Why bet on Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain?
It took Manchester City over a half, but the Sky Blues got the first-leg victory. The key for Man City is that they scored 2 away goals, which means if they play this game tight, and don’t lose by more than a goal, they win on the aggregate. Manchester City doesn’t lay down for any opponent, though. So expect City to play for the win instead of just coasting through to the Champions League Finals with a draw.

Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain Final Betting Analysis
Paris Saint-Germain lost a heartbreaker. The first goal PSG gave up had everything to do with goalie Navas blowing the save.
Navas totally misread Kevin De Bruyne’s pass. It bounced on the grass and then skated into the back of the net. Who knows why Navas wasn’t on that side of the goal. But his flub is the reason Man City got the equalizer.
The second-goal happened off a free kick. Somehow, Riyad Mahrez got the kick past Paris’ wall. Navas had no shot to stop the kick.
Both goals were back breakers. Paris had their shot and they failed. Expect PSG, which doesn’t always step onto the pitch mentally focused, to fold early against Manchester City.
The Sky Blues will attempt to provide an early arrow early into Paris’ heart. After watching both teams in the first-leg, Man City should be successful.
