Haaland is a doubt for Manchester City’s Champions League match.

Haaland, 23, left Saturday’s Premier League 6-1 triumph against Bournemouth before halftime with a twisted ankle.

If City wins, they will qualify for the last 16 with two games to spare.

When asked if Haaland would be able to play, City manager Pep Guardiola responded, “We will speak with the doctor – I don’t know.”

“I will listen to the doctors,” Guardiola added. If [the doctor] says he’s ready and not in discomfort, I’ll consider him for the game.

“Yesterday he told me he felt much better than the day of the game.”

Haaland has 13 goals for City this season in all competitions and took part in the portion of Monday’s afternoon practice that was open to the media.

City, the reigning European champions, have won their opening three Group G matches, including a 3-1 triumph in Switzerland two weeks ago in the reverse matchup.

“We will try to finish and qualify for February and the next stage,” Guardiola told reporters. “It means a great deal to the club.” Being present is a sign of success.

“It’s more important than you can imagine because it allows us to park the car until February and focus on the Premier League and other things.” We have to shut it down on Tuesday.

“You must try to finish first.” We have the opportunity to play the second game [of the last 16] at home, which is absolutely preferable.”

Young Boys lead the Swiss Super League, but they have only one point from three Champions League games and will be eliminated if they lose to City and RB Leipzig wins away at Red Star Belgrade.
