Both teams to score at PSG vs Manchester City 3/5 for Wednesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

Two sides who are looking to pick up an early advantage on Wednesday night, PSG will host Manchester City from behind closed doors at The Parc des Princes.

Starting with the hosts, after watching Lille mount a stunning comeback over the weekend, PSG are still shockingly in an uphill battle to retain their Ligue 1 crown this season. Sat one-point adrift of top-spot and with time ticking away, the French giants have still managed to impress over the past fortnight. Eventually coming past defending European champions Bayern Munich earlier in the month, new boss Mauricio Pochettino saw his side land a 3-1 win away at Metz last time out. Building off of that thumping 5-0 romp against Angers on Coupe de France duties last week, the former Tottenham boss has seen his squad gain a reputation for their lively meetings. It should be highlighted, PSG’s last two contests at The Parc des Princes have produced 10 goals.

As for the visitors, lifting their first piece of silverware of the season over the weekend, Manchester City certainly put in an eye-catching display at Wembley on Sunday afternoon. Landing a 1-0 win against Tottenham in what was a dominant display in the capital, Pep Guardiola’s side still have their sights set on a silverware sweep this season. Although the former Barcelona boss might have seen Chelsea end their FA Cup adventure earlier in the month, The Sky Blues are still tipped as the leading contender to clinch their first Champions League crown this season. Coming past German outfit Borussia Dortmund thanks to a 4-2 aggregate win, City have also continued to impress with their European displays on the road. It should be noted, Wednesday’s guests are unbeaten in each of their last nine European displays away from The Etihad.
