In what looks set to be a heavyweight showdown on Wednesday night, Manchester City will welcome PSG to the Etihad for their penultimate Champions League meeting.
Manchester City
Starting with the hosts, marking their return from the international break over the weekend, Manchester City will be desperate to keep up that momentum when they turn their attention back to Champions League duties. Putting on a thumping display at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola’s side breezed their way to a 3-0 romp against Everton, a result that firmly keeps them in the Premier League title hunt. Now with their sights set on trying to clinch top spot in Group A as they enter their penultimate European showdown on Wednesday night, the former Bayern Munich boss has seen his side bounce back from their October wobble. Winning each of their last three matchups across all formats, including a 4-1 win against Club Brugge earlier in the month, City should also be boosted by their European record on home soil. Guardiola’s men have won each of their last nine Champions League contests at the Etihad, a run that stems back to November 2019.

Team News

After returning a positive COVID-19 test last week, Kevin De Bruyne will once again be missing on Wednesday night as he continues to isolate.

Likewise, along with an injured Ferran Torress, it also appears that Jack Grealish will not be given the green light in time to feature at the Etihad.
PSG
As for the visitors, while PSG might have seen Lille stunningly snatch their Ligue 1 crown last season, the French giants do appear to have refound their feet this time around. Marking their return from the international break with their own flurry on home soil, Mauricio Pochettino’s men landed a 3-1 win against Nimes and they will be looking to lay down another marker here. Already storming their way to a commanding 11-point buffer at the top of the Ligue 1 table, the former Tottenham boss also finds his side tipped as a standout pick to claim their first Champions League crown. Within touching distance of booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s tournament, PSG will now be looking to improve on their recent European record outside of the French capital. Including a 2-0 defeat at the Etihad when they made the trip to Manchester back in May, they have failed to win any of their last three European fixtures on the road.

Team News

In what would be a real boost for PSG, it appears that summer arrival Sergio Ramos could be able to make his debut on Wednesday night.

However, with Gianluigi Donnarumma ruled out, Keylor Navas will start between the sticks in Manchester.
Key Factors to Consider

When the two sides last faced off in the reverse fixture on September 29th, PSG picked up a 2-0 victory on home soil.
Manchester City have won each of their last three matchups across all formats by an aggregate score of 9-1.
Likewise, the Sky Blues have won each of their last nine Champions League contests at the Etihad, a run that stems back to November 2019.
PSG have failed to win any of their last three Champions League contests on foreign soil, including a 2-0 defeat against Man City back in May.
Each of PSG’s last four matchups across all formats have finished with both teams finding the net.

Conclusion

Suffering a 2-0 loss when they made the trip out to Paris back in September, there is no doubt that Manchester City will be seeking some revenge on Wednesday night. Picking up some perfect momentum over the weekend as they cruised their way to a 3-0 romp against Everton on home soil, the Sky Blues have managed to find their feet in the final third. With their sights set on clinching top spot in Group A, the midweek hosts will still know that they face a stern test at the Etihad. Looking to cause what many would bill as an upset on foreign soil, the French giants appear to be cruising their way back to the Ligue 1 title this season. With a star-studded attacking line-up at their disposal on Wednesday, we could have a lively affair on our hands. With each of PSG’s last four matchups finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
