Manchester City will be Fine against Lyon even without Aguero
Manchester City will be looking to move one step closer to winning their first-ever Champions League trophy when they face Olympique Lyon at Estadio Jose Alvalade. The Citizens proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Real Madrid, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football game.
Kun Aguero remains in the recovery room, but the good news for Pep Guardiola is that full-back Benjamin Mendy returns from suspension, the manager said: “Anything can happen, it is a knockout game, but we are ready.” “The pressure will be there, but it will be for all the other teams.” “Sergio Aguero will miss Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final against Lyon on Saturday through injury,” Pep Guardiola confirmed.
The Argentina striker had surgery on his knee in Barcelona in June but had yet to be ruled out of the resumption of the Champions League. However, the 32-year old Argentine has not joined his team-mates since the injury he is still receiving treatment in Spain. City boss said: “He is still in Barcelona making a recovery,” If City wins they will play Bayern Munich in who thrashed Barca 8-2 the semi-final on Wednesday.
