Manchester City was not in the most difficult group of the Champions League – definitely, Pep Guardiola’s team was considered the clear favourite of the quartet. The first round only strengthened the Citizens in this status – in their field, they sent six goals into the net of “Leipzig”, but at the same time conceded three goals of their own.
In the away match against PSG, Manchester City was considered the favourites – last season, the Parisians left the tournament in a confrontation with the British. However, this time PSG did not allow the opponent to dominate and scored twice, having managed to win back to zero in defence. The defeat did not hit the ambitions of the Citizens too much – there were two matches with Club Brugge ahead of them.

PSG every year makes very serious purchases in an attempt to achieve success in the Champions League, but the trophy has not yet been won, although the Parisians have some success in this direction. The group to the team of Mauricio Pochettino did not get the most difficult – there is Manchester City, which can take the first line, but the alignment in which Club Brugge or Leipzig, in their current state, could deprive the Parisian club of a ticket to the playoffs, seemed unlikely.
As a result, after four rounds, PSG is on the second line in the group with eight points in the table, lagging behind their today’s rival by only one point. The third Club Brugge has four points less, Leipzig is seven points away. This handicap could have been even more solid if PSG had kept the away win against Leipzig (2:2) in the last round. But a penalty brought by Presnel Kimpembe in the last seconds deprived the Parisians of two points.

Manchester City has played a few lacklustre games lately but wins over Manchester United (2-0), and Everton (3-0) have shown that this was just a coincidence. Today, the Citizens will clearly strive to take revenge and, at the expense of three points, finally resolve the issue with the first line in the group. PSG regularly makes mistakes in away games and is unlikely to be able to prevent these plans from being realized.
We believe that guests have no chance. Prediction – victory for Manchester City with odds of 1.65. Manchester City in the last two home games did not leave PSG a chance, and it is likely that even today, the French will have problems. The Sky Blues have gained excellent shape and make mistakes at home very rarely. The hosts will clearly strive to win, and it is unlikely that the victory will be minimal – Manchester City, reaching an advantage in the score, is always trying to develop it. Our second bet will be a two-goal victory for Manchester City. This bet can be placed for 4.90 odds.
