Man City vs PSG: Predictions
Pep Guardiola’s men wrapped up a stunning 2-1 victory away from home in the first-leg of this enthralling semi-final clash. The Parisians took the lead in the first half, however, Guardiola’s half-time team talk clearly brought his side back to life as goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez proved enough to earn them the advantage and two away goals for the second leg.
Perhaps just as concerning for Mauricio Pochettino as their defeat was the lack of discipline his side had when City came back into the game in the second half. Idrissa Gueye will miss the second leg after receiving a straight red card for his horrific challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.
Starboy Kylian Mbappe had very little to feed off in the game at the Parce des Princes but Pochettino will be hoping he can feature on Tuesday having missed their Ligue 1 victory on Saturday. The Frenchman has netted five goals in his last two Champions League away games which came away to Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
The Premier League title is now all but sealed for Guardiola and with the Carabao Cup recently lifted, the Spanish coach will be hoping to avoid any slip up on Tuesday as he eyes City’s first-ever Champions League trophy.
Man City vs PSG: Match Stats
PSG have fared better in the Champions League games away from home having scored a combined seven goals in their last two games away from the Parc des Princes. However, five of those goals have came through Mbappe and with the 22-year-old’s fitness under question it will be a huge ask for Pochettino’s side if he is unavailable for selection. In contrast, Guardiola’s side have won all five of their Champions League home games this season and have only conceded two goals in those games.
Phil Foden will be hoping to replicate his heroics at the Westfalenstadion against Borussia Dortmund as the youngster scored a stunning goal to wrap the tie up for City. The 20-year-old now has three goals in this season’s Champions League and will be aiming to mark his stamp on the game as he did at Paris.
28 April 2021 – PSG 1-2 Man City – Champions League
12 April 2016 – Man City 1-0 PSG – Champions League
6 April 2016 – PSG 2-2 Man City – Champions League
3 December 2008 – Man City 0-0 PSG – UEFA Cup
PSG have still not beaten Manchester City in their history, however, what a time to do so Tuesday would be. They absolutely have to win to fair any hope of progressing through to the final of this season’s Champions League.
