Match preview for Manchester City vs Paris Saint-Germain FC

Pep Guardiola’s team won the first leg against PSG and are very close to their first ever Champions League final. On Tuesday evening the Citizens will start the second leg of the semifinals with a 2-1 advantage, after their win last week in the French capital. 

Manchester City are close to making history in the Champions League, but they haven’t neglected the Premier League and continued their excellent form there by winning 2-0 away against Crystal Palace, a win that brought them even closer to the Premier League title. City has five wins and one draw in their last 6 official games and an interesting fact is that five of City’s last eight games ended with the same scoreline 2-1, but only one time in favour of their opponents. Their last 12 games had between 0 and three goals scored.  Another interesting fact is that City hasn’t recorded any draws since December 15 2020, when they only managed a 1-1 in the Premier League against West Bromwich Albion.  Without a doubt though the team led by Pep Guardiola will be more than happy with a draw against PSG, a result that will take them to their first ever Champions League final. 

If Manchester City are very close to celebrating the league title Paris St. Germain are in a very tight and exciting title race against Lille. Last weekend Mauricio Pochettino’s team managed a 2-1 win against Lens and they accumulated 75 points, but they are still one point behind the leader Lille with only three games left in the season.  PSG has shown a lot of defensive problems this season and this is reflected in their recent form as well, as they conceded at least a goal in 9 of their last 10 games.  Unlike their opponents their games are usually very spectacular as there have been 20 goals scored in PSG’s last 5 official games. A reason to hope for PSG who clearly are the underdogs for reaching the final is their away form, their last defeat away from home was on January 31 , 2-3 against Lorient, and in this time they managed some amazing performances away like the 4-1 win against Barcelona at Camp Nou or the 3-2 win against Bayern at Allianz Arena. 

City managed to dominate the Premier League this season but even more than that they are also undefeated in the Champions League so far. The Citizens are currently on a 6 match winning streak in UCL, their longest winning streak in the most important club competition in Europe.  Also City never lost qualification to the next round after winning the first leg. This happened no less than 12 times for the hosts on Tuesday in an UEFA competition.  Last year PSG reached their first ever Champions League final so we could say they have a moral advantage against City. The Parisians will hope to overturn the first leg deficit especially especially if they look at Kylian Mbappe’s form. The world champion scored 8 goals so far in the Champions League, all of them in PSG’s last 6 games.  Pochettino lost 11 of the 19 head to head games against Guardiola. The Argentinian managed to win only three times, but one of those times is really memorable, the win in the UCL quarterfinals, 1-0 and 3-4 when he was Tottenham’s manager.
