MANCHESTER — Manchester City will aim to overturn a massive three-goal deficit when they take on fellow English Premier League outfits Liverpool in their Champions League quarter-final second leg clash at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Fox Sports 1 USA will provide live television coverage for the USA viewers, while WatchESPN, FoxSportsGO and FOX Soccer Match Pass will provide the live online streaming options.
For UK viewers, BT Sport 2 will have the television coverage, while BBC Radio Manchester and TalkSport Radio UK have live radio audio commentary.
Liverpool enter this second leg clash with a heavy lead after thrashing Manchester City 3-0 in the first-leg at Anfield last week.
Mo Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane provided the goals for the Reds in the first meeting and Pep Guardiola has admitted that although he remains confident, he knows his side a mountain to climb if it is to stay in this year’s Champions League.
Tuesday’s meeting will be the 180th between the two sides with Liverpool leading the longtime series with 88 wins, compared to the Citizens’ 45. This head-to-head battle has seen 46 draws.
Despite leaving the first meeting with a hamstring injury and sitting out the Premier League battle with Everton over the weekend, Salah is expected to be available, but Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is still deciding if he will start the Egyptian.
Meanwhile, for Manchester City, Sergio Aguero is in line to make his first start for more than a month.
Guardiola knows that he will need at least three goals to get back into this tie and the Argentina striker who returned from a knee injury as a late substitute in Saturday’s derby defeat to Manchester United, is expected to start.
Central defender John Stones, who missed the derby with a muscle problem, is doubtful for the this second league clash as well for the English Premier League leaders.
