Man City could seal top spot in Group A as they welcome PSG to the Etihad Stadium in the penultimate Champions League group stage clash.

Guardiola's men were defeated in the French capital when these sides met back in September, but the English champions recovered with back-to-back wins over Club Brugge to put themselves in poll position to progress as group winners.

Meanwhile, victory for Club Brugge over RB Leipzig in the other Group A fixture would set up a winner-takes-all clash for PSG in the final group game were Pochettino's side to lose in Manchester, a scenario in which they would be keen to avoid.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Gianluigi Donnarumma is reportedly suffering with a bout of gastroenteritis but could return in time, while Julian Draxler is unlikely to feature after sustaining a muscle injury. Rafinha is also battling a hip injury.

Marco Verratti returned in the win over Nantes at the weekend in a boost for Pochettino, but Presnel Kimpembe is likely to miss the trip.

PSG's 2-0 win over City in September didn't quite make amends for their Champions League semi-final defeat at the hands of the English champions last season, but it showed their ability to get the better of Guardiola's men.

Last season's affair in the last four of the competition was feisty, with Angel Di Maria sent off for a stamp on City midfielder Fernandinho in the second half. Verratti then also accused referee Bjorn Kuiper of swearing at several PSG players as tempers boiled over.

PSG's performances this season as Pochettino aims to strike the correct balance among his expensively-assembled stars haven't quite been convincing.

Their victory over City at the Parc des Princes was predicated on City lacking a punch in the final third, springing forward quickly on the counter-attack and relying on the magic produced from their front three.

Neymar is certainly in better form than he was at the start of the season, but City should be able to tame PSG's threats infront of their home crowd to seal their status as group winners.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 PSG
