Manchester City vs PSG preview: Manuel Pellegrini’s men hold slim advantage


It’s a big game for…

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: The Swede scored in the first leg last week – and against Chelsea in the previous round – but was outfoxed from the penalty spot by Joe Hart
and also blasted a presentable chance over the bar, and will be keen to prove his worth in a country where he has often been accused of not performing. PSG’s hopes of reaching the last four could well rest on the success of Zlatan’s night.

Player to watch…


The Belgian playmaker recently returned from two months out with a knee injury and instantly showed what City had been missing in his absence, scoring on his return at Bournemouth and following that with the opener in last Wednesday’s first leg. City missed the Belgian’s creativity and goal threat, winning just four of 12 games as they slipped out of contention in the Premier League title race and exited the FA Cup. Kept in relative reserve in last weekend’s win over West Brom, the Belgian should be ready to help City reach the last four of the Champions League for the first time.
