Manchester City 2 – Paris Saint-Germain 0: Next round awaits for Cityzens, following home win against the Parisians

Manchester City vs. Paris Saint-Germain

PSG failed to deliver a win in either of their games with Man City over two legs, in their Champions League semifinal fixtures. After 90 minutes of play, the final result was 2-0 to MCFC, and with the first match ending with a 2-1 victory for Pep Guardiola's men, they go through convincingly. With this triumph, Man City will fight in the final of the Champions League to win the title of European Champion.

 

Man City started the game well, with Riyad Mahrez giving Cityzens the lead at the 11 minute mark, to take a 1-0 lead into half time.

Man City continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to Riyad Mahrez finding the net again at the 63 minute mark and seeing the game end 2-0.

 

For Man City, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero, came on for Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden. PSG brought on Moise Kean, Julian Draxler, Colin Dagba, Danilo Pereira and Mitchel Bakker, to replace Mauro Icardi, Ander Herrera, Alessandro Florenzi, Leandro Paredes and Abdou Diallo.

The referee booked Olexandr Zinchenko and Kevin De Bruyne from Man City. PSG had the worst of it though, with Ander Herrera, Marco Verratti, Presnel Kimpembe and Danilo Pereira seeing yellow, and Angel Di Maria then sent off with a red.

With this win, Cityzens has only the final of the Champions League to become the new European Champion of the season.
