Man City v PSG betting tips: Top spot up for grabs
Preview and odds for Wednesday’s Champions League clash
Top spot in Group A will almost certainly be decided when these European giants meet and we have studied the odds to highlight some Man City v PSG betting tips.
City knocked PSG out of last season’s Champions League at the semi-final stage and both teams will be hoping to go all the way this time regardless of the result here.
Wednesday’s match at the Etihad Stadium kicks off at 8pm and is live on BT Sport.
Man City v PSG match odds
City’s place in the last 16 will be confirmed if they avoid defeat here or if Club Brugge fail to beat Leipzig.
They can win the group with a game to spare, though, with a victory and that will surely be the aim for Pep Guardiola’s men, who are 4/6 to do just that.
City have a one-point lead at the top of Group A with PSG having already dropped points against the other two teams in the group.
They have drawn both of their away matches so far and a third draw, which would keep City in control of the group, can be backed at 16/5 in Man City v PSG betting tips.
PSG have scored in all four matches while City are the top scorers in the group with 15 so this has the makings of an entertaining game.
PSG are 4/1 for the win which would see them qualify and go top of the group, although they could still progress even if they lose depending on the result in the other game.
Man City v PSG head-to-head
Lionel Messi scored his first Paris St Germain goal when the teams met in the French capital in September.
The six-time world player of the year rolled back the years with a superb finish as PSG claimed a 2-0 win in a compelling clash at the Parc des Princes.
The sublime strike, which came after a powerful run and neat one-two with Kylian Mbappe, doubled PSG’s lead after former Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye opened the scoring early on.
City played a full part in a thrilling encounter but the closest they went to scoring was when Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva both hit the crossbar within the space of a few seconds in the first half.
City came out on top in both legs of last season’s semi-final, coming from behind to win 2-1 in Paris before a 2-0 victory in the home leg completed a 4-1 aggregate victory.
Man City v PSG key battles
Riyad Mahrez was City’s match-winner in last season’s semi-final, grabbing the second goal in the first leg and then bagging a brace at the Etihad.
Having only come off the bench after 58 minutes in Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Everton, he could have a starting role here and is 5/1 to open the scoring.
Looking at the #YourCall options, 2/1 is on offer for City to win and Mahrez to have at least two shots on target.
PSG have plenty of attacking talent of their own of course and Mbappe and Messi were on target in Saturday’s 3-1 win against Nantes.
