Manchester City vs PSG Predictions and Betting Tips
The return leg is the UCL semifinals is set to be the main football attraction with Man City and PSG going head-to-head this Tuesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
It really was a tale of two halves in the Parc des Princes with City eventually emerging victors. A PSG-dominated first half saw them lead at halftime via a well-placed header from Marquinhos. However, City came into the second half keen on turning it around and they did exactly that via goals from De Bruyne and Mahrez.
A spot in the final up for grabs
Man City would make history if they manage to progress through as it would be the first time they compete in a UCL final. They pretty much have one hand on the premier league trophy with that 2-0 win against Crystal Palace at the weekend. As such, a loss for Man United in their next game confirms the Cityzens as champions.
Les Parisiens are looking to make it through to back-to-back UCL finals following that spectacle against Bayern Munich last year, which they lost. Although they managed to get their revenge in the quarterfinals stage, they still have a lot to do if they’re going to play in the UCL final this season. With regards to their domestic league, they still trail Lille by a single point with just three league games to go.
Man City vs PSG Team News
City head into this game with all of their players fully fit. PSG, on the other hand, would be without Bernat who is out injured, and Gueye who is suspended following his red card in the first leg. It is also to be noted that there are major doubts as to the availability of Kylian Mbappe with the Frenchman struggling with a calf problem.
Man City possible starting XI:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden; Silva
PSG possible starting XI:
Navas; Bakker, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Florenzi; Danilo, Verratti; Di Maria, Neymar, Draxler; Icardi
Man City vs PSG Prediction: 2-1
Those two away goals are expected to give the Cityzens a huge confidence boost and given that they don’t give away a lot at home, it’s going to be tough 90 minutes for their opponents. What’s more, they still haven’t lost in the Champions League this season and given that they would need to lose for them not to qualify, it’s tough to see that happening.
