Manchester City will take a one-goal lead in their Champions League semi-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain tonight as Pep Guardiola’s side look to reach the competition’s final for the first time.
Second-half goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez gave City a stunning comeback in Paris in last week’s first leg, after Marquinhos gave the French side a deserved first-half lead at the Parc of the Princes.
PSG, finalists beaten in last season’s competition, will look to coach Mauricio Pochettino for inspiration after the Argentina coach knocked City out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals with Tottenham Hotspur in 2019.
The Parisians are also looking to win their first European title, the winners of tonight’s draw against Chelsea or Real Madrid in the Istanbul final on May 29.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of tonight’s game.
When is it?
The match will start at 8:00 p.m. GMT on Tuesday, May 4.
How can I watch?
The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 7:00 p.m. BT Sport subscribers can also watch on the BT Sport app and website.
What is the news of the team?
Manchester City have no new injury issues. Forward Sergio Agueror returned to the starting lineup against Crystal Palace on Saturday after sustaining a knee injury.
Kylian Mbappe has been a doubt for the visitors after injuring his calf, and Mauro Icardi could replace him in the starting lineup. Right-back Colin Dagba suffered an ankle injury against Lens but was not supposed to play, with Idrissa Gueye suspended after receiving a red card for fouling Ilkay Gundogan last week.
Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden
Paris Saint-Germain: Navas; Florenzi, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Diallo; Parades, Herrera, Verratti; Neymar, Icardi, Di Maria
Manchester City: 4/6
Both teams gave us a glimpse of their strengths and weaknesses in the first leg, which leaves the decision maker finely tuned. City have the advantage and will be able to play at their own pace, while PSG will need Mbappe to have a bigger impact than they did in Paris last week. The experience of going through a tough 45 minutes to clinch victory will do City good, however, and they’ll be confident they’ve already survived the worst that PSG have to offer. Manchester City 2-1 PSG (City wins 4-2 overall)
