Manchester City Will Lose To PSG Because Of Pep Over Complicating Things [OPINION]

Pep Guardiola stated on Monday that PSG's front three are unstoppable, just minutes after PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino suggested Manchester City is better suited to win the Champions League. On the eve of the blockbuster re-run of last year's semi-final, the two managers exchanged pleasantries on the eve of the most eye-catching group match of the season.

Pochettino revealed that Lionel Messi will be in the team despite the fact that he has missed two games due to a knee injury. However, the Argentine is leaving it too late to determine whether the superstar will start with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for the second time. Guardiola, who expressed astonishment at Messi's departure from Barcelona this summer, expects City to 'suffer' in Paris, maintaining that City's two-legged win last season is forgotten.

‘How should we proceed?' 'I'm not sure,' Guardiola remarked. ‘I don't know how to stop them with this level of excellence, they're that brilliant.' It's challenging because there's so much skill. We must defend ourselves properly, assist one another, and accept that we will suffer and be in agony. It's all about how you deal with the suffering.'

Guardiola is thought to be debating whether or not to rest star Kevin De Bruyne, who is currently recovering from injury. Guardiola may also rely on Riyad Mahrez to rotate in offensive areas. On Sunday, City travels to Liverpool for another crucial encounter. As they prepare to meet last year's beaten finalists, Pochettino and midfielder Ander Herrera were quick to dismiss ideas that PSG should be regarded favorites to win the competition.
