Pep Guardiola could hint at his team news thinking ahead of Manchester City's Champions League trip to Germany to face RB Leipzig when he faces the media this afternoon.

City have already topped their group with a game to spare, so Guardiola is expected to make a number of changes and rest some of his stars ahead of next weekend's Premier League fixture with Wolves.

Guardiola has referenced players like Rodri, Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo as having played 'too much' in recent weeks, while there could be an opportunity for fringe players to stake their claim for more regular game-time in the coming weeks.

RB Leipzig sacked manager Jesse Marsch this week, but can still qualify for a Europa League spot if they match Club Brugge's result away to PSG. These two sides were involved in a highly-entertaining 6-3 contest at the start of the group stage at the Etihad.

We'll bring you every word from Guardiola's press conference right here.

Zinchenko to speak

As is the requirements for a Champions League press conference, a player will be speaking too.

Aleks Zinchenko is the player chosen, raising the likelihood of him starting tomorrow.

However, he's been picked for these press confreences before, and infamously was left out of the matchday for a return to Ukraine when City beat Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018.

Who can City face in the next round?

City have secured a place in the last-16 as group winners, meaning they'll face a runner up in the last-16.

City can't face any English side or PSG, who they played in the group stages. These are the sides who have either confirmed a second place spot, or can still qualify this week:

Real Madrid and Inter Milan have also confirmed a place in the last 16 from Group D, but their final placing has to be confirmed.

The five other spots will be filled by one of Porto, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid from Group B, Barcelona or Benfica from Group E, Villarreal or Atalanta from Group F

Who was spotted in training?

Let's start with the squad news, as there were no surprises or notable absentees in training earlier.

There was, though, five youngsters included in the group, suggesting they could be included in the squad to travel to Germany later.

Good afternoon!
