Manchester City have an opportunity to end their unbeaten group-stage campaign in the Champions League on a positive note when they welcome Sevilla on Wednesday night. The defending Premier League champions have made a good start to this season and have lost only once in all competitions. In their European group, they have won three and drew the remaining two to sit at the top of the table. The same cannot be said for Sevilla who are set to finish third and drop down to the Europa League.

The Spanish side are surprisingly experiencing massive struggles in La Liga this season. It is evident from their position in the table, as they are occupying the final relegation spot (18th place) in the table, with just 10 points from 12 matches. Sevilla have a chance to end the group stage on a high, however, to get a win from the upcoming clash at Etihad might just be too much to ask from the Spaniards. Meanwhile, Manchester City are second in the Premier League table with 29 points from 12 games. They have been impressive in both domestic and European matches, making them the clear favourites on Wednesday night.

These two teams have not played in this competition very often, and certainly not that much at the Etihad Stadium. In the one match that happened in 2015, Manchester City edged Sevilla 2-1. Other than that these two sides have not played each other in this competition on this ground. Despite Man City will head into this fixture as the overwhelming favourites, Sevilla have a habit of doing well in European games. Hence, Pep Guardiola will not take anything for granted when they host the Spanish outfit.
