. Citys maiden last-eight appearance in the competition has them up against Laurent Blancs side, who saw off Chelsea 4-2 on aggregate in the last 16 stage.Henry believes PSG are a side who have improved year on year and have a genuine chance of winning the Champions League, but has not ruled out Manchester City causing a surprise if they are on top form. Henry on Arsenal title hopes Thierry Henry calls for unity as Arsenal look to end 12-year title drought Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, Henry said: Its a difficult draw for Man City. Paris Saint-Germain are a solid team and theyve done very well over the past three years.They have been coming slowly but surely, and theyre getting stronger and stronger. We are going to see Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] again in England, and I think PSG are going to edge it. Its a difficult draw for Man City. You need to stop PSGs whole team. Manchester City players celebrate after sealing a 3-1 aggregate win over Dynamo Kiev Its going to be a very, very difficult one and who knows what can happen but they are a team that I think can win the Champions League.If you look at the game against Chelsea, Zlatan got the praise and rightly so because he is the guy that makes that team win.But look at how Thiago Motta played in midfield, how he breaks play and passes that first ball for the two goals, how solid they are at the back, they have a good goalkeeper, and Blaise Matuidi can run for everybody. City have been slipping in the Premier League Then you have Angel Di Maria, who is allowed to play wherever he wants within their structure. So you have your usual suspects like Zlatan, but they have a hell of a team.Manchester City overcame Dynamo Kiev 3-1 on aggregate in the last 16, but are faltering in the Premier League and have fallen 12 points behind leaders Leicester in the title race albeit with a game in hand. However, Sky Sports pundit Henry believes City are a different outfit in Europe, and is looking towards David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure to produce something special in Paris and at the Etihad Stadium in April.You saw a totally different Man City in the Champions League than you saw in the league, and they can raise their game to this type of occasion, he added. City are a different outfit in the Champions League, says Henry Those nights are special and you need the likes of David Silva, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero to turn up, especially against PSG.Man City might not have a lot of the ball, and we know they love to have the ball. They may be struggling with injuries too because Vincent Kompany seems like it could be a long [absence].You need everybody involved and on their game on the night to beat PSG.

.Commissioner Adam Silver said Wednesday it is inevitable that the league will one day take after European sports and have sponsor names on team jerseys.PHOENIX -- Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo made a remarkable catch, tumbling into the photo well to snag a foul ball. And it might have cost the Cubs the game. Josh Collmenter threw seven sharp innings, David Peralta drove in a pair of runs and the Diamondbacks beat the Cubs 3-1 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. The go-ahead run was waved home automatically in the sixth inning after Rizzo came down with the ball in his glove for the out. By rule, if a defensive player takes the ball out of play, each runner is awarded a base. The only run Collmenter allowed was Rizzos 23rd home run of the season, matching his total for all of last year. Collmenter (8-5) gave up just three other hits. "I was able to command the fastball both sides of the plate," he said. "With a lot of lefties in the lineup I was able to pitch in really well, got a lot of popups and ground balls and the defence made some great plays." David Peralta had a run-scoring double to tie it, then came home from third on Rizzos camera well plunge. Rizzo said it was "just instinct" that he lunged for the ball. "I didnt think I would go in (the camera well)," he said. "But it was a little farther then I thought." The Diamondbacks earned their second sweep of the season, first at home. The Cubs have lost 11 of 13 since Jeff Samardzija was traded to Oakland on July 5. Jake Arrieta (5-2), who had a stomach virus the past few days, allowed three runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Cubs. It was a tough series, tough game today," he said. "The challenge really for me was what I had to deal with the last few days, trying to hold fluids down. My body was weak not being able to eat any solid food. Addison Reed pitcched a perfect ninth for his 23rd save in 28 tries.

. The Diamondbacks are 3-0 after the All-Star break for the second time in franchise history. The other was in 2002. The game was scoreless through five innings, then Rizzo lashed the first pitch he saw in the sixth into the seats in the right corner, moving into a tie for the NL homer lead with Miamis Giancarlo Stanton. Rizzo homered twice in the series opener. Arizona scored twice in the sixth, the first on consecutive doubles by Ender Inciarte and Peralta. Peralta scored from third when Rizzo caught Aaron Hills high pop foul as he fell over the bar protecting the camera well near the Cubs dugout. In hindsight, Rizzo might have been better off just letting the ball drop foul. But, he said, "I dont think there is any Cubs fan that wanted me to miss it or any Diamondbacks fan that wanted me to catch it." The Diamondbacks won a challenge in the seventh when Mark Trumbo was called out stealing second. After a review, the call was reversed. Trumbo scored when Peralta singled. Ryan Sweeney made two big catches in centre for the Cubs. The second was the most spectacular, when he ran deep toward the wall to barely flag down Paul Goldschmidts deep fly. Notes: Arizona came from behind in all three games. ... Chicagos Chris Coghlan has hit safely in 16 of his past 17 games. ... The Cubs have Monday off, then open a 10-game homestand with a three-game series against San Diego. The Cubs RH Kyle Hendricks (0-0, 6.00 ERA) makes his second big-league start in Tuesdays opener. The Padres go with LH Eric Stults. Arizona opens a three-game interleague series with Detroit. LH Vidal Nuno starts for Arizona, RH Rick Porcello (12-5, 3.39) for the Tigers.
