Michael Owen expects Manchester City to score at some stage against their Champions League quarter-final opponents Paris St Germain.
This will give the Premier League team a massive boost for the return leg due to the importance of away goals in this competition. Like Chelsea who had their first match at the French capital, City will also be making the short trip for the first leg. The return leg will be at home. Chelsea left themselves a lot to do in the second leg after losing the first 2-1. This will play in the minds of City, as they would want to come home with at least a score draw.
At the same time, Owen does not protect success for his former club Liverpool in the Europa League encounter against Borussia Dortmund. This match marks a return to the Signal-Iduna-Park for Jurgen Klopp. The German manager had a lot of great memories at this ground, but he will be in the opposition dugout for this game. Klopp already showed signs of having this match in full attention, as he substituted Daniel Sturridge with 30 minutes left on the clock against Spurs during the weekend. Despite Liverpool chasing the game, Klopp appears to have felt the need to protect his star striker.
“This is the first time in their history that City have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League and this is a big night for the club. PSG have been knocked out at this stage of the competition for the last three seasons and it would be no surprise to see City make it four,” said Owen about City’s chances.“Liverpool have conceded just six goals in their last 12 Europa League games but this is a top class German side who wouldn’t look out of place in the last eight of the Champions League,” continued Owen about Liverpool’s chances.
