Today is finally the day for the second leg clash between Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City. In what is arguably the biggest game of this season's Champions league, both teams will aim to become the first finalist for this season's finals, scheduled to take place later on this month in Istanbul. As we all know, Manchester City are coming into this game with the advantage, a 2-1 away win at Parc Des Princes last week. Pep Guardiola's men were able to overturn a first half loss to get the win courtesy of goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.
For PSG, they will be sweating over Kylian Mbappe's fitness ahead of kickoff. The Frenchman youngster has had some injury scares in recent weeks and could possibly miss out on tonight's game, though he did travel with the team to Manchester. For City, Pep Guardiola has no significant injury worries. His team is fit and as an added bonus, he rested a few players over the weekend in the win over Newcastle. This season is the first time Manchester City are making it into the Champions league semifinals and right now, Pep Guardiola will be eyeing a finals spot.
AAs far as the odds go, PSG are the slight underdogs because of Man City's excellent home form. This does not however mean that Pep Guardiola's men are unbeatable at home as Manchester United have done so few months ago. PSG stars like Neymar and Verratti have said that the French side will do everything possible to make a comeback tonight at the Etihad. If they are able to make a comeback, it will be the second consecutive seasons that PSG is playing in the UCL finals after their loss to Bayern Munich last season.
