Good news for Manchester City as they kick off their Champions League campaign with the return of captain Vincent Kompany. Kompany, who's been missing for almost all of the season so far, should restore some stability to a defence that's been looking distinctly wobbly in his absence. If they can also secure an away win in Plzen, Manuel Pellegrini's side will be on the right path for reaching the knockout stage for the first time in their history.
Viktoria Plzen starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Matus Kazacik; David Limbersky, Vaclav Prochazka, Lukas Hejda, Frantisek Rajtoral; Pavel Horvath, Tomas Horava; Jan Kovarik, Daniel Kolar, Milan Petrzela; Marek Bakos.
Substitutes from: Petr Bolek, Roman Hubnik, Martin Pospisil, Zdenek Koukal, Stanislav Tecl, Michal Duris, Tomas Wagner.
Manchester City starting lineup (4-2-2-2): Joe Hart; Aleksandar Kolarov, Matija Nastasic, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta; Fernandinho, Yaya Toure; Samir Nasri, Jesus Navas; Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko.
