“If Pep Guardiola don’t play me against small team like Bournemouth that automatically implies I am not needed in the team anymore and I have to pack my bags and leave to Saudi – £30 Million City Star has told the media if he doesn’t play today his leaving to Saudi Arabia

Six changes by Pep Guardiola, with the 20-year-old star starting: Red Star Belgrade vs. Man City: projected starting lineup
We believe Pep Guardiola will start a rotating lineup for Wednesday’s match between Manchester City and Red Star Belgrade because the former has already won their Champions League group.

The Spaniard, in our opinion, might make six changes from the starting lineup that defeated Luton Town 2-1 on Sunday.

Red Star Belgrade vs. Manchester City: expected starting lineup
According to our predicted lineup, Stefan Ortega is expected to start in goal against Red Star Belgrade because it was reported that Ederson Moraes missed Tuesday’s training session due to illness.

According to the Sky Blues’ official website, the Brazilian is not included in the travelling team for the match, which essentially guarantees Ortega a starting position.

With Kyle Walker receiving a rare break this season, Rico Lewis may be called up to the right back position.

Ruben Dias may also lose his position as his team’s right-sided center-half to John Stones, particularly following his late appearance against Luton Town.

Our Manchester City starting lineup for their match against Red Star Belgrade suggests that Manuel Akanji will start in place of the injured Nathan Ake, who Pep Guardiola stated in late November “cannot play every three days.”

Following a promising showing at left-back against Luton Town, Josko Gvardiol might be able to hold onto his starting spot.

Mateo Kovacic will drop deeper to play as a defensive midfielder, while Rodri, whose importance to the Sky Blues has been extensively debated, may have a precautionary rest.

As a result of the Spanish international being benched, Matheus Nunes, who has started the last two games as a late substitution, may end up taking the field.

The £53 million (Sky Sports) player hasn’t had a spectacular debut at the Etihad Stadium due to injury and rotation, but he has an opportunity to change that on Wednesday.

Like with Rodri, Pep Guardiola might decide not to take a chance on Bernardo Silva getting hurt. Consequently, our Manchester City lineup prediction for the match against Red Star Belgrade suggests that youthful Oscar Bobb will start on the right wing for the first time in the Champions League.

Phil Foden, who made waves against Luton Town with his performance as a No. 10, might be given another opportunity to establish himself in his native position.

It appears likely that Jack Grealish, who stepped up with a crucial goal against the Hatters, will start on the left wing.

Even though Pep Guardiola believes Erling Haaland will begin his recovery from injury on Thursday, Julian Alvarez remains the lone striker for the treble-winning team at Rajko Mitic Stadium.

The following is Manchester City’s expected starting lineup against Red Star Belgrade: Bobb, Grealish, Alvarez, Ortega, Lewis, Stones, Akanji, Gvardiol, and Kovacic.
