The new keeper made his City Champions League debut last week with an impressive performance. Looking assured and confident, making a few saves early on to maintain his clean sheet.
This game will be another opportunity for Ortega to build on match experience with the blues before the League Cup clash against Chelsea, which I suspect he will start.
Having already made some appearances this season and impressing during that time, it’s possible that his inclusion will not only be fantastic experience but will also allow Cancelo a well-deserved break.
With many of the senior boys likely to be rested, I do expect some of them to be involved. We’ll need a skipper, and I am shouting our number 3 for the spot, who was also rested last weekend vs. Leicester.
Very underrated performances for the blues, he has been a solid force. Another, along with Dias who was rested last weekend, meaning he will be refreshed ahead of Sevilla.
Sergio Gomez will be unavailable due to the red card received during his start away against Copenhagen. The youngster Wilson-Esbrand will be an excellent option. He has impressed with his pace, his desire to get forward and his ability to take on the opposition. Could be a good night for him.
