Manchester City vs. Borussia Dortmund: Lineups

Borussia Dortmund's lineup features one minor surprise, though it shouldn't be too stunning that Jürgen Klopp has opted for athleticism over experience. Captain Sebastian Kehl will start the match on the bench, and Sven Bender will start in his place.

Manchester City are going with a back four, and have given another start to promising young central defender Matija Nastasić. He obviously has a great future in front of him, but he'll have his hands full tracking the runs of Dortmund's three attacking midfield players. The good news for him is that he'll have plenty of help from the shiny new defensive midfielder in front of him and the world class defender next to him.

Manchester City starting lineup (4-2-2-2): Joe Hart; Gaël Clichy, Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasić, Pablo Zabaleta; Javi Garcia; Yaya Toure; David Silva, Samir Nasri; Sergio Agüero, Edin Džeko

Borussia Dortmund lineup (4-2-3-1): Roman Weidenfeller; Marcel Schmelzer, Mats Hummels, Neven Subotić, Łukasz Piszczek; Sven Bender, İlkay Gündoğan; Mario Götze, Marco Reus, Jakub Błaszczykowski; Robert Lewandowski
