Man City are currently on the top spot of the Group A points table, while, PSG are placed second.
PSG vs Man City Prediction And Odds: Recent Form
On paper, both PSG and City are the best team in recent times. But on footballing terms, the riches of France and England cannot even be compared to the likes of Nottingham Forest and Marseille. Reason? not a single Champions League trophy in their history.
However, PSG and City are getting close to it. PSG reached the 2019-20 Champions League finals but succumbed against Bayern Munich at the finale.
City lost to their English rivals Chelsea in the finals of the 2020-21 Champions League finals. Yet again, both the heavyweights are the favorites to win the Champions League this season alongside Bayern Munich.
There will be very few clubs in the world, except Club Brugge, who will want to face PSG at this moment. The phantasmal trio of Neymar-Messi-Mbappe alongside the likes of Ramos and Di Maria in the side is enough to win the game even before it has started.
However, a certain keeper named Simon Mignolet will seemingly deny all the hype of PSG’s attack as he recently kept the Paris team on par in their CL clash. Yes, Club Brugge, a modest Belgium club, got the better of Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG in their first group stage of the CL 21-22 season. Club Brugge halted the all-star team to a 1-1 draw and definitely made their club and their fans proud.
Man City, on the other end, dominated in their first CL outing of the season. The Blues of Manchester won 6-3 against the German club, RB Leipzig. Pep Guardiola is indeed reaching the end of his career as City’s manager. The Spaniard surely has some unfinished business as the Champions League trophy is still missing from City’s recently modified trophy cabinet.
The upcoming fixture is definitely going to be an interesting battle between the giants of Europe. Pep Guardiola will be up against his prodigy Lionel Messi. Young Jack Grealish will be under pressure to his mettle in front of the likes of Neymar and Mbappe. And besides that, Pochettino has a job to save.
PSG vs Man City Prediction And Odds: Match Predictions
Pep Guardiola’s Man City prevailed over Pochettino’s PSG in their recent CL outings. City won the semi-final fixture in the 2020-21 season and reached the finals. However, PSG is a completely different team this, arguably the best on the paper all over Europe. The addition of Hakimi, Donnaruma, Wijnaldum, and Ramos has upgraded The Parisians by miles.
Despite that, the team and players’ stats do not favor PSG over Man City. PSG will have a home advantage but City with the kind of form they have had recently, they seem to be ahead of PSG in this match.
