The two best-ranked teams in the Premier League will have their date tonight in the Champions League. Liverpool and Manchester City will play their last game of the group stage and have already confirmed their passage to the Round of 16 as first in their zones.

The Citizens secured the top spot in Group A and will play in the first tie of fixtures at 11:15 PM (India) against RB Leipzig. Pep Guardiola‘s team drags seven consecutive victories between the Champions League, where it beat Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint Germain, and the Premier League, where it comfortably beat Watford and snatched first place from Chelsea this last date.

Manchester City high point? Bernardo Silva is in world top mood. Not only because of his last two goals in the Premier League, but also because of his break as an inside midfielder. Come on: he already seems like one more forward. A week ago, Guardiola said:

“He was the best two seasons ago when we made 98 points. He was also the best”.

In any case, it is expected that the Citizens coach will make modifications to the team and send some youth to the field. The homegrown players who traveled with the delegation and could have minutes are Cole Palmer, CJ Egan-Riley, James McAtee, Roméo Lavia and Josh Wilson-Esbrand. As if that were not enough, RB Leipzig fired their coach Jesse March and in front there will be an eliminated team, which does not find its way and is ranked 11th in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool is assured of first place in Group B, but they will not have a restful night on their visit to Milan as the Italians need to win to qualify for the Round of 16. The first leg was a round trip with five goals and victory for England. If we go to the numbers, this meeting is promising: in the last three games between Liverpool and Milan, 14 goals have been scored.

At 1:30 AM (India), the Reds will star in one of the last most heartbreaking definitions of this day: if they lose to Milan, Atlético Madrid’s chances are zero. From Spain there is speculation with the decision of Jürgen Klopp to put substitutes for tomorrow’s game and thus leave Diego Simeone’s team with no chances, with whom he has a bad relationship this last time. The German coach broke away from the controversy and said:

“We have to rotate, we will rotate, it is clear that ‘we have to do it’ is the headline actually. I am in the hands of the medical department more or less because I have to accept all the decisions”.

As if to add to the controversy and general morbidity, Sergio Conceição, Porto’s coach, who depends on himself and will face Atlético Madrid in Portugal, he said:

The truth is also that Milan will not be able to count on several starters such as Kjaer, Calabria, Rafael Leao, Rebic, Giroud and Pellegri. Of course, everyone wants to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic on this magical Champions League night.
