Manchester City vs PSG: Prediction 

This will be a close encounter between the two giants. PSG have now assembled one of the ferocious squad this year who can outclass any team. 

The French giants desperately want to win their first-ever Champions League, and it looks like they might accomplish this plan in this campaign. Despite PSG have been mundane in their previous fixture, their porous defense has been a significant concern. 

While Manchester City are without a striker, but team effort has been paying off. Pep Guardiola’s men will want to give a standout performance going into this game. Although PSG has a better squad, and they can pull off a victory.  

Sportco Prediction: 
Manchester City 0-1 PSG
