Manchester City v PSG Betting Preview: City and PSG set for draw

This European semi-final is on a knife-edge after the first leg finished 2-2 at the Parc de Princes last Wednesday. The result in the first leg gives City the advantage of having the two away goals and that could be crucial in such a tight tie.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have not been great at the Etihad Stadium of late and have won just twice in six games on home soil. They are unbeaten in three home games in the Champions League though, after suffering successive home defeats.

The Citizens are odds of 9/5 with BetVictor to record a win in this very difficult fixture. Any win would of course take them through to the semi-finals.

PSG will know that they simply have to win this game to be sure of progressing to the last four of the competition. Laurent Blanc’s side have won four out of their last five games in Europe’s elite competition with the first leg draw the exception in that run.

The club from the French capital have also won three out of their four away games in this competition. Their only away defeat came at Spanish Real Madrid, which is their only defeat in this competition this season. Blanc’s side are odds of 8/5 with William Hill to win this crucial clash.

Maverick Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored five times in the champions League this season, including in the first leg. He can be backed at odds of 9/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring in this clash.

Top Tip

I simply cannot separate these teams in term of a Winner and that is why I am sitting the fence and saying this clash could finish in a draw. You can back the draw at odds of 27/10 at BetVictor.
