WATCH: Guardiola discusses PSG threat ahead of Champions League semi-final

Pep Guardiola preview

“It’s almost impossible to control them during the full 90 minutes.

“We have to try to finish to review the team but the quality they have, not just Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe - [Angel] Di Maria and [Julian] Draxler when they play, the quality of the players in [Leandro] Paredes, [Marco] Verratti with the personality they play.

“They are organised at the back, but it’s the semi-final of the Champions League, if you play against Chelsea, Madrid, or just in case another team it’s always difficult.”

MAHREZ PREVIEW

"When you are a young boy you dream about these stages.

"Now, here we are and we have to step up as always, like we play in the Premier League, like in the Carabao Cup, like in the last game against Aston Villa.

"To arrive is difficult but you have to show you deserve to be here and show you deserve to be in the final. That is what we are going to do tomorrow."

POCHETTINO PREVIEW

"I think Manchester City are one of the greatest teams in the world, with, for me, the best coach.

"We know we need to fight a lot tomorrow and next week to beat a great team like Manchester City.

"It is not going to be an easy game for both sides. They have unbelievable players that are difficult to control in 90 minutes and in our side, it is the same."

TEAM news

Form guide

City have won 30 of our previous 33 games in all competitions and come into the game on the back of a morale boosting Carabao Cup final victory of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Premier League leaders are unbeaten in the Champions League this season, winning all but one of our games and reached the last four thanks to a 4-2 aggregate victory over Borussia Dortmund.

PSG are second in Ligue 1 one and have won seven of their last 10 games in all competitions.

One of those defeats came against Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, but the 1-0 loss was not enough to derails Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who progressed on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

Last meeting

City last reached the semi-finals in the 2015/16 season, after Manuel Pellegrini’s side beat PSG in the last eight.

The first leg in Paris ended in a 2-2 draw, with Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho on target for the visitors.

The Belgian gave City a first half lead after Joe Hart saved Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s penalty, but the Swede equalised before the break and Adrian Rabiot tapped in before Fernandinho’s equaliser.

In the second leg at the Etihad, De Bruyne scored a fine goal to give City a 1-0 win on the night, which was enough to send us through 3-2 on aggregate.
