6:33 pm
welcome along to sportsday and it's another champions league week across europe. the standout tie is in the french capital tonight — paris st germain against machester city. el cashico is one of the labels given to this meeting of two of the richest clubs in the world. and that's not the only tie that catches the eye. austin halewood can take us through it all austin, man city edged their semifinal against psg last season before losing to chelsea in the final. how's it looking this time? there were so close last time because we know that winning the champions league has long been pep guardiola's ambition since arriving in manchester. they nearly did it, didn't they, last season butjust lost out to chelsea in the final.
6:34 pm
well, as you say gav, city have strengthened. they paid a whopping £100 million forjack grealish — they're hoping he might be the key to take them one step further this season. however, psg could be their toughest opponents along the way. they, of course, made the standout signing of the summer, by bringing lionel messi to paris. but it's not really gone to plan so far. he's struggled with some fitness issues. he's only played 90 minutes once, and he's still yet to score. but, if there's anyone who knows just what the little magician is capable of, then it's pep guardiola. together they had one of the most successful player—manager combinations of the modern era at barcelona. they won 14 trophies together, in four years. but since pep left the club, messi's become a bit of a thorn in his side. he's scored six goals in four champions league games against teams managed by guardiola, the most of any player in the competition. and now, of course, he's got these two alongside him. world cup winner kylian mbappe
6:35 pm
and brazilian superstar neymar. they've not quite fired yet, but all of paris will be desperately hoping tonight is the night that they do. well, you can listen to it all unfold on bbc radio 5 live. 0ur football correspondent john murray is in paris for us. it is just it isjust a it is just a few months since it manchester city were last here for the first leg of the champions league semifinal, so a different matter this time when it is a group match. it matter this time when it is a group match. , ' matter this time when it is a group match. , , .,, ., , , match. it is different, obviously not the be _ match. it is different, obviously not the be all _ match. it is different, obviously not the be all and _ match. it is different, obviously not the be all and end - match. it is different, obviously not the be all and end all, - match. it is different, obviously not the be all and end all, they| not the be all and end all, they have to win this game, but again you want to set the tone, playing against the best players and something players will be looking forward to. such an exciting game the first time, first half i thought manchester city did not really come out, the rabbit a bit unsure, now they will be ready for them. but fantastic players, fantastic occasion. fantastic players, fantastic occasion-— fantastic players, fantastic occasion. , ., , ., occasion. this time round, they have made a number _ occasion. this time round, they have made a number of _ occasion. this time round, they have made a number of additions. - occasion. this time round, they have made a number of additions. only i occasion. this time round, they have made a number of additions. only a | made a number of additions. only a coule, i made a number of additions. only a counle. i am _ made a number of additions. only a couple, i am guessing _ made a number of additions. only a couple, i am guessing lionel- made a number of additions. only a couple, i am guessing lionel messi|
6:36 pm
couple, i am guessing lionel messi and that is the one everyone is waiting for to see if he will be fit and we all want to see him on the pitch and will be incredible if he is. he is not going first psg at the moment but world—class player and looking forward to it. fine moment but world-class player and looking forward to it.— looking forward to it. one of city's strenath looking forward to it. one of city's strength over _ looking forward to it. one of city's strength over the _ looking forward to it. one of city's strength over the last _ looking forward to it. one of city's strength over the last couple - looking forward to it. one of city's strength over the last couple of. strength over the last couple of seasons have been the defence. this is almost the ultimate test if you have a scenario where it is messi, killian mbappe and neymar. you have midfielders, players _ killian mbappe and neymar. you have midfielders, players from _ killian mbappe and neymar. you have midfielders, players from wide - midfielders, players from wide areas, they have players who can punish you all over and theyjust have to be a team performance from the front. i think if the setup is correct, pressing from the front, everyone gets their position is right and distances that could be the difference and i think manchester city have got it. beautiful evening in paris, coverage on five live and i feel it is one of the champions league nights were almost anything could happen.
6:37 pm
absolutely, should be a real cracker. coverage from 7pm tonight on 5 live. also an opportunity for liverpool to assert their dominance. absolutely, the will assert their dominance. absolutely, they will want _ assert their dominance. absolutely, they will want to _ assert their dominance. absolutely, they will want to build _ assert their dominance. absolutely, they will want to build on _ assert their dominance. absolutely, they will want to build on that - they will want to build on that really impressive opening when. —— opening win. yeah, liverpool will be looking to back up that impressive comeback win against ac milan, a few weeks ago. just like city they're on their travels too. they're away in porto tonight, which means a return to his hometown club for forward diogo jota. he's been at liverpool forjust a year now since joining from wolves and despite being tasked with the difficultjob of breaking up one of the world's best front three in salah, mane and firmino, jota's managed to establish himself as a vital part ofjurgen klopp's side. obviously i knew they were one of the best_ obviously i knew they were one of the best tree areas, attacking trio is, in _ the best tree areas, attacking trio is, in the — the best tree areas, attacking trio is, in the world, but i never thought— is, in the world, but i never thought about coming and taking anyone's— thought about coming and taking anyone's place. i thought about coming — anyone's place. i thought about coming and giving my best in

6:39 pm
so he's confident, gav, but you have to think, after that really disappointing defeat to young boys last time out, this is a game united, and solskjaer, really have to win. it really will be, lots to look forward to for that one. thank you very much indeed. liverpool players will wear black armbands tonight in their game at porto, following the death of former striker roger hunt. the 1966 world cup winner has passed away at the age of 83. he won 34 caps for england and scored three of his 18 international goals in the 1966 tournament, where he played in every game. he also scored 244 league goals for liverpool, which is still a club record. he won the league title with them twice in 1964 and 66 and the fa cup in between. though he was never honoured to the extent of some of his england team—mates, to the liverpool fans he was known as "sir roger". the current liverpool boss, jurgen klopp has paid his tributes, saying...
6:40 pm
liverpool's overall record goal—scorer ian rush said... "very sad to hear of the passing of sir roger hunt, someone i would always look up to. he was a fantastic goal scorer and a true gentleman on and off the pitch." and this from another former liverpool striker, john aldridge. we have had some squad announcements. gareth bale will miss games against czech republic and estonia next week with what has been described as a significant hamstring tear. he had been due to win his
