Alternatively, City could still advance by drawing in the Italian capital by a score of 2-2 or greater, as, if points are equal in the group, the standings are decided on head-to-head in the competition and City drew 1-1 with Roma in Manchester earlier on.

Even a CSKA draw in Munich could be enough, in addition to a 1-1 scoreline in Rome, as then City's goal difference will be greater.

"It's very difficult because I cannot say without the opinion of the doctor how his injury will improve in the next days," Pellegrini admitted

"It depends what degree of muscle injury he has. It's very difficult to know in this moment if he can play against Rome.

"He is not able to play against Sunderland or against Everton, that's sure.

"We'll see if he arrives against Roma. That will depend on the opinion of the doctor."
