Manchester City vs PSG | Wednesday 24th November 2021, 20:00 | BT Sport
- Man City have won 10 of their last 12 Champions League matches.
- Manchester a city have scored 2+ goals in 10 of their last 12 Champions League games.
- PSG have won just 2 of their last 6 away games.
Arguably the glamour tie of Matchweek 5 comes at the Etihad as moneybags Man City and PSG meet. The reverse meeting actually ended in victory for Les Parisiens and they’ll take great heart from that despite being second best on the balance of play.
Since that game it’s not been all rosey. They lost to Rennes and dropped points against Marseille and Leipzig which leaves them a point behind City in the current standings. That in turn means a win here for Pep Guardiola’s charges would see them top the group with a game to spare.
City have bounced back from a shock defeat to Crystal Palace a few weeks ago by seeing off Manchester United, Club Brugge and Everton with the minimum of fuss. Their process is exceptional and although PSG have some extremely talented individuals, City have a collective that is greater than the sum of its parts. The compound effects from having the same manager building his philosophy at the club are there for all to see and you fear for a PSG defence that hasn’t looked at an elite level for a while.
It’s hard to discount Neymar, Messi and M’bappe from causing some problems though and they may well get on the scoresheet in what should be an entertaining clash. City look short enough in the main markets but you can get 2/1 on them to win and concede which could be where the value is at on Wednesday night.
