The Croatians started their campaign in spectacular style, producing a 4-0 home win over Atalanta. But they have failed to add another win to their tally moving on to a W1 D2 L2 record in the campaign.

They have faced English opposition in 12 previous matches home and away, taking a W1 D2 L9 record from that sequence of games. Their lone win came against Arsenal in Zagreb back in 2015 which snapped an 11 match losing streak that they had been on in the competition. Zagreb’s home record against English visitors is W1 D1 L3. The Croatians are undefeated in ten European home games (W7 D3) including qualifying, losing just one of their last 15 such matches.

Manchester City News and Form – Will City win in Croatia?

Manchester City came racing out of the blocks in this campaign with three straight wins. They have drawn their last two, both 1-1 results against Atalanta and then Shakhtar Donetsk last time out. In their last nine Champions League games, Manchester City have tallied up a total of 26 goals. They have produced a W10 D3 L1 in the competition since their loss on Matchday One of last season’s campaign against Lyon. The Citizens have tallied 41 goals and have conceded 13 in that sequence of fourteen games.

In their last 20 European fixtures, Man City have won 11 and lost six. So it’s not been overwhelmingly strong stuff from them. Their game on Matchday Two against Zagreb was man City’s first-ever game against Croatian opposition. Across all competitions, Manchester City have collected only two wins in their last seven games (D3 L1) so they are not in top form by their usual high standards. They may struggle to hit top gear here with an under-strength side.
