Former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has predicted that Manchester City will beat Paris Saint-Germain when both teams clash in tonight’s Champions League semi-final first-leg in Paris.
Man City had knocked Borussia Dortmund out of the Champions League quarter-final earlier this month, while PSG eliminated reigning champions, Bayern Munich from the competition.
Providing his prediction, Owen told BetVictor, “It’s been far from a vintage spell at home for PSG. The Parisians won 3-1 away to Metz on Saturday. However, they have only been victorious in three of their last eight competitive games at the Parc des Princes.
With another trophy in the bag, Manchester City are really gathering pace. The Citizens have only lost once on their travels in their last 22 matches, that coming against Chelsea at Wembley.
“PSG may have eliminated Bayern in the previous round, but their vulnerability at the back was there for everyone to see.
“One bonus for the home side will be the possible return of Marquinhos to their backline. That said, if City are on song again, I think they’ll have more than enough to secure a vital first-leg victory.
It’s 2-1 to the Manchester side for me.”
The kick-off for PSG vs Man City is 8 pm, Nigerian time.
