Manchester City host French champions Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals at Etihad this week.

The English side secured an impressive 2-2 draw against Laurent Blanc’s side during the first leg in Paris and will be looking to finish job in Manchester.

A goalless draw is enough to send them through to the semi-finals of the competition and Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping that the likes of De Bruyne, Aguero and Toure can inspire his side to European glory.

PSG were outstanding at Stamford Bridge earlier this season and will be looking to put on a similar performance against the Etihad outfit later this week.
