PSG v Manchester City: live stream and TV details, how to watch, injury news and predicted teams
Attention turns to the Champions League as Manchester City head to the French capital, hopeful of a win against their main group rivals.
Manchester City travel to the Parc de Princes on Tuesday (8pm) to face group rivals Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
The Citizens are in good spirits after defeating title rivals Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday with Gabriel Jesus scoring the winner.
Opponents PSG meanwhile defeated Montpellier in Ligue One on Saturday night with Idrissa Gueye and Julian Draxler on target.
Now the two turn their attention to European football’s top competition in what should stack up to be one of the best games of the group stages given the resources of both sides.
City are top of the group after beating Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig 6-3 whilst Mauricio Pochettino’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Club Brugge.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the mouthwatering clash between two of world football’s most well-resourced sides.
What’s the latest team news?
For City, they were boosted by the returns of defenders John Stones and Aymeric Laporte with the latter playing the entire match on Saturday.
Oleksandr Zinchenko, who hasn’t played since the win against Leipzig is unlikely to feature due to an injury, as is Ilkay Gundogan with both still recovering from knocks.
Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez were only used as substitutes in the win over Chelsea and will be hopeful of a return to the starting line up, as will Ferran Torres.
They will have to displace Jesus though who will be high on confidence after his recent performance at Stamford Bridge and will be keen to keep his place in leading the line for Guardiola’s side.
Jack Grealish as well in attack is enjoying his start to life at the Etihad and has already embraced the feel of a European night.
What about the opposition?
Lionel Messi was linked with a move to Manchester City two years ago but ultimately ended up joining PSG this summer after a long association with Barcelona.
The draw has given Messi the chance to at least play against City however but he remains a doubt after missing last weekend’s match with a knee problem. The Argentina captain is ‘running again’ but there are question marks whether he’ll feature.
German international Draxler scored on the weekend and if Messi isn’t deemed fit then he would likely deputise in his place.
Summer signing Sergio Ramos is yet to make his debut for the French club since his move from Real Madrid and he is not expected to play. Marco Verratti is another player who looks to miss out after a knee injury.
There is also a key decision in who is between the sticks in the battle between Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas.
PSG (4-3-3): Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes, Herrera; Draxler, Mbappe, Neymar
Manchester City: (4-3-3) :Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo, Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Grealish, Torres, Sterling
