When is the match? How to watch it?
PSG vs Manchester City is scheduled for a 8pm BST kick-off at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Tuesday September 28.
The match will be televised on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 7pm. BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match via the BT Sport app or website.
PSG vs Manchester City Betting Preview
PSG cannot afford to let more points in the competition slip after a disappointing 1-1 opening draw to Club Brugge, and pressure will mount on Mauricio Pochettino if they fail to get anything from Tuesday’s match at the Parc des Princes. They have a 100 per cent record in Ligue 1, winning all eight of their games and scoring 22 goals in the process, but most of these wins have been far from convincing.
Despite failing to sign a Sergio Aguero's replacement, Manchester City have impressed so far this season and are second in the Premier League following their dominant 1-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday. They kick-started their Champions League campaign with an entertaining 6-3 win over RB Leipzig at Etihad Stadium a fortnight ago.
The last time the sides met at the Parc des Princes, in last year's Champions League semifinals, it ended 2-1 to Manchester City. The Cityzens also won the return leg at Etihad 2-0.
Despite playing in front of their own fans, PSG are the underdogs and are priced at 28/13 to win this clash with 10Bet, while Man City are 11/8 to win with BetVictor. The draw at 13/5 with William Hill looks enticing.

Paris Saint-Germain (4-3-3): Navas; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Gueye, Paredes, Herrera; Draxler, Mbappe, Neymar
Lionel Messi has trained ahead of the game and is expected to make the PSG squad. He's 50-50 to start. Should the former Barcelona star go on the bench, Julian Draxler will start in the front trio alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. Anorther alternative is Mauro Icardi, while Angel Di Maria is suspended. Marco Verratti - who hasn't played since September 5 - is also likely to be in the squad but Idrissa Gueye, Hector Herrera and Leandro Paredes are expected to start in the middle of the park. At the back, with Sergio Ramos still out through injury, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe will be the starting centre backs, with Achraf Hakimi and Aboud Diallo as full backs. Between the posts, Keylor Navas could keep Gianluigi Donnarumma out of the team for now.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; B. Silva, Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Torres, Grealish
Ilkay Gundogan is definitely out, while John Stones is working his way back towards full fitness. Phil Foden started against Chelsea at the weekend, and should make room to Ferran Torres who was rested at Stamford Bridge. The likes of Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez are likely to complete the "tridente", with Raheem Sterling a viable back-up option. In midfield, Fernandinho may be considered for a start given Rodri's recent fitness woes, while Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker will start as full backs.
PSG vs Manchester City Betting Tips
PSG's home record in the group stage is generally excellent: it reads W11-D3-L1 over the past five seasons. During the same period, Man City have failed to win more than half of their Champions League away matches in group stage under Guardiola. A high-scoring draw seems likely, so we back the 2-2 scoreline in the Correct Score market.
