One of the most intriguing games of the quarter-finals will kick off in Paris on Wednesday, as recent quarter-final regulars PSG take on first-timers Manchester City at the Parc des Princes.


PSG will feature in a Champions League quarter-final for the fourth-straight season when they face Manchester City on Wednesday night. However, they will be looking to go a step further this time, having previously been knocked out by Barcelona in 2013 and 2015, and Chelsea in 2014.

The Paris side have made it to the semi-final just once before – back in 1994/95 when they beat Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate to set up a semi-final clash with AC Milan – however, they have yet to reach a final.

Laurent Blanc’s men have lost just one of their last 19 Champions League home games. That defeat came to Barcelona in 2015. This season, they have won all but one of their European home games with the 0-0 draw against Real Madrid being the only exception.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will continue their journey into unknown territory as they play a Champions League quarter-final match for the first ever time in their history. They have made in to the Round of 16 twice before and were beaten by Spanish giants Barcelona on both occasions.

The Sky Blues have won three of their four Champions League away games so far this term, with the 1-0 defeat to Juventus on match day five being the only blemish on that record.

City Coach Manuel Pellegrini will be leading a team out at the quarter-final stage for the fourth time having previously guided Villarreal (2005/06, 2008/09) and Malaga (2012/13) to the last eight. However, only his 2006 Villarreal side, made it past this stage.


Manchester City have surprisingly fallen out of contention in the Premier League this season but have excelled in Europe, where they have previously struggled.

Meanwhile, PSG have been utterly dominant in their domestic campaign and are now fully focused on this competition. Their recent defeat to Monaco, was their first competitive home loss in 28 matches.

PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in the form of his life and has scored 34 goals for the French side this season,
