Manchester City welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers having enjoyed some prolific form in their recent matches in the English Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.
City welcome Wolves at the Etihad Stadium as they look to close the gap on leaders Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola’s men are second on the table with 50 points after 21 games having beaten Liverpool and then scored 16 goals in their last two matches – seven against Rotherham United and nine against Burton Albion.
They will be looking for a fourth consecutive home win against Wolves.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are ninth with 29 points but a negative goal difference does not do them any favours as they meet a goalhungry City.
Wolves come into this game having beaten Liverpool 2-1 in the third round of the FA Cup.
There is so much at stake for both teams in this clash, but I will definitely put my money on a City win. Pool Name: S6 V1 P2 M1: Hapoel Tel Aviv v Maccabi Tel Aviv. Away win for Maccabi.
