Tonight marks an important milestone for Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. This is his 300th match in charge of the club.

Manchester City have virtually replaced rival Manchester United in Group A, with Club Brugge replacing Istanbul Basaksehill in Group H last season.

Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig are moving forward from the group, demonstrating the challenges Citi faces in this campaign.

Last season, Leipzig and Basaksehil were costly for United, and the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team lost both games.

And if there’s a team like PSG with Lionel Messi added this season, what’s decisive for Guardiola’s men this year is the result for the Bundesliga team.

Of course, Rodri returned to the city team after being left on the Champions League final bench, and before the match tonight, after the midfielder revealed how terrible the defeat had affected him.

“In my situation, I have three days when I can’t even talk to my family and friends,” he said.

Rodri also said the experience would make the city stronger this season. I don’t remember many players who played the best games in the first few years. I think this club is doing it in stages every year.

“If we look at ourselves and find that we can reach the final, our goal is to reach another final. We are now experienced and must continue to work. We always need this little luck. We are confident we can have another great season. “

That’s why Kevin De Bruyne made his first appearance in Manchester City since his 12-minute cameo appearance after losing to Tottenham.

Zinchenko, Ake and Mahrez are other changes, with Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Ilkay Gundoan and Gabrieu Jesus giving way after defeating Leicester 1-0 on Saturday.

Raheem Sterling doesn’t have a place yet, but Phil Foden is on the bench for the first time this season after returning from his injury.

Leipzig made three changes: Forsberg, Adams and Klostermann, but the first 11 of Suzobosrai have no place.

RB Leipzig is two seasons away from reaching the Champions League semi-finals under Julian Nagelsmann-but it’s not straightforward to suggest that they are on the same side now.

Nagelsmann first set out for Bayern Munich and took Marcel Zabitzer and Dayot Upamecano. Ibrahima Konate also joined Liverpool at a high price this summer.

However, the Bundesliga side is a nifty operator in the transfer market and is considering a reorganization under former RB Salzburg director Jesse Marsch, so he added some interesting pieces.

André Silva arrived with Barcelona’s Elaix Moriva following the 28-goal season in Eintracht Frankfurt. Hungarian star Dominique Zobosley will make his first Champions League appearance in the club after arriving in January. Dani Olmo and Christopher Nkunku remain on the 2019/20 semi-final team and are usually in the spotlight.

However, losing to Bayern Munich 4-1 on Saturday was a reminder of the challenges they face this season.
