Paris Saint-Germain will face Manchester City in a vital Group A encounter tonight. PSG cannot stand to waste any more points in the competition as they faced a surprising draw with Club Brugge. Live updates of this match will be available on SkySports.com and the Sky Sports App at 6.30 p.m. on Tuesday.
PSG Vs. Man City-Preview, And Statistics
Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City will meet for the sixth time in this match, with the French side still seeking their first victory. PSG has played more games in the European competition against Juventus than against Man City and did not win one of them. On the other hand, Man City is unbeaten in their past ten UEFA Champions League away games, and they didn’t lose a game in the competition apart from the one in England in December 2017.
Man City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will be sidelined until the next international break after suffering an injury against Southampton earlier this month. Man City’s only other significant absentee is Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is now suffering from a calf injury.
Pep Guardiola was encouraged by the recovery of Aymeric Laporte and Rodri from injury against Chelsea. Still, he must determine whether to limit their minutes ahead of the Liverpool match at the weekend.
John Stones was back on the substitutes’ bench at Stamford Bridge and may debut in Paris. Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez came on late against Chelsea and will compete for starting spots.

After taking part in a training session, Lionel Messi is set to play for Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday. The Argentine attacker missed two Ligue 1 games due to a damaged knee, but he did not look in pain on Monday. PSG coach Pochettino indicated that Marco Verratti, the Italian midfielder who missed the last four games due to a knee injury, will most likely participate in today’s match.

The Final prediction
The last time we saw Man City on the field, they were struggling against RB Leipzig with the defense. As PSG knows they can’t afford to lose another match in this tournament, they will probably try to break Man City’s defense. But Man City’s fine win against Chelsea makes the fans tilt in their favor, so we think they have a better chance of winning today’s game.
