Schalke vs. Manchester City (Champions League): Starting Lineups & TV Information

The Champions League returns at long last tonight with Manchester City entering the Round of 16 once again with a two-legged tie against Bundesliga side Schalke.

Pep Guardiola and his men are in Gelsenkirchen tonight for the first leg at the VELTINS-Arena and will hope Schalke’s patchy league form, which sees them down in 14th in Germany’s top-flight, is much the same on the highest stage of European football.

Schalke XI: Fahrmann, Nastasic, Bruma, Sané, Oczipka, Bentaleb, McKennie, Caligiuri, Mendyl, Serdar, Uth
