T he most eagerly anticipated match at this early point in the Champions League group stage takes place this Tuesday night, as Paris Saint-Germain host Manchester City at the Parc des Princes. Stay with us on this live blog for all the build-up to PSG vs Manchester City , followed by updates from the match itself. This is the start of our live blog for PSG vs Manchester City , with all our build-up coverage and minute-by-minute updates following from here. As always, the entries nearest the top are the most recent ones. PSG defended brilliantly, and they were always going to cause problems for the City defence with the players they have in attack.

Mauricio Pochettino's plan seemed to work to perfection. That goal by Messi seems to have taken the wind out of City's sails, but you have to take your hat off to the way in which PSG have defended today. Bernardo Silva's across the box found Mahrez on the right, which the City winger then looked to guide back across goal, but Donnarumma got a strong enough hand to it.

Pochettino has opted to withdraw Verratti, who has just picked up a yellow card, and replace him with Georginio Wijnaldum. Neymar and Laporte have been bickering with one another for a while, and the referee has just had to split them up at the halfway line.

A lovely one-two between Messi and Mbappe led to the Argentine firing a left-footed shot into the top right corner. Ederson was left rooted to the spot. That's Messi's first goal for PSG, and what a goal it was. PSG Manchester City. A PSG counter-attack led to Neymar running into the City box, but Kyle Walker put enough pressure on the Brazilian for him to shoot into the side netting.

Manchester City have dominated much of this second half but without having any clear chances to score. PSG are defending really well, though. Donnarumma has come to PSG's rescue once again, with the Italian goalkeeper doing well to get down and stop De Bruyne's shot from the right-hand side of the box. Sterling made a run into the channel and was picked out, with the English forward firing a first-time shot across goal that trickled wide of the right post.

PSG kick off this second 45 minutes. They will be determined to hold on to this scoreline, while Manchester City will be hoping that they can finally find a way past Donnarumma. Paris Saint-Germain dominated the opening period of the match, breaking the deadlock through Idrissa Gueye after just eight minutes, but after the minute mark Manchester City began to grow more into the game and created several chances to score.

Gianluigi Donnarumma has had to be at his best to prevent City from scoring. De Bruyne's deep corner found Ruben Dias, who had got away from Kimpembe, but his header was pushed around the post by Donnarumma. Kevin De Bruyne got a touch on the ball as he went into a challenge with Idrissa Gueye, but the City midfielder's follow-through caught the PSG player's calf. De Bruyne has been shown a yellow card, but the PSG players wanted it to be red.

Mbappe sets up Herrera just outside the box, with the Spaniard's shot being pushed behind by Ederson, and that was followed a short corner that resulted in Mbappe weaving his way through the City defence before squaring it, but Marquinhos couldn't get on the end of it. Grealish laid the ball off for Cancelo on the edge of the box, with the left-back unleashing a shot that Donnarumma brought into his chest. De Bruyne's wonderful cross into the box with the outside of his foot was met by Sterling, whose header came back out off the bar, before Bernardo Silva lifted his shot from close onto the crossbar from a yard or so out.

How Bernardo Silva missed from there The return of Marco Verratti for PSG means that they are having more control in midfield, while he is making some crucial interceptions. PSG look so much better with him in the team. Manchester City are beginning to move the ball around and are looking to switch the play whenever they can. Their patient build-up is not causing PSG to panic just yet, though.

You might have expected Manchester City to be the ones dominating possession, but they are instead looking to counter through the likes of Mahrez, Sterling and Grealish. PSG, meanwhile, are moving the ball around with relative ease. Mbappe cut the ball back from the byline and Messi missed his shot, but the ball fell to Gueye, who took a touch before firing into the top right corner from roughly eight yards out.

PSG have dominated the ball early on, but there haven't been any clear-cut chances created just yet. Ilkay Gundogan is having to miss out on tonight's match due to injury, but the Manchester City midfielder has sent a message of support to his teammates. Lionel Messi has scored a total of 26 goals against English opposition, including six in six against Manchester City. He will no doubt be keen to continue that run tonight, and if he scores it will be his first goal for PSG after failing to find the back of the net in his first three appearances for the club.

Lionel Messi has been named in PSG's starting line-up after missing the club's last two games due to a slight knee injury, and the Argentine playmaker is looking in good spirits ahead of tonight's match. This is a game where it is so hard to predict what result we will see, but let us know what you think the outcome will be. It's worth remembering that Keylor Navas started the opening group-stage match away at Club Brugge. PSG's social media team have put out a video that looks to build up the excitement ahead of tonight's match against Manchester City.

Lionel Messi looks as though he will be able to feature for PSG after missing their last two matches due to a slight knee injury, but Mauricio Pochettino will not be able to count on Angel Di Maria due to suspension. Sergio Ramos is still out injured, but Marco Verratti has returned to the squad list. Benjamin Mendy remains absent due to his court case. Champions League. Minute Mahrez's free kick saved Donnarumma's brilliant night continues, as the PSG goalkeeper pushes away Mahrez's free kick. Minute City looking defeated That goal by Messi seems to have taken the wind out of City's sails, but you have to take your hat off to the way in which PSG have defended today.

Minute Mahrez's shot well saved Bernardo Silva's across the box found Mahrez on the right, which the City winger then looked to guide back across goal, but Donnarumma got a strong enough hand to it. Minute Verratti off for Wijnaldum Pochettino has opted to withdraw Verratti, who has just picked up a yellow card, and replace him with Georginio Wijnaldum.

Minute Tension between Laporte and Neymar Neymar and Laporte have been bickering with one another for a while, and the referee has just had to split them up at the halfway line. Champions League The most expensive football match in the world.
