Pep Guardiola to make six changes, 20-year-old ace to start: Man City predicted line-up vs Red Star Belgrade.



Six substitutions are scheduled by Pep Guardiola, while the 20-year-old captain will start: Predicted Man City lineup against Red Star BelgradeGiven that Manchester City have already secured first place in their Champions League division prior to their match against Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday, it is anticipated that Pep Guardiola will utilize a rotating roster.

We believe the Spaniard could make six substitutions from the starting lineup that defeated Luton Town 2-1 on Sunday.Predicted Manchester City roster against Red Star Belgrade

Given the claim that Ederson Moraes was absent from Tuesday’s training session due to illness, Stefan Ortega is expected to start in goal for Red Star Belgrade, as per our lineup prediction.


The Brazilian is not listed on the Sky Blues’ traveling squad for the match (as reported by the club’s official website), which virtually guarantees Ortega a starting position.


Rico Lewis could make an appearance at right back in place of Kyle Walker, who is currently on a brief rest this season.


John Stones could potentially replace Ruben Dias as the right-sided center-back for his team, particularly following his late cameo appearance against Luton Town.Manuel Akanji is expected to replace injury-prone Nathan Ake at the center of defense, as Pep Guardiola stated in late November that the latter “cannot play every three days.” This prediction pertains to Manchester City’s lineup against Red Star Belgrade.


After performing admirably against Luton Town at left back, Josko Gvardiol may be able to maintain his spot in the starting lineup.


In contrast, Rodri may be granted a precautionary vacation as a result of his widely debated significance to the Sky Blues, while Mateo Kovacic retreats deeper to function as a defensive midfielder.


Due to the benching of the Spanish international, Matheus Nunes, who entered the game as a late substitute in his previous two appearances, may wind up starting the match.The £53 million (Sky Sports) acquisition has yet to have a sensational debut at the Etihad Stadium due to injury and rotation, but he still has an opportunity to impress on Wednesday.In the same way that Pep Guardiola may elect to avoid risking a potential injury with Bernardo Silva, he may do the same with Rodri. Consequently, young Oscar Bobb may make his Champions League debut on the right flank, according to our predicted lineup for Manchester City’s match against Red Star Belgrade.


As Phil Foden’s performance at No. 10 against Luton Town garnered attention, he may be afforded another opportunity to demonstrate his value in his natural position.Jack Grealish, who scored a crucial goal in the comeback victory over the Hatters, is also expected to make his left flank debut.


Pep Guardiola predicts that Erling Haaland will return to action on Thursday; therefore, Julian Alvarez is unlikely to start in place of Haaland as the sole striker for the treble-winning squad at the Rajko Mitic Stadium.


Predicted Manchester City lineup against Red Star Belgrade: Alvarez, Alvarez, Ortega, Lewis, Stones, Akanji, Gvardiol, Kovacic, Nunes, Bobb, Foden, and Grealish
