Man City must contend with the threat of Lionel Messi
Man City are taking on PSG in a match which could decide who wins Champions League group A.
City have three wins from their four games so far, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Lionel Messi in Paris, while PSG are second in the group, one point back.
PSG’s build-up to the game has been overshadowed by reports the manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to quit for Manchester United, with Zinedine Zidane his possible replacement.
Ilkay Gundogan says City are determined to make amends for their final defeat at the hands of Chelsea last year. “Having that game of the final last season still in our minds will give us some more motivation – even though it’s not needed. Once you’ve been in the final you always want to go back,” the German told a news conference.
“I’ll try my best to get to the final, whether it’s this year or another. It’s about that will to go as far as possible and then that combination, of a little bit of luck and the right qualities and players. We can do it, that should be the target for us.”
