Manchester City vs Paris Saint Germain: Prediction and Betting Tips
Manchester City on the verge of first CL final
After losing in the Semi-final of the FA Cup and hence losing the chance of a quadruple, Pep Guardiola and his team won their first trophy of the season after beating Tottenham in the EFL cup final. The Citizens need just one win or if Manchester United loses to Liverpool on Sunday they will be crowned as 2020/21 Premier League champions.
In the first leg, Manchester City went down in the first half 1-0 but came back in the second half with two goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez. Guardiola’s defense completely neutralized the danger of Mbappe and Neymar. The Citizens dominated the possession of the ball as they always do with 57% and 705 passes. City had 11 goal attempts, which is a lot considering they are playing on the road but when did that stop Pep’s teams from dominating!
Paris Saint Germain aiming to maintain their away record
PSG will be encouraged by the fact that they have just one defeat in five away matches in the Champions League this season beating Barcelona in the Camp Nou on their way in the group stages. Mauricio Pocchetino didn’t have answers for the Manchester City attack in Paris as they have to improve their scoring from many attempts at goal they are having as they scored just one of their 11 attempts in Parc des Princes in the first leg.
Pocchetino has concerns over his star player Mbappe’s availability for this match. The French international didn’t play in PSG’s last win in the Ligue 1 win against Lens. Les Parisiens have won their last ten away matches in all competitions including wins against Manchester United, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich which shows how dangerous they can be on the road.
- 50% of Manchester City’s all matches in the Champions League have seen both teams score
- In all of PSG’s away matches in the Champions League this season both teams scored
- Two or more goals were scored in Manchester City’s last six games
- Two or more goals were scored in PSG’s six of seven matches
Manchester City vs Paris Saint Germain Prediction
Pep Guardiola’s team has been one of the most consistent teams in Europe this season. They have no defeats in the Champions League. Just four defeats in the Premier League and one in the EFL cup. They go into this match as top favorites and have scored regularly in their recent matches.
PSG have to win by two goals. They did beat Barcelona 4-1 in Nou Camp but City are much better than Barca defensively. PSG as well have been scoring regularly in their recent matches as we saw in their stats.
We predict both teams will score in this match
