PSG midfielder Marco Verratti: Man City won't offer surprises

PSG midfielder Marco Verratti says they don't expect any surprises against Manchester City tonight.

PSG are at the Etihad stadium for the second-leg of their Champions League semifinal needing to overcome a 2-1 deficit.

Verratti said, "(Pep) Guardiola's style of play is known. He wants to control the game and the pace. He is able to lower the pace when he wants, we just have to concentrate on ourselves.

"We face a great team, but we are too. We deserve to be here and we will fight until the end for the final. We performed well, we have a great team and an excellent coach who brought us here.

"We have already faced some strong teams and City are among them. We have to stay calm and focused. I think they have a small advantage after the first leg but we are ready and we will give everything on the pitch."
