Frank Lampard v Xabi Alonso

Frank Lampard Man City

With Yaya Toure and Fernandinho suspended following some inexplicable moments of madness against CSKA Moscow in the last tie of the round, City will have to rely on an ageing Frank Lampard and inconsistent Fernando to shepherd their midfield.

Lampard has done well when he’s been called on this season but will most likely be up against Bayern’s bargain of the summer Xabi Alonso who has a 92.7% pass success rate in the Champions League this season, according to WhoScored. Bastian Schweinsteiger is also fit again which may make it a bridge too far for the Chelsea legend.
