    On that note, that's it from Sportsday but you can follow BBC Sport's live text and radio commentary from the Champions League quarter-finals first legs tonight via the website or wireless as Paris Saint-Germain host Manchester City and Wolfsburg face Real Madrid.

  2. 'We're not coming to Paris for a 0-0'

    PSG v Man City, Champions League QF first leg, 19:45 BST

    When it comes to the money stakes, you don't get many richer football clubs than Manchester City and Paris St-Germain but who's stronger on the pitch?

    That's a question that will get answered in the Champions League quarter-final between them, with the first leg tonight at the Parc de Princes. 

    "We are not coming to Paris to draw 0-0. We'll play our usual way," said City boss Manuel Pellegrini.

    "Both teams have a chance to continue to the next stage and that chance is 50-50 for each team."

  3. Take stat

    PSG v Man City (19:45 BST)

    How much you should read into stats is debateable but here are some in the build-up Manchester City taking on Paris St-Germain in the Champions League tonight:

    • Only once (in six games) has an English club beaten PSG at the Parc des Princes in European competition. It was Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in September 2004 (3-0).    
    • The last three Champions League knockout encounters between Ligue 1 and Premier League clubs have all seen the French team eliminate their English counterpart.
    • Manchester City have kept fewer clean sheets than any other of the 2015-16 quarter-finalists in this season’s Champions League (1 in 8 games).
    • No team has scored more goals than Manchester City in the final 15 minutes of games in the Champions League this season (6).
  4. PSG v Man City

    Champions League QF first leg, Wednesday, 19:45 BST

    Paris St-Germain boss Laurent Blanc does not believe his side are favourites in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City, but says City are "behind" the French champions in Europe.

    "Manchester City had the same project a bit before Paris St-Germain," said the former Manchester United defender.

    "They managed to win their domestic league, which is not an easy task, and some other titles, but maybe in Europe maybe they're a bit behind us."

    He added: "Maybe England is more competitive but I don't see many English teams in the semi-finals of the European competitions over the last five or six years.

    "Maybe they have reached a further level in terms of fatigue."

  5. 'We'll try to annoy Real Madrid'

    Football

    Wolfsburg are in their first Champions League quarter-final and will host Real Madrid in the first leg of their last eight tie.

    The German club's coach Dieter Hecking says "motivation won't be a problem" for his side.'

    "We have a big chance to perform on a great stage. Nobody thought we could get this far," he said.

    "Real Madrid have a great squad with top-class players. They are one of the favourites for the title and one of the top clubs in Europe.

    "But we will try to annoy them and I think my team can do that."

    (Hopefully, they won't resort to the sort of methods they used in the picture from training going into the match)

  6. Wolfsburg tie "like a final"

    Football

    Real Madrid are going into their Champions Leaue tie at Wolfsburg on a high after a win over arch rivals Barcelona in La Liga last weekend.

    However, Real coach Zinedine Zidane says his side will treat the quarter-final first leg in Germany "like a final".

    "We cannot relax. We are not untouchable and Wolfsburg are able to hurt us," said Zidane.

    "Wolfsburg have fought hard and deserve to be here. It will be a tough match but we are well prepared."
