Sergio Aguero has returned to the Manchester City starting line-up for their Champions League clash against Bayern Munich at The Etihad.

The striker missed the 3-2 defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend, but will come straight back into the side to face the current European champions and partner Edin Dzeko up front.

City kicked off their Champions League campaign with a fine 3-0 win at Viktoria Plzen, while Bayern cruised to a 3-0 victory over CSKA Moscow in Munich.

Manuel Pellegrini's men have taken four wins from four at home in all competitions this season, but they have struggled on the road after losing to Villa and have only won one of four so far.

Manchester City: Hart, Richards, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy, Toure, Fernandinho, Navas, Nasri, Aguero, Dzeko.

Substitutes: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Lescott, Milner, Garcia, Silva, Negredo.

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Dante, Ribéry, Robben, Rafinha, Boateng, Lahm, Müller, Alaba, Schweinsteiger, Kroos.

Substitutes: Starke, Van Buyten, Mandzukic, Shaqiri, Kirchhoff, Gotze, Contento.
