Manchester City, PSG in top of the table clash

Seeking to avenge their September defeat at the Parc des Princes, Manchester City welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Etihad Stadium for Wednesday’s Champions League Group A battle.

The hosts currently sit at the summit with nine points to their name, but PSG are only one point behind and will also eye qualification to the next round this week.

Two weeks after putting five past surprise package Club Brugge on their Belgian turf, Man City produced an equally ruthless performance to comfortably dispatch their Group A counterparts in Manchester.

Such a thumping saw this merciless City side surge to the top of the rankings in Group A after PSG were held by RB Leipzig, and Pep Guardiola‘s side will assure themselves of a first-placed finish and a spot in the last 16 with all three points against PSG.

It is now three wins on the bounce in all competitions for Man City heading into the visit of PSG, and they are on an eight-game winning streak at home in the Champions League, but lightning has struck twice in this fixture before.

PSG have historically struggled for a clinical edge at the Etihad, but their recent goalscoring exploits with the famed front three should give some hope.

Neither coach will be satisfied with a point as the race to make the last-16 in Group A goes right down to the wire, but it is difficult to see a clear winner in this battle, and we expect the two sides to play out an enthralling draw.
