The last time PSG and Leipzig met each other in the ongoing competition, the Ligue 1 giants had the upper hand as goals from Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe helped their cause. With Manchester City sniffing around, a slip up against Leipzig will cost PSG dearly.
Meanwhile, Manchester City, last season’s runner-up, can take a big step toward the last 16 by claiming a second successive victory over Brugge. Pep Guardiola’s squad won 5-1 in Belgium two weeks ago and a repeat at the Etihad Stadium would put City in a strong position to qualify.
But City go into the encounter after a couple of difficult results. City’s four-year reign as League Cup holders was ended by West Ham last week and the Premier League champions also had a surprise loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
