UCL semi-finals – PSG vs Man City prediction and lineups

On Wednesday, the two continental giants Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City will meet in the first leg of their semi-final at the Parc des Princes. One of the club’s hopes of winning the Champions League for the first time will be thwarted. Here’s everything to know about PSG vs Man City pre-match updates including prediction and lineups.

Both teams had successful domestic results over the weekend, with City’s being even more notable, as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup final, while PSG defeated Metz 3-1 in Ligue 1. In the quarter-finals, PSG defeated Bayern Munich while Manchester City advanced by winning over Borussia Dortmund. 

Team news

PSG lineup: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar; Mbappe

Juan Bernat is the only reported injury absence in Mauricio Pochettino’s team for Manchester City’s visit on Wednesday.

In Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Metz, Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, and Rafinha were all benched, but only the former will start here.

Pochettino could opt for a 4-3-3 formation once more, with Idrissa Gueye set to start alongside Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti in midfield.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel 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

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has a completely healthy squad to choose from for the midweek trip to Paris. Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero have made the team for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

John Stones missed the 1-0 victory over Tottenham due to a suspension and could replace Aymeric Laporte in the defence, despite his winning goal at Wembley.

Ederson, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Gabriel Jesus were all used as substitutes on Sunday and are expected to debut, while Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, and Ferran Torres are among those pushing for a place in the starting lineup.

PSG vs Man City Prediction

Manchester City is more than capable of earning a victory in Paris on Wednesday night.

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 is a better team than most of their domestic rivals.

At Wembley, Guardiola’s team could and should have scored more against Spurs, but Neymar and Mbappe are capable of cracking almost any European defense, and we can see a high-scoring game on the Etihad turf leaving everything to play for.

Our Prediction: Paris Saint-Germain 2-3 Manchester City
