A tale of two halves determined last week’s UEFA Champions League first leg between Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain and the English side emerged with a 2-1 win in France when it was all said and done.
Now, the two giants reconvene at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester for the opportunity to be the first team to advance to this season’s final. City aims to reach the UCL final for its first time in club history, while PSG attempts to accomplish the feat in back-to-back campaigns.
Kylian Mbappe’s status for the Parisians has been the biggest talking point from either side in the lead up to Tuesday’s match, with the star Frenchman questionable after missing PSG’s Ligue 1 match against Lens on Saturday.
The 2018 World Cup winner will surely give it a go during pregame warm ups to determine whether he can play a part in the match, but all signs point towards Mbappe playing some role in the fixture as Paris looks to turn around its deficit.
For Man City, the job is quite simple. They already picked up two away goals and played PSG off the pitch during the second half of leg one.
Let’s take a closer look at PSG and Man City as they prepare for their semi final matchup.
