MANCHESTER CITY stand so close to that elusive Champions League triumph but PSG present a formidable barrier in the semi-finals.
City’s owners brought in Pep Guardiola with the aim of ruling Europe and this is the furthest he has taken them since taking charge five years ago.
They were 13/10 favourites with most firms to win the Champions League heading into the semis yet City have lost their air of invincibility in recent weeks.
Chelsea ruined their dream of an unprecedented Quadruple in the FA Cup last four and PSG have the firepower to dump them out of Europe too.
Having thrashed Barcelona in the last 16, the French champions then knocked out a Bayern Munich side who had also been looking unbeatable.
So if Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria hit the same heights tonight then PSG could be worth backing for a first-leg win at 11/5 with McBookie.
Their clash with Bayern was a thriller and this game should be the pick of the semi-finals.
Mbappe has been red-hot in Europe for Maurico Pochettino’s men and is a tempting 7/4 with Unibet for anytime scorer.
William Hill are offering 4/1 on each team winning over one corner in each half and that looks worth a punt in what should be an open game.
McBookie star bet
- PSG midfielder Idrissa Gueye steams into tackles and is 14/5 for a card tonight.
