Manchester City v Paris Saint-Germain Predictions and Preview
Pep Guardiola is likely to go with the same eleven that secured a memorable victory in France. The Spaniard does not field a traditional centre-forward with Phil Foden, De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva sharing the false nine responsibilities.
Only Ilkay Gundogan has scored more goals than the young Mancunian who will feel vindicated for trusting his manager and not going on loan. Foden has dislodged Raheem Sterling from the side and there is a real possibility the Stockport native also gets the nod ahead of his team-mate at international level in June. The 20-year-old is 7/4 to net anytime and Silva can be found at 13/5.

|Over 4.5 goals||3/1||Offer|
Gundogan is 5/1 to break the deadlock and is in the form of his life. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder almost singlehandedly pulled City away from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester in the winter and is a strong contender for individual gongs once the votes are cast. Mahrez and Sterling are 6/4 and 7/4, respectively, to notch anytime and the hosts are 1/7 to qualify outright.
Gundogan is 5/1 to break the deadlock and is in the form of his life. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder almost singlehandedly pulled City away from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester in the winter and is a strong contender for individual honours once the votes are cast. Wing wizard Mahrez and Sterling are 6/4 and 7/4, respectively, to bag anytime and the hosts are 1/7 to qualify outright.
The Parisians were left reeling after failing to make their domination count during the first-half of the encounter in France. Kylian Mbappe had a rare off night but the future Ballon d’Or winner has fond memories of playing in Manchester after scoring for Monaco at the Etihad in 2017.
The striker has struck on 33 occasions this term and is 13/2 to open proceedings. Partner Neymar was also relatively ineffectual and there is big pressure on the Brazilian to deliver after falling short last season. The ex-Barcelona star is an attractive 8/1 to register first and European success will be a big factor in the attacker extending his stay with the club. PSG are 9/2 to make the showpiece event in Istanbul.
One to watch for Manchester City: Sergio Aguero has cut a frustrated figure on the sidelines but still has plenty to offer. The Blues all-time leading marskman is 15/4 to hit the last effort.
One to watch for Paris Saint-Germain: Mauro Icardi will perform a similar role after the break and is lethal in and around the six-yard box. The old Inter skipper is 7/1 in the same market.
Long shot: This year feels different for City. The Blues have a volatile relationship with UEFA but the lifting of their FFP ban has galvanised the club and everything has clicked ever since. A 3-0 outcome is 15/1 and the Premier League champions elect will be favourites for the trophy irrespective of the opposition.
