Manchester City are the hosts of the reverse match of the Champions League quarterfinals. The match is to be played on Tuesday, April 12 at Etihad Stadium. The winners of this clash will advance for the semifinals for the first time in their history.
Pellegrini’s men are quite an example of inconsistency this season. The team is able to lose points against league lowly but show solid performance in matches when they are underdogs like it happened in Paris. The first leg was full of action and goals scored. It ended with 2-2 that gives slight advantage to the Citizens. Manchester City gave away possession to the Parisians and focused on counterattacking football that payed off with 2 important away goals. Sergio Aguero is still the biggest threat to opponents’ defense (17 goals) despite number of injuries picked this season.

PSG set new record among top-5 European league, clinching the title 8 rounds before the end of the season in Ligue 1. So the team have no other priorities but Champions League. Of course, the first leg results can satisfy the Parisians and now they need to win in Manchester to advance for the next round. Considering the level of PSG players they definitely can take away victory. With such top-scorer as Zlatan (30 Ligue 1 goals this season) and players like Cavani and Di Maria we can expect PSG to play offence and create numerous opportunities.
Bookmakers don’t see obvious favorite of the match as any of the team can take victory in the second leg (2.63 for victory of any of the teams and 3.25 for a draw). At the same time, there are no doubts there will be over 2.5 goals in the match (1.7). Neither of team can relate on their defensive lines while offense of both the hosts and visitors can produce scoring opportunities. Of course, Manchester City have advantage after 2-2 on the road but the team was never build to be focused on holding such advantage. Considering the above we can expect high-scoring result in this match.
Prediction for the match: over 2.5 goals in the match.
