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.

Mauricio Pochettino will opt for a 4-3-3 formation with several tweaks from their last game. Marquinhos might get the nod over Thilo Kehrer in defence, whereas Presnel Kimpembe looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Keylor Navas will continue to feature in between the sticks for the upcoming away encounter.

Presnel Kimpembe will partner Marquinhos at the heart of PSG’s backline as they try to neutralise Manchester City’s attacking threats throughout the ninety minutes.

Pochettino could opt for more attacking options on the pitch against Guardiola’s men, and hence, Nuno Mendes might start at the left-back position replacing Juan Bernat. Achraf Hakimi will continue to fill in on the other side as the right back.

Sergio Ramous could be in line for his much-awaited PSG debut.

Midfield

Idrissa Gueye and Georginio Wijnaldum are expected to fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the latter occupying a more central role.

Marco Verratti will slot into the central midfield position. The Italian international will be hoping to create some clear-cut goal scoring chances for the front men on Wednesday.

Leandro Paredes will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he might come on in the latter stages of the game if required.

Attack

Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi will take up the wide positions, looking to stretch their side’s attack and simultaneously cut inside when given the space and opportunity.

Kylian Mbappe will lead the line for the away side on Wednesday. The French striker will be hoping to make the most of his chances against the City defence that has conceded three goals in their last four games across all competitions.

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