Brugge vs Man City confirmed line-ups: Team news ahead of Champions League fixture
Both players were unavailable for Saturday’s win over Burnley following their involvement for Brazil in World Cup qualifying as they had flown directly to Belgium for the match.
City will be wary of another Club Brugge upset after the Belgian champions defied the odds to take four points from their opening two matches against Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig in Group A.
Pep Guardiola’s side were beaten by PSG last time out and sit third in the standings with three points, following their opening win over RB Leipzig last month.

Jack Grealish, Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker could all return to the line-up after starting Saturday’s match against Burnley on the bench, which could see Raheem Sterling and John Stones drop out.
Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko have returned from injuries but Ferran Torres has been ruled out for the rest of the year with a broken foot.

Club Brugge: 9/1
Manchester City: 1/4
Manchester City will be treating Club Brugge seriously as the Belgian side have upset the odds so far in the Champions League, but Pep Guardiola’s team remain heavy favourites and will be confident of picking up three points. Club Brugge 0-2 Manchester City
