Team News

F.C Porto
Porto midfielder Mateus Uribe was not involved in last week's win over Marseille due to an abscess, but the Colombian should be fit enough to start this encounter after coming off the bench against Santa Clara.

The 29-year-old makes a timely return to the fold with Marko Grujic suspended for this encounter - the Liverpool loanee was given his marching orders against Marseille for two bookable offences.

Moussa Marega should return to spearhead the Porto attack in place of Mehdi Taremi, but Pepe is still nursing a foot problem and is unlikely to feature on Tuesday.
Porto possible starting lineup:
Marchesin; Manafa, Mbemba, Sarr, Sanusi; Uribe, Otavio, Oliveira; Corona, Marega, Diaz
Porto Champions League form: LWWW
Porto form (all competitions): LWWWWW

Manchester City
As for Man City, Aguero's knee problem flared up before the visit of Burnley and the prolific Argentine was forced to miss out - he remains a doubt for the trip to Portugal as well.

Nathan Ake is fit and available again after recovering from a hamstring injury, while Aymeric Laporte should also return to the fold after being rested at the weekend.

Phil Foden is expected to start once again after notching up the winner against Olympiacos last week, while Joao Cancelo, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva are all candidates to make the first XI.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, De Bruyne, Foden; Silva, Jesus, Sterling
Manchester City Champions League form: WWWW
Manchester City form (all competitions): WWDLWW

Prediction: Porto 1-2 Manchester City
