Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have an arduous task at hand as they host Premier League giants Manchester City for the first leg of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21 semi-final clash at the Parc des Princes on Thursday.
After knocking out defending champions Bayern Munich in the quarter-final stages, PSG are one of the favourites to lift the title this season. However, Pep Guardiola’s men were clinical against Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the previous tie and are strong contenders to reach their maiden UCL final.
Both the teams have been successful in their respective domestic leagues but are yet to taste European glory. While PSG are in touching distance of Ligue 1 leaders Losc Lille, Manchester City have opened up a 10-point gap atop the Premier League table and come to this fixture as the EFL Cup 2020-21 champions.
The PSG vs Manchester City head-to-head record is dominated by the Cityzens, who have won once and drawn twice against the French side. Their last meeting came in the quarter-finals of the 2015-2016 Champions League, where City won 3-2 on aggregate. Watch PSG vs Manchester City live!
