Manchester City's Champions League hopes rest on a much-needed win against the formidable Bayern Munich at the Etihad on Tuesday.
City are without Yaya Toure and Fernandinho as both were sent-off during the 2-1 home defeat against CSK Moscow.
City will go out if they fail to beat Bayern and either CSKA Moscow or Roma win their game. Manuel Pellegrini's side have only managed two points from their first four Group E games.
Sami Nasir warned that some players might be replaced if they fail to make it through the Champions League knockout stages.
Bayern have already qualified as winners of the group and beat City 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season. However, the German side are without Philipp Lahm, David Alaba, Javi Martinez, Holger Badstuber and Thiago Alcantara.Reuse content
