A spot in the Champions League final will be at stake when Manchester City will take on PSG in the second leg of their semifinals. The teams will meet at the Etihad Stadium on May 4, with the Citizens boasting a 2-1 advantage from their first-leg fixture.
The two clubs have met each other 4 times in different tournaments. Their first H2H match took place at the group stage of the UEFA Cup in 2008 and ended in a scoreless draw.
8 years later, the teams, strengthened with the help of rich investors from the Middle East, faced each other in the Champions League quarter-finals. Manchester City boasted the presence of such famous players as Hart, Navas, Fernandinho, de Bruyne, Silva, and Aguero. Meanwhile, PSG’s squad included van der Wiel, Motta, Cavani, Di Maria, and Ibrahimovic. That confrontation ended in a 3-2 aggregate win for the English club.
Now, in 2021, history will repeat itself. Will the Parisians yield their place in the next stage to the Citizens? It’s interesting that for ManCity this final will become the first in the history of the club.
Considering that the 1st match ended in a 2-1 victory for the Citizens, bookies see Pep Guardiola’s side as the favourites, giving the odds of 1.71 on Manchester City.
The Parisians will more likely adopt an attack-minded approach, which potentially can cause mistakes. The odds on PSG’s victory – 4.58.
Betting on a draw may raise your money 1 to 4.24. But remember that a draw will suit ManCity only.
