The first leg didn’t disappoint as PSG dominated before the break and City struck back after half time, though it’s the latter that hold the advantage after a pair of crucial away goals.
Pep Guardiola’s men are strong favourites to reach the final now, though you cannot write off PSG and the hosts are remarkably short to win this game considering the quality of their visitors.
A major factor in that price is the potential absence of Kylian Mbappe, who appears touch and go to make the starting line-up having missed the Parisian’s weekend clash with Lens.
Although the French superstar was rather subdued in the first leg, his loss would of course be a monumental blow, though PSG still have Mauro Icardi waiting in the wings to link up with the likes of Neymar and Angel Di Maria and won’t be devoid of attacking threat.
Either way, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are sure to go on the offensive with away goals absolutely imperative. Even if the game were to open in cautious fashion, it will inevitably open up at some stage with both teams attack minded, so expect each to enjoy a spell of sustained pressure.
Both Teams To Score (Yes)
Whereas PSG are also without Juan Bernat (injury) and Idrissa Gueye (suspension), the team news is much better for Man City, whose domestic lead enabled them to rest the likes of star performers Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden amongst others at the weekend.
Crystal Palace were dismissed 2-0 to bring City’s record to 32 wins from 35 appearances, though it was just a second clean sheet in eight appearances and they’ll do well to keep Neymar and company quiet for a full 90 minutes.

PSG are likewise stronger in attack than they are in defence. The French outfit have registered just the single clean sheet in 10 matches now, in a 5-0 rout of Angers, while both teams have scored in six of their seven Champions League games since the start of December.
In fact, away to the best sides they’ve faced in Europe since 2016/17 – Barcelona, Bayern, Real Madrid, Man Utd, Liverpool, Dortmund, Leipzig, Arsenal and Napoli – both teams have scored in 12 of 13 road trips.
Man City To Win 2-1
Man City only conceded once in the group stages, at home to Porto, while they kept clean sheets in both legs of their first knockout tie with Borussia M’Gladbach.
However, they’ve since recorded a trio of 2-1 victories over Dortmund (twice) and then PSG, suggesting that the better sides can have some joy in the final third against them.
Up against the best teams they’ve faced since the start of last season – Atalanta, Real Madrid, Lyon, Porto, Dortmund and PSG – both teams have netted in nine of 10 fixtures.
