Possible line-ups: Subasic; Toure, Gilk, Jemerson, Mendy; Silva. Fabinho, Moutinho, Lemar; Germain, Falcao.
City is still unbeaten in eight of their last Champions league home games winning five games and drawn three and conceding only five goals. and they have never lost to any French club in any European competitions with all three previous encounter coming against PSG, winning just one and drawn two.
