Why bet on Paris Saint-Germain versus Manchester City?

Paris Saint-Germain has gotten the unluckiest draws during the entire Champions League. All PSG has done has answered the bell every time they’ve stepped onto the pitch. PSG knocked Barcelona out in the Round of 32. In the Round of 16, they bested Bayern. Granted, Paris got to battle a Bayern team missing Robert Lewandowski. Still, scoring 3 goals versus Bayern’s defense impresses. If PSG could beat Barca and Bayern, why couldn’t they beat Man City?

Why bet on Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain?

Manchester City is the Champions League favorite now that Bayern has fallen. The Sky Blues rarely lose. Heck, Man City rarely draws. Pep Guardiola’s squad has 25 wins and 2 losses since the start of 2021. The 2 losses were both versus English Premier League rivals, Leeds and Manchester United. Unless the Sky Blues just don’t have it, like in the losses to Leeds and Man U, they should have a great shot of beating Paris Saint-Germain on April 28.

Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain Final Betting Analysis

We can’t hold Man City’s losses against them. The Sky Blues have an 11-point lead over Manchester United on the Premier League standings. Manchester City is in almost zero danger of losing the EPL, which is why they’re concentrating more on UCL matches like the one on April 28.

With that being written, Paris Saint-Germain is a great soccer club and they battle Man City on their pitch. But PSG I sup against in this. First, they battled Barcelona when Messi and his mates were in their worst possible form. 

Paris rushed out to a massive lead after the first-leg, which meant they could coast in the second-leg. When it comes to their aggregate victory against Bayern, it’s obvious what happened.

Robert Lewandowski missed both matches. PSG won the tie-breaker because they scored more away goals than Bayern.

On April 28, Paris Saint-Germain faces a dialed in squad. Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in the world right now while City’s goalie, Ederson, has been unbelievable. Pep can taste a Champions League Final berth. He’ll make sure his team grabs the upper hand with a first-leg victory.
