Manchester City vs PSG Latest Odds
Having won five out of five home games in this season’s competition, City are 13/20 (1.65) favourites with bet365 to complete the job by coming out on top here.
However, Les Parisiens have won six of their last seven Champions League matches on the road and can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) to get themselves back into the tie with a big win.
Just one of the hosts’ last 19 home fixtures has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them settling for a stalemate in this one.
Manchester City vs PSG Team News
With a fully fit squad to choose from, Guardiola’s is set to bring the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Joao Cancelo, and Ilkay Gundogan back into the line-up after resting them for Saturday’s Premier League win over Crystal Palace.
Kylian Mbappe will face a late fitness test after sitting out Saturday’s win over Lens with a calf injury, while Idrissa Gueye is suspended and Juan Bernat definitely ruled out.
Manchester City vs PSG Preview
The Citizens’ hopes of finally reaching an elusive Champions League final seemed to be fading away when they went in 1-0 down at the break in Paris and struggling to get a foothold in the game.
Instead, they came out in the second half and put in a dominant display that earned two goals and saw Mauricio Pochettino’s team committing numerous fouls in frustration.
This has actually been a recurring theme throughout this season’s Champions League campaign, where City have scored 16 of their 23 goals in the second 45 – hitting the net prior to half-time just once in their three most recent matches.
Manchester City vs PSG Tips and Predictions
With a comfortable lead to protect, odds of 20/21 (1.95) seem like solid value on City ensuring goals are at a premium until at least the second half against a PSG team potentially missing Mbappe.
