Manchester City will be looking to knock Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League when they square off Tuesday night in the second leg of the semi-final. City continued the march towards the Premier League title with another easy win against Crystal Palace on Saturday, and the fact that they didn’t have to strain themselves too much bodes well here.
City enter the PSG clash tomorrow night with two away goals and a lead which is a huge advantage in the context of this tie being contested by the world’s only two state owned clubs.

Based on how well they bounced back, after falling behind during the first leg, the Manchester side will be confident of closig the deal tomorrow night.
This could be one of the last times that we see a legend in action with the club where he built his legacy, as Sergio Aguero confirmed he’s ready to play. This could add another dimension to the attack, one which has already caused PSG a lot of problems. Another player who will be ready is John Stones after the Englishman missed the weekend fixture due to suspension.
A lot of the City players in the first leg were rested over the weekend, and they’re in line to make a return here. This includes both the goal scorers from last week, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez. Any scoring chances that the hosts create tomorrow will likely come from these two.
Despite looking like they had control of the game, for the first 60 minutes or so, PSG let go of that advantage, and now the English side has the impetus to finish them off. Back at the Etihad, City will be playing with a lot more freedom than they had in Paris given their advantageous position in the tie.
