PSG vs Man City
The Champions League is back on our screens this week with two absolutely huge ties.
The first of which will see PSG play host to Manchester City in the first of two Champions League semi-final games.
The two outfits have hardly ever faced off, with the last meetings between the pair coming back in the quarter-final of this competition in 2016.
City came out on top on that occasion and that was actually the last time they made it two the semi-finals of Europe’s most coveted club competition.
So, Pep Guardiola is no doubt desperate to end his baren run in the competition and finally take the Sky Blues to their first final under the current format.
Mbappe update ahead of Man City
Ahead of the tie, PSG were handed something of an injury scare after Kylian Mbappe limped out of their clash with Metz last week.
At the time, Mauricio Pochettino was hopeful that it was nothing serious.
And, it appears that the Frenchman’s injury scare against Metz was indeed only something minor.
As reported on The Athletic’s Totally Football Show podcast on Monday, Mbappe was taken off as a precaution and he should be ok to face City:
“Yeah he looks like he’s going to be okay. So, he scored a couple of goals against Metz and then I think he got a bang on the thigh and went off as a precaution. But he should be ok.”
Marquinhos, who missed the clash with Metz completely, is also in contention to feature against City:
“Marquinhos was a big injury doubt, he didn’t feature against Metz but looks like he should be fit to feature, might not be fit enough to start.”
