French champions Paris Saint-Germain take on Manchester City in the Champions League this week.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side are in the quarter-finals for the first and will be looking to make the most of it against Laurent Blanc’s in-form PSG side.
T0he French giants will look to make their way into the semi-finals with another win over English clubs. They already humiliated Chelsea in the knockouts and will look to do the same to City in the quarter-finals.
Manchester City have been very inconsistent all season and will need significant improvement in order to beat the French outfit over the two legs.
In terms of quality, PSG are defensively well drilled and a much more balanced unit. Manchester City have been shocking at the back and without Kompany, they will struggle once again.
The return of De Bruyne will be a major boost for the Premier League club and it will be a fascinating tie between two cash-rich sides desperate to make their mark in Europe.
Manchester City will be without some of their key players for the Paris Saint-Germain clash this week.
Vincent Kompany, Raheem Sterling, and Joe Hart are all injured and the Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi is a doubt.
