Manchester City went through an uncharacteristic stretch following a span during which it suffered just one defeat in 35 matches (three draws), losing twice in three games. The Cityzens appear to have recovered from the lapse as they've posted four consecutive victories, including a triumph over Tottenham on Apr. 25 that gave them their fourth straight Carabao Cup title. Manchester City resumes its quest for another crown on Tuesday, when it hosts PSG in the second leg of the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League semifinals. The Cityzens, who also are on the verge of becoming Premier League champions, hopped in the driver's seat by edging the Parisians 2-1 in the first-leg match last Wednesday.
Kickoff from Etihad Stadium is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network and Paramount+. The latest PSG vs. Manchester City odds from William Hill Sportsbook list Manchester City as a -150 (risk $150 to win $100) and 0.5-goal favorite, while the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Top predictions for Manchester City vs. PSG
The model is leaning over 2.5 goals in Tuesday's matchup between PSG and Manchester City. The Cityzens and their opponents have combined for three goals in five of their last eight matches over all competitions and three straight in the Champions League. Manchester City is in the midst of a stretch during which it has tallied at least twice in six consecutive games in this tournament, while Kevin De Bruyne has scored in three of his four knockout-round contests. Meanwhile, Riyad Mahrez has converted in back-to-back Champions League matches after being held without a goal in his first eight outings.
PSG has been finding the net with frequency of late, recording two or more goals in eight of its last 11 games across all competitions. The Parisians have four players with at least three tallies during Champions League play after Marquinhos scored in the first-leg match against Man City. Kylian Mbappe, who is second in the Champions League with eight goals, traveled with the team after sitting out Saturday's Ligue 1 contest with a calf injury. He is not in the starting lineup, but could be able to come off the bench, possibly providing a late spark that could push the game over the total.
