Man City vs. Juventus - Preview
Probable starting eleven:
Hart, Sagna, Kompany, Mangala, Kolarov, Toure, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Silva, Nasri, Bony
Buffon, Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini, Lichtsteiner, Marchisio, Hernanes, Pogba, Evra, Mandzukic, Morata
Manchester City started the new season in fantastic way. They managed to beat all games so far and sit on the first place. The atmosphere in the squad is positive, while the players confidence is very high. The manager Manuel Pellegrini is also satisfied and said:
"We are more consistent team than last year, a more solid team, more concentrating when we don’t have the ball. We have so much trust in the way we create chances. We lost many important points last season against relegated teams. Now we are in another season. The past is the past. We are just thinking about the present and the present now is to think about Juventus."
However, the key player Sergio Aguero have suffered an injury on the last match and he will miss the match. This is a huge handicap for the Citizens. Aguero is simply irreplaceable. In addition, Raheem Sterling, who didn't play during the weekend because of injury, is doubtful for this match. Pablo Zabaleta and Fabian Delph will miss this match.
Juventus have a lot of problems at the start of the new season. They are yet to record their first win in Serie A, having lost against Udinese and Roma and drawn with Chievo last weekend. However, I believe they are able to stay unbeaten at Etihad. Juventus are very experienced team and they will play "catenaccio". I expect a draw here.
