With a huge win on the road against the Parisians in the first leg, the Citizens surely have the upper hand this Tuesday.
Pep Guardiola’s men are on blistering form, and are determined to conclude their season with the coveted European crown.
They have one leg into the final, and with the opportunity to lock horns with either the injury-depleted Los Blancos, or the inexperienced Chelsea in the final, chances are high for the EPL club to be decorated European champions.
They have been scoring goals at will all through this campaign, and have doled out wins in unbelievable consistency. They also have an impressive lead at the top of the English top flight, and therefore could give all their attention to the UCL.
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are locked in a title-race with three other clubs for the Ligue 1 crown, and they are already trailing in aggregate scoreline against the former English champions.
On top of that, the Parisians also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years, and they also have a poor track record in European competitions.
By the looks of things, expect a Manchester City victory this Tuesday.
Manchester City vs Paris Saint-Germain: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 1-2 win on the road for Pep’s men.
- They have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in two of the previous three meetings, and have kept clean sheets in two of the last four clashes.
- The Ligue 1 club are yet to find the back of the net at this venue.
Manchester City vs Paris Saint-Germain Prediction
Guardiola’s men have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival, and especially so at this stadium. They have also won 32 of their past 35 overall fixtures, and have lost just twice at home in the past six-month period.
Moreover, they also have two away goals to their name, and this will force Pochettino’s men to find the back of the net at least twice in order to have any chance of progressing. The tactician that Pep is, the Citizens will easily find ways to take advantage of this.
Thus, expect a Manchester City win. However, considering the offensive prowess of the French champions, expect the guests to score at least once at the Etihad.
