In the Premier League, The Citizens also showed all their power against their Manchester neighbors United by beating them comfortably 4-1 at home.

City, who have reached at least the quarter-finals since the 2016-2017 campaign, could match the record for six consecutive home victories in the Champions League knockout stages.

Sporting vs. Goliath and history

Things are smoother in the Portuguese league for Rúben Amorim's team, as they are sitting second in the standings, six points behind leaders Porto, so they still have a chance to win their domestic competition.

Sporting have never advanced past the last-16 stage, with the Portuguese side only making it this far once before, in 2008-09, where they also lost the first leg of the tie 5-0, against Bayern Munich.

Man City and Sporting have only ever met at the Etihad once before. The Citizens won 3-2 in the last-16 of the Europa League but they were knocked out on away goals.
