Manchester City team secured a slender advantage from the first leg in France as Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho away goals earned a 2-2 draw at the Parc Des Princes. The Citizens kept their bid for a top-four finish on track at the weekend with a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion to leave them fourth in the table. They have recorded just two wins from their last six at the Etihad Stadium.
David Silva, Gael Clicy and De Bruyne are all set to come into the starting lineups as they all started last time out. Vincent Kompany and Fernando are sidelined for the Citizens while Yaya Tourè is major doubt. Nicolas Otamendi is a doubt with an ankle problem, but should be fine to feature. Raheem Sterling is sidelined due to injury while Samir Nasri is ineligible.
Paris Saint Germain have already wrapped up the Ligue 1 title but they sare continuing to recording wins after wins. They beat 2-0 Guingamp in Ligue 1 on Saturday despite they rested a number of player. The French club have already triumphed in England this season having put a 2-1 win on the board at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the last round to reach their fourth successive quarter-final.
PSG made nine changes to their side on Saturday, so they will be fresher than their opponents. David Luiz and Blaise Matuidi both miss out due to suspension. Manager Laurent Blanc is sweating on the fitness of Kevin Trapp after the German hobbled off at the interval in the weekend win at Guingamp while Marco Verratti and Javier Pastore will not be fit. The Paris Saint Germain boss could drop Di Maria into midfield, though Benjamin Stambouli is an option in midfield.
Nine of 11 clubs who have earned a 2-2 draw away from home in the first leg of a UCL knock-out tie have advanced to the next round. The last three Champions League knockout encounters between Ligue 1 and English Premier League clubs have all seen the French team eliminate their English counterpart.

Probable lineups
Manchester City: Hart – Sagna, Kompany, Mangala, Clichy – Fernando, Fernandinho – De Bruyne, Yaya Toure, Silva – Aguero.
PSG: Trapp (Sirigu) – Aurier, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Maxwell – Lucas, Rabiot, Motta, di Maria – Ibrahimovic, Cavani.
