There's no exiting this stadium without a winner tonight as it's the second leg of the Champions League Semi-finals meeting between Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain. Game on!

It's no vacation for neither City nor Paris Saint Germain as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

It's quite the trip for Paris Saint Germain when visiting City as the cities are 800 kilometers apart.

Manchester City form and stats

City was eliminated in the quarter-finals last season in the Champions League.

Manchester City have performed here at Etihad Stadium this season with 12 wins from 17 Premier League matches. Some points have been lost, as they have drawn 2 games and lost 3. This match is a Champions League match, and the hometeam has the total statistics 10 wins, 1 draw and 0 losses in this competition.

City enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Crystal Palace's place. The match ended 2-0 with Ferrán Torres and Sergio Agüero scoring. In the preceding match a 2-1 victory visiting Paris Saint Germain.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Premier League game versus Chelsea in only four days. This game is also played here at Etihad Stadium.

Paris Saint Germain form and stats

They also participated in Champions League last season. This ended in the final.

Paris Saint Germain have an excellent away record in the Ligue 1 so far with 12-2-3 from 17 games. When we have look at the Champions League statistics, we find 6W-1D-4L. This is both home and away. The fact that Paris have won four matches in a row should scare the hosts and makes this contest more interesting. Long winning streaks away are a rare occurrence in football, which only makes Paris's record of six away victories in a row even more impressive. They last lost points away in the Lorient game.

The supporters enjoyed Paris's previous game versus Lens, a Ligue 1 2-1 win played at home. Preceding that, the 1-2 home loss versus Manchester City.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Paris playing away, we found one game. Results were one away win, zero draws and zero home wins.

Paris have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 39 goals from 17 away matches. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (13 so far).

Head 2 Head

The two sides played each other earlier this season: Paris Saint Germain - City 1-2. Head-2-head stats last four meetings: two - two - zero (Manchester City wins - draws - Paris Saint Germain wins). As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), two had two or less.
