The MCI vs HOF match preview –
In UEFA Champions League, English champions Manchester City will be travelling to Germany to play against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the second game week of the competition.
Manchester City have looked good this season as well. Except for the blip against Wolves where they drew, the team has won all of their games. Even though they aren’t destroying teams like they did last year, the wins are helping them stay in touch with the league leaders. Manchester City have one of the best squads in the world, and if these group of players don’t go till the far end of the UEFA Champions League, it would be a travesty.
However, the story of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim isn’t the same. They are labouring to victories. The team still doesn’t know what is their best formation. If they don’t get the basics right, it is quite possible a mauling is in front of them at the hands of Manchester City. Coach Julian Nagelsmann will be looking to keep the players who have performed well and keeping the dead wood on the bench.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction Manchester City vs TSG 1899 Hoffenheim –
Manchester City look unstoppable and we back them to win this game.
Hoffenheim- The German side are expected to be without captain Kevin Vogt who is suffering from a thigh injury, as well as defenders Ermin Bicakcic and Havard Nordtveit. Stefan Posch, Kevin Akpoguma and Justin Hoogma are most likely to replace them. Midfield duo of Nadiem Amiri and Dennis Geiger remain a big doubt for this match.
Manchester City- Benjamin Mendy is likely to miss this match along with Claudio Bravo, Fabian Delph, and Eliaquim Mangala. Kevin De Bruyne is back in training but this game may have come too soon for him to play. Sergio Aguero is carrying a foot injury, however, Pep Guardiola told the media that the club doctors have given a go-ahead nod to the Argentinian. So he could be involved, but Gabriel Jesus is the most likely striker to start for the Cityzens.
