GOOD EVENING FROM MANCHESTER
Welcome to our live coverage of the big Champions League clash between Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain at the Etihad.
It’s the battle of the billionaires as Sheikh Mansour’s City lock horns with Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s PSG in a match that has all the makings of a Champions League final.
The Citizens’ boss Pep Guardiola, however, won’t be having all his stars as Kevin De Bruyne is still self-isolating after testing positive for coronavirus during the international break.
Guardiola may also have to make some late calls as he admitted that some players have “niggles” during the pre-match press conference.
Jack Grealish missed Sunday’s 3-0 victory against Everton after suffering a knock but is feeling “much better”.
Gabriel Jesus looks set to return and may replace 19-year-old Cole Palmer, who is following in the footsteps of other City golden boys like Phil Foden.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, on the other hand, will have to forget all the talk about him being monitored by Manchester United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement in the dugout.
And Pochettino has been handed a major boost as it looks like Sergio Ramos may finally make his debut ever since joining the Parisians from Real Madrid last summer after shaking off a calf problem.
But star goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is struggling with an illness, while Julian Draxler and Rafinha are both major doubts.
The French giants are almost certain to line-up with their feared trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe up front
