Manchester City take on Paris Saint-Germain tonight in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final, and are bidding to reach their first final.
Pep Guardiola’s side hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg, which saw the Citizens come from behind at the Parc des Princes.
Following Marquinhos’ opener, Kevin De Bruyne’s cross evaded everyone to nestle in the corner of the net, before Riyad Mahrez free-kick found the tiniest of gaps in a poor PSG wall.
Tonight hopes are high amongst City fans, as much as the nerves are shredded.
This is very much unfamiliar territory, and the team will need to show lots of focus and heart.
Guardiola has gone with an XI most people would have anticipated for the second leg – there are just two changes to the side that started the first leg.
Ederson is in goal, and he’s protected by a back four of Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, John Stones and Oleksandr Zinchenko, with the Ukraine international being preferred to Joao Cancelo.
In midfield, Fernandinho comes in for Rodri alongside Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva and in attack, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden are either side of Kevin De Bruyne.
It’s probable De Bruyne will interchange with Silva in that false nine position.
In terms of the visitors, the big news is that Kylian Mbappe is only fit enough for the bench.
The Frenchman missed Saturday’s win over Lens with a calf injury, and seemingly hasn’t shaken off the issue entirely.
But PSG obviously still carry major threats in the form of Angel Di Maria and Neymar, so the likes of Dias and Stones will have to be at the top of their games once again.
