Overview

Manchester City enter this fixture after registering a comfortable 3-1 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League clash at the Etihad. This victory in the European competitions comes after their defeat at the hands of the same opponent at Camp Nou.

Pep Guardiola will be delighted with his side's response in the Europe's elite club competitions, which comes after his side's 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the league. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will be looking to extend his side's run when they take on one of the three promoted clubs to the Premier League.

Middlesbrough have registered only two wins in England's top flight club competition so far this season. The first one was over strugglers Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, while their last win came against AFC Bournemouth in the previous fixture at home.

Boro will be looking for their third win, but they will be aware that it will be difficult to beat City in their own backyard.
