Manchester City may have been made to wait to be confirmed Premier League champions at the weekend, but Pep Guardiola’s team can make history on Tuesday and secure a spot in the Champions League final for the first time.
The Premier League champions-elect came from behind to win 2-1 in Paris a week ago, courtesy of goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez and is on the brink of a maiden appearance on European soccer’s biggest stage.
City would have won a third Premier League title in four seasons had Liverpool defeated Manchester United on Sunday, only for the game between English soccer’s two biggest clubs to be postponed as United fans protested against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club.
City’s coronation was postponed but it remains a formality, as Guardiola’s team remains 13 points clear of its local rivals with only four games left—United has a game in hand.
With the league title is all but wrapped up, City is odds-on favourite to knock out last season’s runners-up and move within 90 minutes of lifting the Champions League trophy for the first time.
Despite the lavish investments delivered by the Abu Dhabi Royal Family in the 13 years since it first took control of the club, European soccer’s biggest prize has so far eluded City, having been knocked out in the quarterfinals for the last three seasons.
Itself no stranger to financial benefactors from the Middle East, PSG faces a nervous wait over the fitness of star striker Kylian Mbappe, who could miss the second leg after sitting out Saturday’s win over Lens with a thigh injury.
The good news for PSG is that its best performances in the Champions League this season have come away from home, with a 3-1 win against Manchester United in the group stages followed by 4-1 and 3-2 wins against Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the round of 16 and quarterfinals, respectively.
