Manchester City will be raring to go against PSG as Guardiola rested a number of his players this weekend at Crystal Palace. 

The likes of Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva were all unused substitutes at Selhurst Park.

City could progress to the final with just a draw or even a 1-0 defeat, but Guardiola is adamant that his team will look to win. 

The game did, however, come under threat following substantial rain and hail at the Etihad

The temperature was six degrees Celsius an hour before kickoff, with 13 miles per hour winds
