In a game played in the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City will travel to face Schalke 04 in the first leg of the round of 16 tie on Wednesday.
Manchester City are the defending champions of the Premier League and are leading the table this time out as well. The team has been in fantastic form, but their legacy will always be under threat if they are never able to win the UEFA Champions League. This team is good enough to do something in this competition and with a coach such as Pep Guardiola at the helm, the players will be looking to up their game in order to make their presence felt in the first leg of this knockout phase.
Meanwhile, Schalke 04 are having a horrible season and are in the 14th spot in the Bundesliga table. The team is nowhere near good enough to do anything at all and if things don’t improve, it will see them getting relegated as well. The entire management is worried about their jobs and they will have to make sure that the players are playing for pride in games of this magnitude. A win over a side such as Manchester City can help them turn things around and might end up being the motivation needed to get better results in the remaining games.
When and where?
This match is to be played at Veltins-Arena, Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The ground has a capacity of 62,271.
