Manchester City have never lost to PSG, but will the tradition continue on April 28 – the answer will be found in the forecast. What to expect from the meeting?
PSG found themselves in a very difficult group of the Champions League, where the Parisians competed with Leipzig, Manchester United and Basaksehir. Not without difficulty, the French champion got a ticket to the playoffs, beating the third Manchester United by only four points. The first rival in the playoffs was Barcelona, the result of the confrontation with which was decided already in Spain (4: 1).
In the return meeting, PSG drew 1: 1 with the “blue garnet” and moved to the quarterfinals. The rival of the Parisians was Bayern, which by the time of the match in Munich had lost many key players. As in the confrontation with Barcelona, PSG did not postpone the issue of reaching the semifinals on the back burner and beat the current trophy holder with a score of 3: 2 on his field.
The 0-1 defeat in the return leg left Bayern behind, and PSG found themselves in the semifinals of the tournament for the second time in a row. As for the French championship, the “red-blue” is not doing well there – the second line and one point behind the leader of “Lille”.
The Parisians also have a chance to win the French Cup – in early May they will play against Montpellier in the semifinals of the tournament. Injured Rafinha and Juan Bernat will miss today’s match. Also questionable is the participation of Kilian Mbappe.
Manchester City, unlike their current rival, did not experience any problems in the Champions League group – Pep Guardiola’s team proved to be much stronger than Porto, Olympiacos and Marseille, confidently winning the group. In the 1/8 finals of the tournament, the “townspeople” did not experience the slightest problems with Borussia from Mönchengladbach, beating the opponent with a score of 4: 0 on aggregate.
Not much more problems were presented by Manchester City Borussia Dortmund – in the first match at home, the British beat the bumblebees with a score of 2: 1. Away, the “townspeople” also played to win and won it with a similar score, confidently stepping into the semifinals of the tournament.
In the Premier League, Manchester City looks more than confident – the Citizens are in the lead in the table, ahead of the second Manchester United by 10 points. At the end of last week, Manchester City won the trophy – they managed to beat Tottenham 1-0 in the League Cup final.
After the fight, the Manchester City mentor focused on the importance of winning the League Cup, which, in his opinion, could be a catalyst for success on the international stage.
PSG have already left behind the tournament such rivals as Barcelona and Bayern, but today the Parisians have to face a much more powerful force. In contrast to the previous rivals of the French club, Manchester City have no staffing problems, the townspeople have gained excellent shape and are definitely betting on winning the tournament.
In terms of the game, Manchester City looks much stronger than PSG, the townspeople have an advantage in face-to-face meetings, they, in our opinion, should be given preference.
We believe that guests have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) at Manchester City. In bookmaker 1xBet, such an outcome can be found with odds 1.69
Manchester City have a very powerful attack that almost never fails. It is obvious that PSG’s not the most reliable defense will face problems and are unlikely to be able to win back to zero. However, PSG is also strong in attack and is quite capable of scoring at home, so it makes sense to count on a scoring extravaganza in this meeting.
Our second bet will be over three goals total. This bet can be placed for 2.21
