Predicted Man City XI against PSG


Manchester City could seal their place in the Etihad Champions League final on Tuesday night, provided they can maintain their 2-1 lead from the first leg.

Pep Guardiola’s team made a great display in the second half to beat Mauricio Pochettino’s team in France last week and are therefore favorites to seal a place in the final.

However, PSG has incredibly talented players like Neymar and Killian Mbape, so they will certainly not roll over and allow the citizens to go through the 90 minutes on Tuesday, which promises to be another open and fun game.

City took a big step toward winning the Premier League title with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday after making many changes, and it looks likely Guardiola will reintroduce some of those who had rested at Selhurst Park.

Will City reach the Champions League final?

Yes

No

No

Here’s how we think the Spanish manager will line up on Tuesday, with nine changes from the team that started against Palace.

Ederson is one of two players to keep his place, with the Brazilian starting between the sticks for the citizens.

Everything is a change from behind, as Ruben Diaz and John Stones resume their partnership in the center of defense, while Alexander Zinchenko replaces Benjamin Mandy and Kyle Walker takes on the role of Joao Cancello, who fought in the first half against PSG for a final out.

In midfield, Ilkay Gundogan replaces Fernandinho as Rodri’s partner, with Bernardo Silva playing a more attacking role in front of them and Sergio Aguero falling on the bench, despite his superb goal at Selhurst Park.

Ferran Torres and Rahim Stirling are also a little lucky to miss the wings, with Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez in their place, while the “extraordinary” Kevin De Bruyne surprisingly returns from the front and Gabriel Jesus sits on the bench.
