The top two favorite teams in the UEFA Champions League will meet each other on Tuesday night. Paris Saint-Germain will host Manchester City at Parc des Princes. Both clubs have a strong squad. Moreover, PSG and Manchester City have done a great job in the summer transfer window. The fans from both clubs are eagerly waiting for the match.
Paris Saint-Germain is one of the strongest clubs in the football world. They are financially well off. That is why they can sign the best players in the world. They have signed Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gini Wijnaldum, and Achraf Hakimi in the last summer transfer window. Undoubtedly, Paris Saint-Germain have one of the strongest squad in the UEFA Champions League. Despite having so many stars in the team, Paris Saint-Germain could not win the first game in the Champions League against Club Brugge! They scored only one goal and conceded one. So, the match against Manchester City will be a massive test for PSG.
Paris Saint-Germain have never beaten Manchester City in their previous five meetings. They have lost three matches and drawn two. Moreover, PSG failed to keep a clean sheet against Man City in the Champions League.
Manchester City, on the other hand, are in great form in the UEFA Champions League. They scored six goals against RB Leipzig in the first leg of the Champions League. Manchester City also beat Chelsea in their last game in the English Premier League. Furthermore, Manchester City midfield maestro Kavin de Brunye is back from injury. So, it will be difficult for Paris Saint-Germain to beat Manchester City in the upcoming match.
Paris Saint-Germain’s new signing, Leo Messi did not play in the last match against Montpellier in League 1. He is still in doubt for the clash against Man City. But PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino will wait until the last minute for Lionel Messi. Sergio Ramos and Marco Verratti are also less likely to play against Man City. But Layvin Kurzawa, Juan Bernat, Colin Dagba, and Gueye have returned to the training ground.
Meanwhile, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte are back in the team. Laporte played the last match against Chelsea. John Stones was in the squad in this match. So, both defenders are available for the upcoming clash with PSG. In addition, Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden played in the match against Chelsea.
