MANCHESTER CITY VS PSG PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Manchester City with squad depth and stability are leading Group A, and also second in the Premier League. The 0-2 defeat against PSG did not affect Guardiola’s students too much, because in the remaining 3 matches they brought 9 absolute points. The last 8 matches in all arenas won 6, the control style right on the opponent’s field is extremely effective. The defense brings peace of mind when only conceding 5 times and keeping a clean sheet in 4/8 matches. However, Man City still lacks a top-class striker, in the context of both Jesus and Sterling not meeting the requirements. The problem can be seen clearly in the first leg against PSG, although the game is better, The Citizens have difficulty in the last situations. In the context of the table, the situation is very favorable, the ability to explode goals at Etihad is not appreciated.
Paris Saint Germain’s ambition is undisputed after recruiting a series of blockbusters including Messi. Despite defeating Man City in the first leg, Pochettino’s students only got second place in Group A, with 2 draws 1-1 at Club Brugger and 2-2 against Leipzig. It is fair to say that PSG has not met expectations and has difficulty reconciling the stars. In the past 4 matches, they scored 8 goals and conceded 5 goals, the team that conceded the least, but the number of goals was only higher than Club Brugge. The problem of attack is not easy to solve because 3 trips to Etihad in the past have not had any goals. It will not be surprising if PSG continues to be deadlocked in the upcoming match.
Both will have to be very cautious and gain respect for the biggest opponent. Both possess a well-organized defense, the tug-of-war is predictable. In fact, the last 3/4 home matches of Manchester City have a faint score, the last 2 encounters also have no more than 2 goals.
Select: Under 3 FT.
