At 2 p.m., out of 273 votes cast, the result was extremely balanced, tight, undecided.

50.4% of supporters gave their preference for a duel against City, against 49.6% for Dortmund ...

Matthieu, 29 years old and PSG fan "from the cradle", leans in favor of City.

"In 2016 (

), I went to Manchester with friends," says this project manager in marketing, who was present in 2020 near the Park for the victory against ... Dortmund.

We had driven ten hours for that.

Lolo Blanc gave us an unprecedented 3-5-2.

This is not a good memory (

In addition, I am a fan of Manchester United and I would not mind that we offer City and Guardiola.

It would also be a beautiful symbol to take revenge, after having done so with Barcelona and Bayern.

Dortmund, we have already beaten them (

), I was there despite the confinement, it is one of the strongest moments that I have lived.


Revenge to be taken on 1996

Same feeling of revenge in Kévin, 32 years old.

“My sporting preference would be to face Dortmund, because they are a cut below City, but the story would be so beautiful if we took our revenge on Manchester, explains this loyal club since 1997. This season, we beat Barcelona , Bayern, teams which had eliminated us in the past and which we still remember… If we beat City, that would lessen our elimination in 1996 and give a historical side to our course.

Chance made us take our revenge this season, it would be logical that this continues.

The Parisians also took their revenge on Manchester United, who eliminated them in the round of 16 in 2019, during the group stage.

Even if City are among the main favorites for the European title, Kévin thinks PSG capable of a new feat.

“If we beat them, it will add even more prestige to our European course.

We cannot say that we do not deserve our final.

It's been years that we have known disillusions and disappointments in the Champions League, we feel that something is happening this year.

Since last year's Final 8, the team is more united.

Seeing this team suffer and win together is so rare.

When we see that even Mbappé is running an 80-meter run for defensive action.

This season, anything is possible.

For Fred, 55, Dortmund "is less glamorous" and "for the show, it will be good to fall against City".

"The geopolitical rivalry between Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (

) would give an additional dimension to this duel," continues this comic strip merchant.

After eliminating a Spanish club (

It's risky, because City are very strong.

A PSG fan since 1982, Fred also sees another advantage in facing City.

“The players might be more rigorous, focused and serious, against City.

Often when is favorite, we tend to play less well and not keep our rank.


Between choosing heart and revenge or choosing reason, Ronnie, 30, opts for reason.

“Dortmund is the most affordable print run,” says this computer engineer.

If we find them in the semi-finals, it means that they have taken out City and that they are dangerous, but despite everything, City seems to me stronger, more complete.

I prefer to face the weaker team on paper to have more chances of qualifying for the final.
