thumbnail Hello,

The Bosnian striker scored the Citizens' winning goal in their Premier League tie with Fulham at the weekend, and has been rewarded with a start against the German champions

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has rewarded Edin Dzeko's winning goal against Fulham at the weekend with a start in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund.

The Bosnian striker replaces Carlos Tevez in attack, and there's also a place in the starting XI for Samir Nasri, with Gareth Barry missing out on the squad altogether.

The Citizens' boss has gone for a more attacking line-up than usual, dispensing of his two holding midfielders, but the back-line remains unchanged.

Jurgen Klopp makes two changes to the side that beat Borussia Monchengladbach 5-0 at the weekend.

Sven Bender replaces club captain Sebastian Kehl in midfield, while Robert Lewandowski has returned to the starting XI after being rested against die Fohlen.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy; Garcia, Yaya; Nasri, Silva; Aguero; Dzeko

Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Milner, Kolarov, Rodwell, Tevez, Balotelli

Borussia Dortmund: Weidenfeller; Schmelzer, Hummels, Subotic, Piszczek: Bender, Gundogan; Blaszczykowski, Gotze, Reus; Lewandowski.

Subs: Langerak, Felipe Santana, Kehl, Leitner, Grosskreutz, Perisic, Schieber.
