The game promises to be a very entertaining one as it involves two teams that possess very high quality players.

While Manchester City will be hoping to make it two wins out of two, PSG are desperately in need of a win after they played out a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge the last time out.

In this article, we'll be looking at possible ways the two managers could set up their sides ahead of the game. Check it out below:

As for the backline, the absence of Sergio Ramos means that the duo of Marquinhos and Kimpembe will form a central defensive partnership.

Promising youngster Mendes was rested on the weekend may replace Abdou Diallo in the left-back slot while Achraf Hakimi would fill in the other flank. Both full-backs are expected to bombard forward, causing problems for the opposition's defense with their speed, creativity and scoring ability.

In the midfield, Idrissa Gana Gueye is expected to keep his place in the defensive midfield spot while Paredes and Ander Herrera play ahead of him.

As for the attack, it's unsure if Messi is 100% fit, as such, he could be an option from the bench. The trio of Neymar Junior, Kylian Mbappe and Draxler could occupy the various positions up front.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola is also expected to use the 4-3-3 formation, just like his PSG counterparts with Ederson keeping his place between the sticks.

Just like in the Chelsea's game, Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte are expected to form a central defensive pairing while Cancelo and Kyle Walker keep their places as full-backs.

In midfield, Rodri is expected to hold things together from the defensive midfield spot while De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva occupy the other two spots.

Grealish, who's been having a series of excellent performances so far, should start in the left-wing while Ferran Torres and Riyadh Mahrez occupy the center-forward and right-wing-forward positions respectively.
