Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Manchester City will travel towards Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in Spain for the confrontation with Sevilla FC. Manchester City is currently the leader in the Premier League and is placed second of the table in group D, Sevilla on the other hand is 11th in the Primera Division and lost their last game against Villarreal 2-1 which will demotivate the team for the game against Manchester City. In the first game between both teams Manchester City had trouble securing the 3 points, Sevilla will be stronger at home and should be able to win a point. Despite a good result Sevilla will have to focus to reach the 3rd place which will qualify the Spanish team for the Europa League.
Highlighted Player (Pablo Zabaleta):
Pablo Zabaleta is a full back who plays for Premier League side Manchester City. The Argentine footballer began his senior career at San Lorenzo and in 2005 he joined La Liga side Espanyol. After spending three years at Cornella El Prat, Pablo Zabaleta signed a deal with Manchester City for a fee of £6.45 million.

Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
