Half-time: Man City 0 – 0 PSG

45 minutes: Either way, there is no goal at the break. City hit the post and cleared a Rodri header off the line. They have parked the visitors firmly in their own half but have yet to find a breakthrough.

PSG’s best chance came from Mbappe’s counterattack at the very end of the half, but he couldn’t hit the target from the front edge of the box.

We have the impression that there are goals in this match, I hope they arrive in the second half.

Man City 0 – 0 PSG

38 minutes: PSG center-backs Marquinhos and Kimpembe have been outstanding so far. City have entered the box on several occasions with some great runs through the canals and a few crosses that the defenders have been up to.

However, PSG cannot come out, the high pressure from City means they maintain continuous pressure in the last third of PSG and stifle visitors’ attempts to play the ball from the depths.
