Serbian referee Srdjan Jovanovic will be the man in charge this Tuesday evening when City travel to Portgual for their clash against Sporting in the UEFA Champions League round-of-16.

Referee: Srjdan Jovanovic
Assistant referees: Uros Stojkovic, Milan Mihajlovic
Fourth official: Novak Simovic
VAR: Marco Fritz
