows they’ll have to overturn five goals and possibly a sixth to earn a place in the next round.
