Manchester City play host to Hoffenheim in the UEFA Champions League at the Etihad Stadium this evening.
Pep Guardiola’s side need just a point to qualify for the next stage as group winners.
City booked their place in the round of 16 with a 2-2 draw at Lyon last time out, and hold a three-point lead over the French club at the top of the standings.
The English champions will therefore clinch first place if they avoid defeat, or if Lyon do not win at Shakhtar Donetsk.
Hoffenheim are on three points – all from draws – two behind third-placed Shakhtar. Out of contention for a top-two finish, they must win and hope Shakhtar lose in order to earn a UEFA Europa League place.
The English side came from behind to win in Germany on matchday two in what was Hoffenheim’s first home group game in the UEFA Champions League.
Ishak Belfodil gave the hosts a dream start with a first-minute goal, but Sergio Agüero levelled seven minutes later before David Silva struck an 87th-minute winner.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT Sport will also air Manchester United’s clash with Valencia on BT Sport 3 from 7.15pm this evening.
