Manchester City versus Paris Saint-Germain Final Betting Analysis
Both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have played great during the Champions League. Both are excellent striking squads with PSG having a slight advantage because of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Paris may struggle on the defensive side, though. Manchester City goalie Ederson has 6 clean sheets in 9 games. Paris Saint-Germain goalie Navas has just 2 clean sheets in 10 matches played.
If PSG struggles on the defensive end, Neymar and Mbappe’s brilliance won’t matter. The Sky Blues aren’t beatable, but this is setting up for a Man City victory. Expect Pep to come up with the perfect strategy to get one past Navas while helping Ederson grab another clean sheet.
