Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City meet in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tonight in a contest that has the potential to be one of the all-time great European ties.
As well as previewing the clash of those two titans, we lace up our gloves for the latest edition of weekly boxing column Beat The Count.
PSG vs Manchester City (8pm, BT Sport)
Two of Europe’s most dominant sides meet in a mouthwatering semi-final, with both PSG and City desperate to claim a long-awaited maiden Champions League success.
Mauricio Pochettino’s hosts, still embroiled in an unusually tight domestic title race, are targeting a second consecutive final after gaining revenge on Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals for beating them last season.
Meanwhile, this is uncharted territory for Pep Guardiola as City boss, with the club reaching the final four for only the second time in their history thanks to a dogged 4-2 aggregate victory over Borussia Dortmund.
Ahead of the clash, we turn the spotlight on City’s departing forward Sergio Aguero, who will be hoping for one final glorious night in Istanbul next month before calling time on his historic spell at the Etihad.
Linked with a number of clubs — including PSG — we consider what the future holds for the Argentine and whether he still has it in his locker to produce regularly at an elite level.
