Manchester City vs PSG confirmed lineups as Icardi replaces Mbappe Champions League semifinals second leg

Manchester City host Paris Saint-Germain in the return leg of their Champions League semi-final tonight, with Pep Guardiola’s team aiming to reach the final of the competition for the first time.

The English side hold a narrow one-goal lead following last week’s first leg in Paris but scored two away goals at the Parc des Princes in a stunning second-half turnaround.

Having already secured the Carabao Cup and after moving one win away from a third Premier League title in four seasons on Saturday, City are also hoping to keep their bid of winning three trophies this season alive.

Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG showed their two sides during last week’s first leg, impressing in a dominant first-half display before losing control and discipline as City overran them in the second.

Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns coming into this game. Striker Sergio Aguero returned to the starting line-up against Crystal Palace on Saturday after he had been out with a knee injury.

Kylian Mbappe had been an injury doubt for the visitors after picking up a calf injury and missing tonight’s clash. Moise Kean was tipped to replace him in the starting line-up but Icardi gets the nod.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden

Paris Saint-Germain XI: Navas; Florenzi, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Diallo; Parades, Herrera, Verratti; Neymar, Icardi, Di Maria
