Manchester City will clash heads with PSG at the Etihad on Wednesday night, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The Citizens will be heading into the contest on the back of a solid 3-0 victory over Everton in the Premier League, whereas the visitors recorded a 3-1 win against FC Nates on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Riyad Mahrez might get the nod over Raheem Sterling in attack, whereas Aymeric Laporte looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Ederson Moraes will return to operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Wednesday.

Ruben Dias will replace Aymeric Laporte to form the centre-half partnership with John Stones at the heart of City’s backline.

Joao Cancelo should be a starter at the left-back position, whereas Kyle Walker will fill in on the other flank as the right-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Rodri might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the home side’s back-four.

Ilkay Gundogan will slot into the central midfield role, whereas Bernardo Silva is expected to start in the attacking midfield position. The duo would be determined to set up some clear cut goal scoring chances for the front men.

Fernandinho will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could come on to make a cameo appearance in the second half.

Kevin De Bruyne will miss the match after testing positive for coronavirus.

Attack

Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Gabriel Jesus will lead the line for Manchester City in midweek. The Brazil international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the PSG defence that has conceded six goals in their last four matches across all competitions.

Raheem Sterling will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second forty-five minutes.
