PSG vs Man City

Manchester City would of course make it to their first-ever Champions League final last season, before eventually losing out to Chelsea.

The Citizens are set to get at least one more shot at European glory under Pep Guardiola this campaign, though, and have been drawn in a fairly tough group.

The Manchester powerhouse would begin their Champions League adventure vs RB Leipzig on the 15th of September at the Etihad.

Man City would come out on top in that game, playing out a simply staggering nine-goal thriller, which the Sky Blues won 6-3.

Now, the Citizens need to turn their attention towards their 2nd Champions League match of the season.

Pep Guardiola and co. are set to face off with PSG at the Parc des Princes this coming Tuesday, in what is, on paper, Man City’s toughest test of the 2021/22 group stage.

The latest on Lionel Messi

Ahead of the game, Man City have already been handed one boost in the form of Angel Di Maria being suspended for the tie.

And City did look to have been given another boost earlier in the week, when Lionel Messi was ruled out of PSG’s meeting with FC Metz with a bone bruise.

The same issue also kept him out of PSG’s win over Montpellier on Saturday, with his involvement vs Man City in a few days seemingly up in the air.

However, Spanish outlet AS have reported on Sunday that Messi could be fit to face his former boss and would train with the rest of his teammates on Sunday morning:
