Why is Manchester City a safe bet in Game 2?
The Cityzens head in the game unbeaten in all of their last four encounters with PSD, winning two and drawing two. They’ve won their last six tournament games and with another victory in this one, they would break the record for the longest ever winning run by an English team in the competitions’ history. Also, they’ve won 10 of 11 tournament matches this season, with 23 goals and only four conceded.
One fact to mention is that this would be their first Champions League final in 51 years, since the won the 1970 Winners’ Cip final against Gornik Zabrze. This could break their record for the longest gap between UEFA European final appearances.
Kevin De Bruyne is the player to watch in the City squad. Three of his ten goals have gone against PSG, making them the team he’s scored more than once against. He can become the second player to score in four consecutive games against the French team.

Why is PSG a safe bet in Game 2?
Paris Saint-Germain heads into the match with six of their 11 Champions League games won, with four in a row, before their draw at home against Barcelona in the Round of 16. They took down last year’s champs, Bayern Munich, in the quarterfinals, guaranteeing a new champion for this season.
They have progressed when they lost the first leg of a knockout round. Such is last season against Borussia Dortmund. But their history in the competition, in general terms, they have never progressed after losing the first leg of a knockout tie at home. So this could come into play if they don’t get their act together.
Mbappé should be the player to keep an eye out for in the French squad. Though he wasn’t able to get a shot in during the first leg, he has had success scoring in Etihad, while he was playing in Monaco in 2017. He could bring the extra push this time around.
