Paris Saint-Germain have been a threat up front lately, having scored 12 goals in their previous 6 matches.
While their manager Mauricio Pochettino would no doubt take that as a positive sign, Paris Saint-Germain have been somewhat of a leak at the back, having also conceded in the same 5 games. However, it remains to be seen if that trend will continue in the next game.
A review of their previous head-to-head clash back to 03/12/2008 shows us that Manchester City have won 3 of these fixtures & PSG 1, with the draw tally being 2.
A combined total of 12 goals have been scored between them in this period, with 7 of them from The Citizens and 5 from Les Rouge-et-Bleu. Average goals per game is 2.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has the full complement, without any fitness concerns ahead of this clash with a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
With a completely healthy team available to choose from, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino had no fitness issues at all before this match.
Lionel Messi is considered one of the best players in the history of football. He was born on June 24, 1987 in Rosario and started his football career at Newell's Old Boys.
At the age of 10 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, but after realizing his potential at a young age, Barcelona decided to pay for his treatment.
Messi joined Barca in 2001 and he has been playing for the Camp Nou team ever since.
The Argentine magician has won eight La Liga trophies with Barca and he helped the Catalan giants lift no less than four Champions League titles (2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2014/2015).
In the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign Messi scored 50 goals for Barca, while netting 14 goals in the 2011/2012 Champions League campaign.
The five-time Golden Ball award winner has established himself as Barcelona's all-time leading goalscorer, but he is yet to win a trophy with the Argentina national team in a major tournament.
Leo Messi, however, has won the Olympic Gold Medal (2008) and the FIFA World Youth Championship (2005), with la Albiceleste.
Manchester City is the least famous of the two big Manchester-based clubs.
The club was founded in 1880, but they have struggled in the English Premier League in the past.
However, since the club was bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, The Citizens have played an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers ended up paying the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 58,197.
Manchester United is considered as Manchester City's biggest rival and players like Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most extraordinary players to ever play for the Etihad Stadium team.
Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it should be noted that they made it to the semifinals of the Champions League in the 2015/2016 season.
Our thinking is that Paris Saint-Germain will likely be able to score against this Manchester City line-up, but maybe not as much as they conceded.
We anticipate a very close match with a 2-1 margin of victory for Manchester City at full time. Looking forward to this.(red)

Predicted Score Manchester City vs PSG: 2-1
