Manchester City travel to Sporting Lisbon today for their opening last-16 tie in UEFA Champions League 2021/22.
The match takes place at the Estadio Jose Alvalade, and will be shown live on BT Sport 2.
While the Lisbon club have not featured in the competition’s knockout rounds since suffering a record defeat by Bayern Munich in the 2008/09 last 16, City have progressed from the group stage for the ninth season in a row and have become adept at negotiating this hurdle after three defeats in their first four ties.
City qualified for this contest as Group A winners, recording four victories from their six matches – although two of their three away games ended in defeat – while Sporting finished second in Group C despite losing their first two matches.
The teams’ only games before this contest came in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League round of 16, a tie won by Sporting on away goals.
Tonight’s coverage starts at 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
Liverpool’s visit to Inter Milan on Wednesday will also be shown on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm.
