Match Predictions and Betting Odds
The head-to-head stats indicate that Manchester City have won all of their five meetings against Paris Saint Germain in the UEFA Champions League, however, this record has been blemished with a 2-0 defeat in their most recent meeting back in September. Manchester City will be eager to put this result behind them and get back to playing pragmatic and attacking football, something that Guardiola infuses into the team that he manages.
Coming into this matchup, Manchester City have won 3 out of their last 5 matches (2 losses), PSG have been undefeated in their past 5 matches with 3 three wins (2 draws). City’s 2-0 win against Manchester United was a convincing one, whereas PSG’s 3-2 win over Bordeaux was a much more closely contested encounter. The fact that PSG have remained winless in their last three away fixtures in the UEFA Champions League will also play on the minds of the players as they face tournament favourites, Manchester City.
