Manchester City vs. PSG: How to watch Champions League semifinal Leg 2 in Canada
Two clubs looking for first-ever titles, PSG and Manchester City, will hit the pitch on Tuesday in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal.
Man City, who will host the match, hold a 2-1 aggregate lead and remain unbeaten in UCL in 2020-21. Appearing in just its second semifinal in team history (it lost to Real Madrid in 2016), the Premier League club is aiming for its first Champions League final. Manager Pep Guardiola is aiming for a personal return, as he made the final 10 years ago with Barcelona; however, he’s lost his past four semifinal appearances with Barca and Bayern Munich.
They could be facing a PSG squad without star striker Kylian
Mbappe. The 22-year-old Frenchman missed the club’s win over Lens on Saturday because of a thigh injury.
History is not on the side of PSG, who are winless in four matches against Man City in European competition — including Leg 1 of this year’s semis and a UCL quarterfinal match-up in 2016. The French club is aiming for a return to the final on Tuesday; they lost to Bayern Munich in the 2019-21 final. Only five clubs have advanced to the final after being a runner-up the year prior; PSG will aim to be the sixth after getting a little revenge in the quarterfinals; the Ligue 1 squad sent Bayern and Canadian superstar Alphonso Davies packing backed by a red-hot Mbappe.
