Porto vs Man City: Champions League preview

Pep Guardiola’s side have won all four of their matches so far to coast into the knockout stages, and second-placed Porto by three points with two games to spare.

While Man City have been far from perfect domestically, Europe has been plain sailing for them up until now – and that will fuel the feeling that this could finally be their year.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Porto vs Man City is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
