Premier League Preview: Manchester City v Real Madrid

Manchester City are without top scorer Sergio Aguero for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid on Friday.

The Argentinian is still recovering from knee surgery but could return for the latter stages should City progress to the last-eight tournament in Lisbon.

Left-back Benjamin Mendy is suspended and goalkeeper number two goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is again doubtful with the muscular problem that has kept him out in recent weeks. New signings Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres cannot feature.

Provisional squad: Ederson, Bravo, Bazunu, Carson, Walker, Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Garcia, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Rodri, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D Silva, B Silva, Sterling, Mahrez, Foden, Jesus.
