Man City vs PSG betting tips

Manchester City vs Paris Saint-Germain Betting Tips

 Manchester City are hosting Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg semifinal of the champions league at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on 5th May 2021 at 00:30 IST. Two teams, two entirely different styles of play, two different strategies, one playing as a team while the other has real game-changers up their ranks. A mouth-watering clash on the cards.

Manchester City Form & Team News

Manchester City was the number one team after the group stage in this year’s Champions League. They qualified with 16 points from six games with five wins to their name. In the pre-quarters, Manchester City beat Borussia M’Gladbach by an aggregate score of four goals to zero. And in the Quarterfinals, they faced Germans Borussia Dortmund and went to win both the legs by the same margin of 2-1 to qualify for the Semi-finals. In the first leg, they won it 2-1 which would be a major factor. Pep Guardiola needs to win the championship this time around which has been slipping from his grasp ever since the famous 2011 title reign with Barcelona and with the sort of team he has, he is most likely going to finish on a high. 

John Stones might probably miss the next game.  The team composition will surround the mercurial Kevin De Bruyne who has been the most impactful player. Stones will be missed in defense but Pep will have something up his sleeve to work some magic. Torres is the highest goal scorer with four goals to his name while Foden and Gundogen have also netted three goals each. De Bruyne with four assists remains the team’s main man and the defense consisting of Cancelo, Dias and co. are a great lot.

Paris Saint-Germain Form & Team News

Paris Saint-Germain qualified as the number one team from Group H with 12 points from six games played. It’s been a dominant show from last season’s runners-up ever since the knockouts began. They beat Messi’s Barcelona in the pre-quarters with an aggregate score of 5-2 but as a matter of fact, the second leg fixture was a mere formality given the aggregate earned by the Paris side after the first leg. They beat German Champions Bayern Munich in the quarterfinal studded with a Mbappe brilliance in the first leg. They have a mountain to climb in the second leg given their deficit in the first leg. They now face English champions Man city in the semifinal second leg hoping to do one step more than their last championship showing. 

Kylian Mbappe, Alexandre Letellier and Juan Bernat might all miss the next game against Man City owing to injury concerns. Pochettino has seamlessly received the mantle from Tuchel with the managerial duties and is doing a brilliant job keeping the results going their way. Kylian Mbappe is scripting an amazing champions league story this season with memorable performances against Barca and Bayern. He has netted eight goals thus far. Neymar would want to erase his memories of a failed quest for champions league glory last season with nothing less than a win.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Man City look all set to play the Final from here on given their rampaging form across competitions, while PSG might need the PSG that played against Bayern in the first leg fixture to win against the formidable City lineup. With the likes of Mbappe, Neymar on one side and De Bruyne, Mahrez and co. on the other, we surely can expect a lot of goals. Surely, defensive tactics will be crucial for the winning side. 

Tip 1: Total Goals under 3.5

Both of the last two matches that Paris Saint-Germain have played across competitions have had the total goals to be under 3.5. In this champions league alone, Paris Saint-Germain have had three of the last four matches where the total goals have been under 3.5. In the case of Manchester City, all ten of the last ten matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be under 3.5. Playing home, all four of the last four have also had the total goals to be under 3.5. Their last five matches in the champions league this year have also had the total goals to be under 3.5. Even both of their last two head to head matches also say under 3.5 goals in total. So it’s quite likely the match will have under 3.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be under 3.5 is 1.58.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

In the last five matches played by Paris Saint-Germain across competitions, four have had both teams have scored. While playing away, four of the last four matches Paris Saint-Germain have played across competitions have had both teams scoring.  Four of the last five matches that they have played in the Champions League this year have had the side from Paris being involved in both teams scoring scenarios. Five of the last eight matches Manchester City have been part of have had the above condition being satisfied. Two of the last three matches played at home by Manchester City have also had the condition satisfied. Two of the last three head to head matches between the two sides though have yielded the condition as mentioned above, so it’s most likely both teams might end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.54


Two League Giants clashing in Manchester with hopes of winning the coveted trophy. Man City start favorites but last season’s runners-up might as well topple the Pep army. Mbappe, Neymar and co. will have a say in this fixture.  Summarising on a couple of bets from above

  1. Total Goals under 3.5 @1.58
  2. Both teams to score @ 1.54
