Only two games stand in the way of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and the Champions League final.
A trip for PSG would mark the club’s second all-time berth on the ultimate stage (and second in as many years). Man City, meanwhile, has never made the Champions League final and has only made the semifinals once before (losing 2-0 to fellow Premier League team Chelsea).
The most dangerous player on the field for Wednesday’s match will be PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, who with eight goals is the leading scorer among teams still in contention for the Champions League title. He is also tied for second in Europe’s Golden Shoe race, tallying 25 goals in 34 matches for PSG in Ligue 1. Man City doesn’t have quite the scoring threat of Mbappe, but has plenty of scoring threats such as Ilkay Gundogan (16 goals, three in Champions League), Phil Foden (14 and three) and Ferran Torres (nine and three).
Manchester City earned its semifinal berth with a 4-2 aggregate victory over Borussia Dortmund in the quarterfinals, while PSG advanced past Bayern Munich 3-3 with a 3-1 away goal advantage. Man City has the all-time edge over PSG, having advanced past the Parisian club 3-2 in the 2015-16 Champions League quarterfinals. The only prior meeting between the two was a 0-0 draw in the 2007-08 UEFA Cup.
