Manchester City manager Mark Hughes could restore Robinho to the team for the Uefa Cup quarter-final second leg.

The Brazilian striker was on the bench in Sunday's home defeat by Fulham but with Craig Bellamy injured is expected to start the match at Eastlands.

Shaun Wright-Phillips (ankle), Vincent Kompany and Wayne Bridge (hamstrings) should overcome injury problems but Nigel de Jong is cup-tied.

City are aiming to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Martin Jol's side.

Hamburg will be without defenders Collin Benjamin and Guy Demel because of thigh injuries but skipper David Jarolim is available after missing the 1-0 defeat by Stuttgart at the weekend through suspension.

"We laid down a good foundation in the first leg. Now we need to concentrate and advance to the semi-finals," said Jarolim.

Man City (from): Given, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Zabaleta, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Elano, Ireland, Kompany, Robinho, Bojinov, Garrido, Fernandes, Sturridge, Evans, Etuhu, McGivern, Hart, Petrov.
