Pep Guardiola’s side struggled for PSG’s impressive early run when they fell behind with Marquinhos’ head, looking from the corner of Angel di Maria after 15 minutes, dominating after the break and turning this first leg tie in Paris on the head.

City, who had threatened before the break when Phil Foden missed a good chance, were better off and got the reward they deserved after 64 minutes when Kevin de Bruyne’s awkward cross dodged everyone on the penalty area and circled beyond PSG goalkeeper Kaylor Navas .

PSG, with Neymar fouling and Kylian Mbappe losing, were in disarray and Riyad Mahrez put City in a good position to reach their first Champions League final when his free-left ball hit the wall to hit Navas seven minutes later.

And to end PSG’s suffering, former Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye was shown a red card for a delay in a serious challenge to Ilkay Gundogan.

Man City’s dream is approaching

Manchester City craved victory in the Champions League as their confirmation is Europe’s greatest strength – and this beautiful display brings that desire closer to the past.

Premier League leaders were forced to show all their qualities before defeating their hosts, who were exhausted after showing the real level in the first half, with Neymar and Di Maria pulling the strings.

Ruben Dias and John Stones were famous when City held firm in the first half, while after the break, as they showed great interest, Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker carried the threat of attack, and the visitors played with great maturity when they re-joined PSG on their own.

Their danger grew all the way and it was not surprising when De Bruyne equalized then Mahrez put them ahead – indeed PSG ended up being beaten and random they can almost feel grateful they lost just 2-1.

The history of the City of the Champions League is full of frustration in the final stages of the competition, often full of rational or unfortunate chaos – not so here.

The two sides meet on the second leg on the 4thth May at the Etihad Stadium.
