Paris Saint-Germain is set for yet another arduous UEFA Champions League tie this season as it will take on Manchester City in the semifinals later this month.
For former Brazilian forward Rivaldo, he is much looking forward to what this tie will bring. More so, he is anticipating how much success PSG’s main star-studded attacking trio will go on to have over the course of the two matches.
Rivaldo spoke further to Betfair on why PSG’s Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria may decide this tie.
“For me, these are the two teams in better condition to lift the trophy this season which means we should have a thrilling semi-final with the French team possessing a really threatening attack with Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria,” Rivaldo said.
“Pep Guardiola is desperate to finally win the Champions League with City, but I think it won’t be easy for his team to reach such goals as PSG – as well as the finalist from the other tie should they get past the French outfit – won’t be easy to dominate.”
These three PSG star talents have been pivotal to the side’s success in all competitions this season. Mbappe has recorded key goals in PSG’s biggest matches this season while Di Maria continues to regularly chip in with much-needed assists. And for Neymar, the Brazilian forward has had his way in doing both, such as with his eight total goal contributions in Champions League play this season.
It will certainly be noteworthy to see on how these three attacking players will perform in the upcoming tie against Manchester City.
