Match background Only this chapter

The top two in Group A meet in north-west England as Manchester City take on Paris Saint-Germain holding a one-point advantage over the French side in the section.

• Goals from Idrissa Gueye (8) and Lionel Messi (74) – the latter's first strike for Paris – gave the French side a 2-0 win at the Parc des Princes on Matchday 2 and a measure of revenge for last season's semi-final, when City won 2-1 in Paris and 2-0 in Manchester.

• The English club, however, have scored 15 goals in winning their other three Group A games, beating Leipzig 6-3 at home and Club Brugge away (5-1) and home (4-1) to climb ahead of Paris, who were held 2-2 at Leipzig last time out. That was their second successive away draw, after their Matchday 1 visit to Club Brugge (1-1), with their other game bringing a 3-2 home win against Leipzig on Matchday 3.

• City will go through if they avoid defeat by Paris or if Club Brugge fail to beat Leipzig in the other Matchday 5 game. City will be confirmed in first place if they win. Paris will go through if they win, or if they draw and Club Brugge do not beat Leipzig, or even if they lose to City and the Belgian side also lose.

Previous meetings
• City reached their first UEFA Champions League final last season with a 4-1 aggregate success against Paris, who struck first in the semi-final first leg at the Parc des Princes on 28 April through Marquinhos (15). Kevin De Bruyne levelled four minutes past the hour before Riyad Mahrez gave City the advantage, Paris ending with ten men after Gueye was sent off for a foul on İlkay Gündoğan.

•  Two more Mahrez goals (11, 63) made sure of City's aggregate win in Manchester on 4 May, and again Paris ended a man short as Ángel Di María was dismissed after tangling with Fernandinho.

• City's first UEFA Champions League semi-final was secured with a win against Paris in the 2015/16 quarter-finals. The first leg at the Parc des Princes finished 2-2, De Bruyne's 38th-minute opener for City overturned by goals from Zlatan Ibrahimović (41) and Adrien Rabiot (59) before Fernandinho's equaliser 18 minutes from time.

• De Bruyne got the only goal in the 76th minute in Manchester as Manuel Pellegrini's side prevailed against a Paris side coached by Laurent Blanc.

• De Bruyne and Fernandinho played in both games for City, as did Di María for Paris. Layvin Kurzawa was an unused Paris substitute in both matches, with Marquinhos on the bench in France before playing 90 minutes in England, where Presnel Kimpembe was an unused replacement.

• Paul Le Guen's Paris earned a goalless draw against a Manchester City side managed by Mark Hughes at the City of Manchester Stadium in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup group stage – City's first match against a French club. City finished first in Group A with Paris third, both sides progressing to the round of 32. Both eventually lost in the quarter-finals, City going down 4-3 on aggregate to Hamburg while Paris were beaten 3-0 over two legs by Dynamo Kyiv.

Form guide
Manchester City

• In 2020/21 City ended a run of three successive quarter-final eliminations by going all the way to the UEFA Champions League final only to lose 1-0 to Chelsea at Porto's Estádio do Dragão on 29 May.

• City beat Borussia Mönchengladbach (2-0 a, 2-0 h), Borussia Dortmund (2-1 h, 2-1 a) and Paris en route to the final. They had finished first in Group C with 16 points, keeping five clean sheets and conceding only one goal – equalling the UEFA Champions League group stage record.

• The goal scored by Dortmund's Marco Reus in the 84th minute of last season's quarter-final first leg ended City's run without conceding a UEFA Champions League goal at 790 minutes, second in the all-time ranking behind Arsenal in 2005/06 (995 minutes).

• City have already conceded six goals in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League, two  more than in their 13 games in last season's competition.

• Champions of England for the seventh time in 2020/21, their third title in four seasons, City also claimed the English League Cup for the fourth season in a row and the eighth overall, equalling Liverpool's competition record.

• This is the Cityzens' 11th UEFA Champions League campaign; they have been involved in the group stage every season since 2011/12 and have reached the round of 16 in eight successive campaigns.

