Here is the team chosen by Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola as he and his players seek to overturn a 0-3 deficit from the first leg.
There are four changes to the side that lost the derby to Manchester United last weekend.
Into the team come Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.
They replace Danilo, Vincent Kompany, Fabian Delph and Ilkay Gundogan, which demonstrates the attacking intent from City.
Laporte, who played at left-back in the first leg, looks set to partner Nicolas Otamendi at centre-back, with Fernandinho operating at left-back.
Sergio Aguero is among the substitutes following his return from injury.
