Guardiola weary of Mbappe and Neymar as Manchester City will take on Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals tonight. 

Ahead of the tie, Guardiola has revealed how he has sleepless nights trying to think of a way to stop the deadly duo of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. Neymar has been in fine form for PSG despite spending most of his time on the sidelines through an injury.

City will face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals at Parc des Princes tonight.

Despite missing the majority of the season due to injury, Neymar has been in excellent form for PSG.

Meanwhile, teammate Mbappe has had a fantastic season with the Ligue 1 side and has scored 35 goals in all competitions this season. And City boss Guardiola admits he has been thinking about the duo ahead of the semi.

“They’re too good. I tried to sleep well last night, and that was (only) when I wasn’t thinking of them,” the Spaniard told the press.

“That’s the reality. They’re top players. That’s why they play in that team with the quality they have. We’re ready to try to stop them, defend as a team, play good football and try to score goals,” he added.

City will then host PSG next week at the Etihad for the return leg and the winner will meet either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final.
