Manchester City welcome PSG to Etihad Stadium Tuesday for a highly-anticipated UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg. After the first leg saw City earn a 2-1 win in Paris last Wednesday with lady luck on their side, getting two goals in the second half that PSG will still wonder how they found the back of the net. The result in the first leg means PSG will have to score at least twice in this one to have any chance of making back-to-back finals. 

Here's how you can watch the match and what to know:

Storylines

Manchester City: Don't expect City to sit back and focus on defending. They want to kill this game off early against a PSG team that does allow some really good looks on goal. Two goals for City would force PSG to score four. While we will see City a bit reserved in the middle, don't expect them to shift their mentality. The key will be to possess the ball and be cautious of the counter. The lead is far from comfortable, but if City's attack plays even an average match, they'll be set.

PSG: All eyes have been on whether Kylian Mbappe would play after picking up an injury in the first leg. He did not play against Lens at the weekend but did make the trip to Manchester on Monday. And late breaking news on Tuesday is that he will be on the bench.  PSG could be in big trouble without him. This feels like a match where he is going to have to score a goal and set one up for the visitors to feel good about their chances. Without him, Neymar will have to stop up in a major way and not only be the team's best player, but carry the load for PSG's missing star as well. 

Prediction

A match filled with goals sees City take an advantage back to England on away goals. Pick: PSG 2, Man. City 2
