PSG – Manchester City 28-04-2021
PSG meet Manchester City in 1st leg of the semi-final of the Champions League. This match will be played on Wednesday in Paris at 22:00 East European Time.
PSG beat Bayern Munich, although in the second match the Bavarians were close to a turnaround, as the overall result was 3: 3, and Bayern won in Paris with 1: 0 and despite the great desire failed to reach the semifinals. We should also mention the many omissions of the Parisians in this match, and here they should come out much more concentrated, as Manchester City has shown this season that it is one of the strongest teams at the moment. PSG defeated Metz last week and is now preparing for the big clash with the British at home. Pochettino’s players are 2nd in the standings of a point from Lille, who are leaders, and in 3rd place in Monaco, which is two points behind the leader Lille. The ranking at the moment shows that nothing has been decided yet and probably these will be the 3 teams that will fight for the title in France. Kaylor Navas and Marco Verratti will most likely take part in this match, as well as Marquinhos and Abdu Diallo, who may be included in the first team. Neymar and Mbape will be the main scorers for the PSG team in this match.
Manchester City has done very well this season in the English Premier League and has already secured the title, and will now be able to concentrate on the remaining matches of the Champions League. The team is close to the final, so they will not fight on several fronts, like their opponent, but will concentrate mainly in the semifinals of the Champions League and will try to eliminate the French. City has great players and a big bench, and Guardiola will be able to rely again on Mares, Fallon, De Bruyne, and others. For City, John Stone is expected to return, and Ederson will be at the door of the English.
Possible line ups PSG: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar; Mbappe
Possible line ups Man.City: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Silva, Foden
