Paris Saint-Germain seeks vengeance in Champions League Group A when they will host Manchester City on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. Both sides had met last in the previous season’s semi-finals, where Pep Guardiola’s men won both games to end the Parisiens’ European dream for another year. Here is everything you need to know about PSG vs Manchester City football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
Idrissa Gueye is now available after he missed the 1-1 draw with Club Bruges due to a ban, on the other hand, Angel Di Maria is suspended.
Leo Messi and Marco Verratti’s fitness are doubtful but both are expected to be included in the matchday squad.
Sergio Ramos remains out for PSG, but Layvin Kurzawa, Colin Dagba, and Juan Bernat have all returned to training.
In Saturday’s 1-0 win over Chelsea, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, and John Stones were all fit enough to play, with the former pair starting at Stamford Bridge.
For the first time this season, Stones could replace Laporte in City’s starting lineup.
Zack Steffen was also named to the bench in the capital following a bout with COVID-19.
