PSG's wounds from last season's Champions League semi-final loss to City will still be raw, and their chances of topping the group have already been shattered after a 1-1 draw with Club Brugge on the opening day.
PSG can take heart from the fact that they are in excellent domestic form, having won their eighth match in a row on Saturday, and Lionel Messi is expected to play after returning to training.
Here is my predicted line-up for the match.
GOALKEEPER & DEFENDERS:
Donnarumma (GK): You'd think Keylor Navas would be the backup goalkeeper eager for a chance in Europe, but Donnarumma is in desperate need of playing time.
Hakimi (RB): In the French capital, the Moroccan has had an immediate effect.
Diallo (LB): The 25-year-old has had a strong season and is looking forward to shutting down Riyad Mahrez.
Kimpembe (CB): To prevent a threatening Man City attack, the Frenchman will have to be at his best.
Marquinhos (CB): At the centre of PSG's backline, he is a powerful presence.
Gueye (CM): Gueye's enthusiasm will be crucial against a Man City team that wants to get the ball moving quickly.
Paredes (CM): PSG's midfield will be led by the Argentine, and his ball-handling will be crucial.
Ander Herrera (CM): So far, Georginio Wijnaldum has failed to live up to expectations at PSG, and Herrera is set to keep his starting spot.
Messi (RW): The Argentine's return to full training has given PSG a lift, and tonight may be the night he finally arrives at the club.
Neymar (LW): The 29-year-old usually enjoys large-scale Champions League matches, so it will be intriguing to watch how he connects with Messi against such high-calibre opposition.
Kylian Mbappe (CF): This season, the Frenchman has been in superb form, and his quickness might be the difference between them and Man City.
