PSG v Man City: Underrated hosts the smart bet against Guardiola's visitors
James Eastham assesses the odds ahead of this mouthwatering clash in Paris on Tuesday night...
Messi not yet certain to start
City clear favourites to win
PSG's home record in the group stage is generally excellent: it reads W11-D3-L1 over the past five seasons. In that time they have hosted and beaten some of Europe's heavyweight sides, including Real Madrid (3-0, 2019-20), Liverpool (2-1, 2018-19) and Bayern Munich (3-0, 2017-18).
Look out for late goals
Julian Draxler scored on 89 minutes in their 2-0 win over Montpellier at the weekend, while Achraf Hakimi netted a 95th-minute winner at Metz (2-1) during last week's midweek round of fixtures, and Mauro Icardi scored a 93rd minute winner at home to Lyon (2-1) in the set of games before that.
