PSG and Manchester City are set to compete against in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday at the Parc des Princes. Les Parisiens advanced to the final four on away goals against defending champions Bayern Munich, while Man City beat Borussia Dortmund 4-2 on aggregate to snap their recent quarter-final hoodoo. Know our expert’s guess on PSG vs Man City semi-final prediction and lineup.
PSG lineup: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar; Mbappe
Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Metz saw Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, and Rafinha on the bench but only the former will start here.
PSG’s only reported injury will be Juan Bernat for Manchester City’s visit.
With Idrissa Gueye set to start alongside Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti in midfield, Pochettino could opt for a 4-3-3 formation once more.
In such a scenario, PSG’s manager could choose Kylian Mbappe to lead the charge, with Moise Kean, Julian Draxler, and Mauro Icardi serving as backups.
Man City lineup: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Silva, Foden
For the midweek trip to Paris, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has a completely healthy squad to choose from after Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero have made the team for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.
While Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, and Ferran Torres are among those pushing for a place in the starting lineup Ederson, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Gabriel Jesus were all used as substitutes on Sunday and are expected to debut.
PSG vs man City semi-finals Prediction
PSG will be hoping that wins over Saint-Etienne and Angers have signaled the start of a better run at the Parc des Princes, but Man City are a better team than most of their domestic rivals.
Guardiola’s side could and should have scored more against Spurs at Wembley, but Neymar and Mbappe – assuming he is passed fit – are competent of breaking almost any European defense, and we can see a high-scoring game on the Etihad turf leaving everything to play for. Nevertheless, City is more than capable of earning a victory in Paris on Wednesday night.
