Rico Lewis, 17, scores a howl in City’s first senior start as Pep Guardiola’s side bounce back from an early setback to clinch the final group stage victory

Manchester City topped Group G and qualified as group winners as they prepare to host Sevilla at Etihad tonight.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side will be without Erling Haaland as the Norwegian continues his recovery from a foot problem.

City probably don’t need him anyway as they are already through, but he would have liked to score more goals.

Instead, we can expect a lot of rotation from the Citizens as they can use this game as an opportunity to test some of their young players.

Meanwhile, Sevilla have confirmed third place so they could also turn after a pretty disastrous Champions League campaign in which they won just one game.

But the La Liga side are masters of the Europa League and should have much more joy in 2023 when UEFA competitions resume.
