Man City v PSG: Citizens prepare for historic European night

| 12.04.2016

A Premier League title is all but beyond them this season, but Manchester City could still make this campaign a historic one if they can see off PSG tonight.

The Citizens had never reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League before, but they weren’t fazed by the task ahead when holding the Parisian side to a 2-2 draw in the French capital last week.

Both sides won at the weekend, but Manuel Pellegrini’s City will need to be on top form to keep out Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co at the Etihad, and again they’ll be without club captain Vincent Kompany.

The Blues are 17/10 for victory, with PSG available at 7/5, while a draw – where a 0-0 or 1-1 would send City through – is 5/2.

As for whose name goes into the semi-final draw, well it’s 8/13 City reach the last four, making them favourites with PSG at 6/5.

City will be hoping Sergio Aguero is at his potent best, and the Argentine ace netted at the weekend versus West Brom.

Ahead of the match we’re boosting Aguero to score and Man City to win from 5/2 to 7/2, while PSG’s main threat lies of course with a certain Swede.

Zlatan has arguably enjoyed the finest campaign of his career this year, and heads to Manchester with 39 goals from 42 appearances in all competitions.

Ibrahimovic missed a penalty and another one-on-one before getting a somewhat fortunate goal in the first-leg, and we’re boosting the striker to score and PSG to win from 5/2 to 7/2.

The visitors have scored in 22 of their 24 away games this season, while City have conceded in 18 of their 24 home fixtures.

Both teams to score is 4/9, while another score draw is 3/1.

There’s no guarantee City will claim a spot in next season’s competition via the Premier League, but this has been their best season in Europe, the question is though, will it continue beyond tonight?
