Champions League Semifinal Preview: Man. City Vs. PSG

Manchester City is up 2-1 on aggregate goals going into the second leg of their semifinal match against PSG, tonight at 20:00 GMT.

If there is one match that every football fan in the world will be watching, it is probably this one. The second leg of the Champions League semifinal between Manchester City and PSG. The Citizens are up 2-1 on aggregate goals after the first leg following a very fast and furious second half, which saw Kevin De Bruyne scored in the 64th minute, followed by a goal by Riyad Mahrez only 6 minutes later. 

PSG got a red card in the 77th minute of action, which basically left them looking for answers, while City cruised to victory. 

Tonight, the match will be played at Parc des Princes, giving PSG a slight advantage, but, City is very strong right now and it will be very tough to bring them down. 

Manchester City is on an away-game win streak like you wouldn't believe. Since drawing with Manchester United back in December 2020, City has won 18 away games with no draws nor losses, across all competitions. That is an incredible record and the reason they are at the top of the Premier League and favorites to win the Champions League this season. 

PSG looked great in the first half of the first leg but slowed slightly in the second half. They were leading 1-0 before City started to put on the pressure and they were not able to bounce back, unfortunately.
