Paris Saint Germain (PSG) host Premier League champions Manchester City at Parc des Princes in the early hours of Wednesday, September 29 in Matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season.
PSG vs MCI Dream11 prediction
The mouthwatering clash between the two cash-rich clubs will see Lionel Messi lining up against his former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.
The Argentine captain has scored six goals in four Champions League games against teams managed by Guardiola, which is the most any player has scored in the competition against the Catalan.
Despite having a swashbuckling forward line of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Messi, PSG are yet to find their attacking groove. Manchester City will be looking to exploit PSG’s uncertainty up front by making the most of their attacks against Parisians. Although it’s a close game to call, there are high chances of the well-oiled English club coming home with all three points.
PSG vs MCI Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Considering City lack an out-and-out striker, one can go with Neymar to have an impact on Wednesday. The Brazil forward has scored one goal and has assisted two in his last three matches and will be looking to have a telling impact against Guardiola’s men.
Top tip: Best midfielder
PSG are set to be without one of their most trusted midfielders Angel di Maria, making MCI’s Jack Grealish the player to keep a close eye on at the center of the park. The 26-year-old might have scored only two goals this season, but there has been no shortage of goal scoring chances created by him.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
PSG’s Achraf Hakimi has been involved in five goals this season (three goals, two assists) and will be a danger for City from the right flank. He’s ability to bomb forward from the back, makes him one of the most sought-after and deadly full-backs in world football at present.
As far as the goalkeeper spot goes, Manchester City’s Ederson should be the man to go with considering his ability to make point-blank reaction saves as well as his unparalleled distribution of the ball.
PSG vs MCI probable playing XI
PSG playing XI (probable): Keylor Navas (goalkeeper); Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos (captain), Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera; Julian Draxler, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe
MCI playing XI (probable): Ederson (goalkeeper); Kyle Walker, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo; Fernandinho (captain), Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva; Riyad Mahrez, Ferran Torres, Jack Grealish
