French news outlet L'Equipe have also offered Neymar and Co a number tips on how to exploit City's weaknesses before the two meet again for a spot in the Istanbul showpiece.

After Marquinhos broke the deadlock from a corner during the first leg, L'Equipe are now urging PSG to play to their strengths and 'attack the box' during corners while targeting City's defensive weak link in Joao Cancelo.

L'Equipe pointed out how Guardiola puts Kevin de Bruyne at the near post while Cancelo was placed at the far post, which allowed Angel di Maria to find Marquinhos during a corner for the Brazilian defender to emphatically head home.
