PSG vs Man City
The Champions League will return to our screens this week, with two absolutely huge ties.
The second will see PSG play host to Manchester City on Wednesday, in the first of two semi-final meetings.
The two outfits have little experience against one another, with their last clash having come back in the quarter-final of the competition in 2016.
City came out on top on that occasion, marking the last time they made it to the semi-finals of Europe’s most high-profile tournament.
So, this time around, Pep Guardiola will no doubt be desperate to end his barren run in the Champions League, and finally guide the Sky Blues to their first final under the current format.
Guardiola on Foden-Mbappe comparisons
Ahead of the tie, meanwhile, Pep Guardiola held his latest pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
The Spaniard discussed a number of topics in the presser, including team news – confirming that City have a fully fit squad ahead of the game:
💬 PEP: Everyone is fit and ready and happy I think. I am grateful to have this opportunity to be there. For us it is new and we are incredibly grateful to live it.
We know what we have to do. One game at a time. We go there and try to win that game.

Guardiola was also drawn on comparisons between Phil Foden and Kylian Mbappe, with the Citizens boss having had the following to say:
“They play in different positions. Both are young incredibly skilled, they are in completely different positions so difficult to compare. What is important is PSG will be so happy to have Mbappe and you can’t imagine how happy we are to have Phil. He’s a City supporter, he’s in the national team. He won that on the grass. I don’t give presents to the players if they don’t deserve it or they are a City fan. He’s playing lately because he’s at a good level.”
