Group E has suddenly became one of the complicated groups as Bayern has already qualified for the knockout stages while Manchester City, AS Roma and CSKA Moscow are all stuck on 5 points, Each of three teams has an equal chance to qualify for knockout stages.
Roma and City will play out tonight but they will be dependent on Bayern vs CSKA match as well, Roma will be through if they win against City tonight and if CSKA draws, Roma can also get through if CSKA looses to Bayern and Roma and City have a goalless draw.
Manchester City on the other hand can only qualify with a win tonight against Roma and they also hope that CSKA looses or draw against Bayern, and they can also through if they are able to draw with a score and hope then that CSKA looses so they can still qualify but this could be very risky. So City just cannot afford to loose or else they will join Liverpool who are knocked out last night.
Manchester City: Pellegrini has revealed that Aguero is out for 4-6 weeks, This could be serious concern as Aguero has been in crazy form. while there are several news that Silva is also doubtful and Toure is suspended.
AS Roma: Castan and Torosidis are out with respective head and calf injuries.
Roma and City are currently placed second in their respective leagues but City will be more confident as they have beaten Bayern in last outing at Etihad Stadium but tonight they have to play at Rome which can be difficult, Roma on the other hand are also very confident as they just need a win or goalless draw and hope that CSKA also loose.
We are hoping for an exciting encounter, Both teams will try to win and they will keep an eye open to Bayern Vs CSKA fixture which will create more drama.
