Manchester City-PSG: referee, team roster, TV … all about the Champions League shock

PSG move to Manchester City on Wednesday for the fifth day of the Champions League. Here is everything you need to know about this group A shock.


After four days, Manchester City leads Group A with 9 points (3 wins, 1 loss) just ahead of PSG and 8 points (2 wins, 2 draws). Next come FC Bruges (4 points) and RB Leipzig (1 point).

The first leg

Two months ago at the Parc des Princes, the Parisians had marked the spirits with a prestigious success (2-0) thanks in particular to the first goal of Lionel Messi and another by Idrissa Gana Gueye.

The referee

Daniele Orsato will lead Manchester City-PSG. The 45-year-old Italian referee has seen Paris many times in the past. And especially during the Champions League final, on August 23, 2020 against Bayern Munich. But the Parisians also crossed paths with him for victories (against Manchester United in February 2019 and Celtic in September 2017).

Probable teams

PSG: Donnarumma (or Navas) – Hakimi, Marquinhos (cap.), Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes – Paredes (or Wijnaldum), Verratti, Gueye – Messi, Mbappé (or Di Maria), Neymar

Manchester City : Ederson – Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo – Silva, Rodri, Gündogan (cap.) – Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Foden.

This clash between Manchester City and PSG will be watched live on Canal + from 9 p.m.
