Man City players celebrating one of their goals

Second half goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez saw City fight back from behind to clinch a superb Champions League semi-final first leg triumph at Paris Saint-Germain.

Trailing at the break to a first-half Marquinhos header, Pep Guardiola’s side staged a stunning turnaround after the break at the Parc des Princes.

Having first drawn level through skipper De Bruyne’s 64th minute cross-cum shot, City then took an all-important lead thanks to Mahrez’s 71st minute free-kick.

On a night of high drama the hosts were then reduced to 10 men when Idrissa Guye was sent off for a blatant foul on Ilkay Gundogan.

And City deservedly held firm to seal a famous and crucial victory – one of the finest in our European history.

“Of course, it’s still only half-time in the tie – but tonight’s result will put us in great heart ahead of next Tuesday’s decisive second leg,” said Guardiola.
