Manchester City are on the verge of reaching their first ever Uefa Champions League final - but Paris Saint-Germain have one last roll of the dice in this semi-final this evening.

PSG looked to be in control of the tie midway through the first leg, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side deservedly leading 1-0 in Paris at half-time thanks to a Marquinhos header.

However, Pep Guardiola tables turned after the interval with Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scoring two valuable away goals for City, while Idrissa Gueye was shown a red card for a horrible lunge on Ilkay Gundogan.

That 2-1 result leaves City as huge favourites to reach a final against either Chelsea or Real Madrid, but first they must keep Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at bay for another 90 minutes.

Man City vs PSG prediction

The nature of the first leg makes this prediction even tougher. PSG were dominant for 45 minutes, but City strolled the second half and should have scored more than twice.

It could all depend on an early goal. PSG need to score at least twice at the Etihad, and if they get one early doors it could turn into a shootout - but City should have just enough to see this one out and reach the final.

Man City 1-1 PSG (3-2 on aggregate)
