Manchester City travel to France for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
Pep Guardiola claimed his ninth piece of silverware with City as they defeated Tottenham to lift the Carabao Cup on Sunday, but the prestigious Champions League trophy remains absent from the club’s ever-growing cabinet.
City have also all-but secured yet another Premier League title, with the opportunity to claim an historic treble very much alive.
PSG are also searching for a first Champions League trophy, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to reach the final for a second time.
There is also some added fuel to this already-intriguing encounter, with PSG one of the only major European clubs not to join the Super League, while City quickly reversed their decision to sign up last week.
With the highly-anticipated spectacle now quickly approaching, Sportsmail takes you through the all-important information.

Routes to the semi-finals
Mbappe scored an emphatic brace as PSG knocked out holders Bayern Munich in the last-eight
Phil Foden scored a crucial goal as Man City battled past Borussia Dortmund in the last-eight
Paris Saint-Germain certainly haven’t had it easy en route to the Champions League semi-finals.
They started their campaign in disappointing fashion, losing 2-1 in their opener at home to Manchester United.
Last year’s finalists then won all five remaining group games, however, seeing off United and RB Leipzig to top their respective quartet.
After being appointed manager in January, it was Pochettino who has taken charge of the knockout stages, and he instantly hit the headlines with a 4-1 away win at Barcelona in the round of 16, eventually going through 5-2 on aggregate.
PSG then avenged their defeat in the final last year by beating Bayern Munich on away goals, with the score ending 3-3 on aggregate, in what is arguably the standout result of the tournament to date.
As for City, Guardiola’s side have been utterly dominant in the competition to date, with nine wins and a draw from 10 matches, in which they have scored 21 goals and conceded just three.
They cruised to the summit of their group stage, before breezing past Borussia Monchengladback in the last-16.
City then earned a hard-fought 4-2 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund to reach the semi-finals for only the second time in their history.
PSG vs Man City: The odds
Though PSG will come into the clash full of confidence having beaten Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals, it’s City who are favoured by the bookies in the first leg.
The pair have met just three times before, with City winning one and the remaining two matches ending in draws. They last played in 2016, when City claimed a 3-2 aggregate win to progress to the Champions League semi-finals.
City remain on for an historic treble this season, and they are favourite to overcome PSG once again, with odds of 11/10 to win the first leg. PSG are the underdogs at 12/5, while a draw is at 11/4.
