The Spaniard will be aspiring that his side builds on the decisive win at Chelsea last weekend in the Premier League with another victory in the UCL this mid-week.
A reminder that Man City edged out PSG the last time they faced each other in the semi-final of the UCL last season. The Premier League giant won the Paris Club by 4-1 on aggregate before their disappointing defeat to Chelsea in the final.

So, Guardiola in his press conference, started by providing updates on his team news and he ruled Ikay Gundongan out of the match as Pochettino confirmed later in his press conference that Messi will be available.
However, Guardiola on how he plans to stop PSG's front-three, said "I don't know. They are so good, the talent to control they are so difficult. You have to defend well without the ball and let them run when we have the ball. They are exceptional players, everyone knows it..."

Meanwhile, everyone knows Guardiola to be a very tactical coach and he would have set up a plan to stop them (I.e Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar) but he has chosen not to disclose it during his press conference today.
Nevertheless, everyone expects another thrilling encounter in Paris tomorrow.
