Monaco and Man City set for second leg thriller

If their Champions League first leg is anything to go by Monaco and Manchester City’s decisive return leg in the principality should be another thriller.

Monaco let slip a 3-2 lead to lose 5-3 two weeks ago at the Etihad leaving the French first division leaders needing to score at least twice if they are to progress to the quarters.

The leading scorers in Europe’s top five leagues are without suspended Kamil Glik, Boschilla and Carillo also miss out while Radamel Falcao faces a late fitness test on a hip injury.

Man City will be looking to reach the last eight of Europe’s elite club competition for only the second time.

Coach Pep Guardiola, who will be taking charge of his 100th Champions League game, has no fresh injury concerns.

Willy Caballero meanwhile is expected to take over from Claudio Bravo between the sticks for what could be another goal fest.

Elsewhere on Wednesday night last season’s runners up Atletico Madrid will have Fernando Torres back in the fold after a head injury a fortnight ago when they host Bayer Leverkusen.

The Spaniards hold a solid 4-2 advantage from the first leg.
