    Paris SG’s Neymar has either scored (3) or assisted (1) in each of his previous three UEFA Champions League semi-final appearances, whilst he’s had a direct hand in nine goals in his 12 matches against English sides in the competition (5 goals, 4 assists).

    Man City boss Pep Guardiola has said that his team know they are "going to suffer" tonight.

    Speaking ahead of the game, Guardiola said: "We know we are going to suffer and they are going to have chances.

    "All we can do is try to create chances too; I know the weapons they have up front.

    "But at the same time we are in the semi-finals of the Champions League – what do you expect?

    "Are we going to spend 90 minutes thinking how good one player is or another or try to do what we want to do?

    “We are going to concede counterattacks; they have the quality with Mbappé, Neymar, Di María, Verratti, Paredes. With Marquinhos and the keeper [Keylor Navas] too, they have a lot of weapons.

    “I learn from Johan Cruyff: when you arrive at these stages there is only one thing you can do and that is enjoy the game, the responsibility and the pressure.

    "Enjoy the fact that you have not lived [too many] of these situations.

    “Top players enjoy this situation because they take the responsibility.

    "That’s why the greatest win this competition and the greatest clubs win this competition because they play it as a friendly game.

    "That’s what I want to see in my team and that is we are going to do.”

    Manchester City are playing in only their fourth semi-final in their European history after the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1969-70 and 1970-71, and 2015-16 UEFA Champions League – they’ve only gone on to reach the final once, winning their only European trophy to date in the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1970.

    Paris SG are winless in their previous three matches with Manchester City in European competition (D2 L1), only facing Arsenal (4), AC Milan (4) and Juventus (8) on more occasions without ever winning in their history.

    Manchester City eliminated Paris SG in their only previous knockout tie meeting in European football, progressing 3-2 on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final in 2015-16, with Kevin De Bruyne scoring the winner in the second leg at the Etihad.

    And welcome to the live blog for PSG vs Man City!

    Pep Guardiola's Man City travel to the Parc des Princes looking to defeat last season's finalists, PSG.

    This is City's first semi-final under the Spaniard, and they're looking to go all the way and win it!

    Standing in Man City's way of a major European final is former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

    Pochettino – now PSG boss – beat Man City in the quarter-finals of the competition two years ago with Tottenham.

    And Spurs eventually made it to the final but lost the all-English clash against Liverpool.

    But with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at his disposal, PSG could lick their wounds of last years' Champions League final heartbreak and set the record straight.

    If PSG manage to see off Man City in the semis, they'll be worthy victors if they manage to win their first Champions League.

    The Parisians have already seen off Barcelona and Bayern Munich in back-to-back knockout rounds.

    And adding Man City to that list would be a phenomenal European campaign worthy of Europe's biggest prize.

    In terms of team news, Keylor Navas and Marco Verratti are back in contention after returning from injury. 

    But Juan Bernat will definitely miss tonight's clash, meaning Abdou Diallo will most likely start on the left side of the defence.

    And for Man City, Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury in last weekend's Carabao Cup final victory and will start tonight.

    Sergio Aguero was an unused sub in the cup final clash against Tottenham and he'll most likely stay on the bench.

    The teamsheets are due to be released in half an hour so don't go anywhere!
