In the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final 2, PSG face-off with Manchester City. PSG are winless against Manchester City in their last 3 encounters and thus City would look to make early in-roads in the game. City recently won the Carabao Cup and thus they would be high on confidence too. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM and promises to be an exciting one.
PSG are presently second in the Ligue 1 and are coming on the back off a 3-1 victory against Metz. Kylian Mbappe scored 2 goals and Mauro Icardi scored one goal in that game. PSG had won their Champions League quarter final against Bayern Munich on a very close note. They were tied 3-3 with Bayern but won because of away goals. Kylian Mbappe is the marquee player of this squad as he had scored 2 goals in the quarter final leg 1 too. He should be an automatic inclusion in your fantasy side.
Manchester City under Pep Guardiola have been a dominating force. They won the Carabao Cup beating Tottenham Hotspurs 1-0. Aymeric Laporte had scored for City and had sealed off the game. City are also in the top of the Premier League table and look firm trophy winners. As they have an enviable record against PSG, there are high chances they can qualify for their maiden final appearance in the Champions League.
John Stones might be playing in this game as his suspension is domestic. Kevin De Bruyne played a crucial role in the Carabao Cup final and is most likely to play in this game too.
Kylian Mbappe’s participation is uncertain but PSG manager Pochettino has given signs that he might be fully fit before the game
