We’ve selected the 2012 and 2014 Premier League champions over French giants PSG to impress more in Europe this term. After a perfect start to their 2015-16 campaign, Man City are looking like a formidable force. With the high-profile additions of Liverpool star Raheem Sterling as well as defender Nicolas Otamendi, City have certainly built a strong squad. However, since they started qualifying for the Champions League, they have struggled in the competition, failing to get out the group stage once and reaching the last-16 the past two seasons.

This year may be a different story though but they will firstly have to get through a tough group in the draw, with Italian champions and last year’s runner-up Juventus as well as Europa League holder’s Sevilla and German third placed Borussia Monchengladbach joining The Citizens in Group D. If Kompany, Yaya Toure, Aguero and Silva stay fir then there’s no reason they can’t learn from previous disappointments and defeat these sides, especially with Juve losing some key players over the summer.

Next….
