HEAD TO HEAD:
The last time they met Manchester City won the clash 2-0 which happens to be the first leg of this match, Pep Guardiola’s team have a slight head to head advantage, it is only one competitive game that has been played between so far.
The Croatian team has maintained a steady run of form in their last six games, they won three games, drew two and suffered a defeat, the defeat was in the Champions League against Atalanta.
In the domestic scene, they have managed to avoid defeats in their last five games.
The Cityzens have struggled to find their past form of the last few seasons that made them barely unbeatable both in the domestic league and in the Champions League.
They have a record of just two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six games, one can easily conclude that the team is out of form by their standard.
