Manchester City are in the midst of the world’s most difficult away trip in football. Pep Guardiola’s team defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and now face off with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League at the Parc des Prince on Tuesday. The Cityzens will follow up the match with a trip to Anfield to play Premier League leaders Liverpool. By the end of the week, Manchester City could be atop Champions League Group A and the Premier League.

PSG vs Manchester City Match Preview

Paris Saint-Germain head into the fixture atop the Ligue 1 standings. The Parisians are coming off of a 2-0 win at home against Montpellier at the weekend to set up this Tuesday night fixture with Manchester City at the Parc des Princes.

Mauricio Pochettino has experience defeating Manchester City in the Champions League. As the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Pochettino’s team eliminated Manchester City from the tournament in 2018-19 and later qualified for the final against Liverpool.

Les Rouge et Bleu could only manage a 1-1 draw on Champions League Group A matchday 1 with Club Brugge. Every argument made about playing Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar together proved to be correct. There was a lack of defending as the trio spent a lot of time walking around the halfway line. Will Manchester City get their second win of the three-game road trip or will PSG’s top trio shine on Tuesday?

PSG vs Manchester City Betting Odds

 

 

Since Neymar was heavily criticised by both Brazilian and French media following a poor start to the season, the forward has picked up his play. Messi is not guaranteed to play on Tuesday night following a bone bruise. The Argentine has played just three times since arriving from Barcelona and has failed to score or assist a goal in 190 minutes of football. Messi is healing a bone bruise which has kept him sidelined lately.

 

Questions remain over the defensive capabilities of Paris Saint-Germain. They need to be aware of the attacking threat Guardiola’s team presents. Manchester City defeated RB Leipzig on matchday 1 of Group A by a scoreline of 6-3. Since an opening day 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur away, Manchester City are unbeaten in seven straight games.

Sportsbooks’ best betting odds on PSG to defeat Manchester City and claim a first win in Group A are at 2/1. Manchester City’s best betting odds to win at full-time against the Cityzens are at 11/8. PSG drew their first game of the Champions League 1-1. The best betting odds for a draw between PSG and Man City on Tuesday night are at 27/10.

PSG vs Manchester City Team News

At the time of writing, there is no guarantee that Lionel Messi will play. After missing the team’s last two matches with a bone bruise, Messi could make the squad, but only on the bench. Angel Di Maria is suspended for the game. Meanwhile, Neymar is likely to play on the left side of the attack with Kylian Mbappe down the middle.

In the game versus Club Brugge, Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe should no interest in defending. If the trio do the same against Manchester City, then it is likely to be a long night for the Parisians. Pochettino is likely to have midfielder Marco Verratti and centre-back Sergio Ramos available. Ramos will be interesting to watch to see if the ageing, often-injured defender, can keep pace with Manchester City’s attackers. Layvin Kurzawa, Juan Bernat, Idrissa Gueye and Colin Dagba are back from injury and suspension.

Manchester City defenders Aymeric Laporte and John Stones are in line to start the game. Laporte played with Ruben Dias in defence at the weekend versus Chelsea and should ultimately keep his place. Oleksandr Zinchenko and Ilkay Gundogan are both nearing returns from injury. Rodri may not be fit while Raheem Sterling could get a start.
