Bayern's Champions League quarter-final opponents Manchester City are in strong form going into the second leg at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday. The Sky Blues celebrated victory in the Premier League on Saturday, beating second-from-bottom Leicester City 3-1 at home. The tenth successive win in all competitions moved Pep Guardiola's side to within four points of leaders Arsenal, who were held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham United on Sunday and have played one game more.

Two-goal Haaland on course for record

Celebraiton Erling Haaland Manchester City
Erling Haaland is on course for a record in his first season in the Premier League with 32 goals already.

After the early opener from John Stones in the fifth minute, Erling Haaland's brace put City 3-0 up inside 25 minutes. It was the Norwegian's 31st and 32nd league goals of the season, meaning there's a good chance he'll beat the record for the most goals in one Premier League campaign shared by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer (34) in the remaining eight matches. Kelechi Iheanacho's 75th-minute effort proved to be nothing more than a consolation for Leicester.

Man City line-up against Leicester: Ederson – Stones (Akanji 46'), Rúben Dias, Laporte – Rodri (Phillips 53'), Bernado Silva – Walker, Mahrez, De Bruyne (Palmer 62'), Grealish (Sergio Gómez 74') – Haaland (Álvarez 46').
