Aalborg BK vs Man City Thurs 19Th Mar 20:00 pm

Back to Denmark for City, where we take a two goal advantage into our second leg encounter with Aalborg BK.

In the first leg of this tie City played really well and stopped Aalborg, a team that has proved themselves to be a good side, from playing their game. I still think we will have to be careful not to be complacent tomorrow, Aalborg will have to come out and play at us and they do have players capable of causing a threat.

At the risk of being over confident, I don't think we have anything to worry about tomorrow night. We were clearly head and shoulders above Aalborg in the first leg and I expect us to be able to hold out at the very least tomorrow, if not win the game. So fingers crossed quarter finals here we come!!!!!!!!

City team news:
Vincent Kompany is in the squad after suffering from a toe injury, but it is still undecided whether he will start or not. Hughes has chose not to rush Craig Bellamy back from injury, so he did not travel with the squad. Nigel De Jong and Valeri Bojinov are ineligible.

Aalborg Bk team news:
Aalborg will have four players missing from their squad when they face City tomorrow night. Dutch defender Steve Olfers, Norweigen defender Kjetil Wæhler and Danish forward Jeppe Curth, all look set to miss out with injury. Danish midfielder Thomas Enevoldsen is suspended for the home team.

Possible Man City line up:
Given, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Bridge, Zabaleta, Elano, Wright-Phillips, Ireland, Robinho, Caicedo.

Possible Aalborg BK line up: Zaza, Bøgelund, Wæhler, Beauchamp, Jakobsen, Risgård, Augustinussen, Caca, Johansson, Due, Shelton.

My prediction: Aalborg BK 0 - 2 Man City

Worth a bet: Robinho to score in a 2 - 0 win for City.