• Pep Guardiola's team are unbeaten in 16 home European matches (W15 D1) since a 2-1 loss against Lyon on Matchday 1 in 2018/19, winning their last nine including last season's round of 16 second leg against Mönchengladbach in Budapest.

• City's record against French clubs is W6 D3 L4; at home it is W4 D1 L1.

• A 3-0 victory at Marseille on Matchday 2 last season ended City's four-game winless streak against French clubs (D1 L3). They won the next three too, including both legs of the semi-final against Paris, before losing at the Parc des Princes on Matchday 2 this season.

Paris
• Runners-up to Bayern München in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League final, losing 1-0 in Lisbon, Paris again reached the latter stages of last season's competition.

• A team coached by Tuchel were first in Group H last season, picking up 12 points to finish level with Leipzig but above them on head-to-head record with Manchester United third and İstanbul Başakşehir fourth. Paris won four of their group games, losing at home to United and in Leipzig.

• With Mauricio Pochettino having replaced Tuchel as coach, Paris got the better of Barcelona (4-1 a, 1-1 h) and Bayern (3-2 a, 0-1 h) in the knockout stages before losing to City in the semi-finals.

• Having lost at home to Bayern in the quarter-final second leg before being held 1-1 at Club Brugge in their first game this season, Paris were without a win in four UEFA Champions League games (D1 L3) before beating City 2-0 on Matchday 2. The Matchday 3 win against Leipzig is one of only three in their last nine (D3 L3).

• This is the French side's tenth successive UEFA Champions League campaign and 14th in total, two behind Lyon's national record.

• Although Paris missed out on the Ligue 1 title for only the second time in nine years in 2020/21, finishing second a point behind LOSC Lille, they did win the French Cup for the record 14th time overall and the sixth time in seven seasons.

• The French side have been victorious in ten of their last 20 away UEFA Champions League fixtures (D4 L6). A 2-1 loss at Leipzig on Matchday 3 last term was the only one in their last ten on the road in the group stage (W5 D4).

• Paris have won three of their 13 games in England (D4 L6), including two in a row, both in Manchester, before last season's defeat at City. They recorded a 2-0 victory at Manchester United in the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg, a tie they lost on away goals (1-3 h) before last season's 3-1 win at Old Trafford.

• Paris have won eight of their 26 games against English opponents, home and away (D8 L10), although the Matchday 2 win against City was only their fourth in their last 13 matches (D3 L6).

Links and trivia
• Pochettino and Guardiola have faced each other 21 times as managers of Espanyol, Tottenham and Paris and Barcelona and City respectively, with the Matchday 2 win only the current Paris boss's fourth compared to 12 Guardiola victories.

• Pochettino's Tottenham side did also beat Guardiola's City in a dramatic UEFA Champions League quarter-final in 2018/19, going through on away goals after a 1-0 home win was followed by a 4-3 defeat in Manchester.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• Chelsea in 2012/13 are the only defending champions to fail to get through a group stage since the UEFA Champions League began. (This record, like the others, includes the seasons between 1999/2000 and 2002/03 that featured a second group stage). In 1992/93, Barcelona were the reigning European Champion Clubs' Cup holders and lost 4-3 on aggregate in the second round to CSKA Moskva.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid then made it three wins in a row in 2017/18, becoming the fourth club to win three or more successive titles in European Cup history, and the first to do it twice.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern München were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

• Bayern's victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final was their 11th successive win in the competition (18 September 2019 to 23 August 2020), setting a new record that they extended to 15 before being held at Atlético de Madrid on Matchday 5 in 2020/21. Bayern themselves (2 April 2013 to 27 November 2013) and Real Madrid (23 April 2014 to 18 February 2015) jointly held the previous best with ten, one more than Barcelona's winning run between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.

Group stage
• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 21 occasions, four more than Real Madrid and Bayern München and six more than Manchester United. Barça also hold the record for the most unbeaten group stage campaigns with 13, five more than Real Madrid.

Fifteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Sébastien Haller for Ajax at Sporting CP on Matchday 1 in 2021/22. That was the fifth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20 and Olivier Giroud did likewise for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage.
