Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez score to cancel Marquinhos opener as City battle back to beat PSG in their first leg of Champions League Semi-final
Manchester City fought back from a goal down to win 2-1 away at PSG in their Champions League semi-final first leg.
Pep Guardiola's side couldn't cope with PSG's sharpness in the early stages of the game and the hosts to the lead when Marquinhos scored a glancing header from Angel di Maria's corner after 15 minutes.
Man City missed a great chance before the break as Phil Foden was through on goal but shot straight at Kevin Navas.
The visitors equalised in the 64minutes when a stagnant Keylor naval watched Kevin de Bruyne's dangerous cross hit the back of the net.
Riyad Mahrez made it 2-1 seven minutes later from a free-kick as PSG, with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe struggled to find their rhythm.
And to compound PSG's woes, former Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Ilkay Gundogan.

"There's still a long way to go." - Kevin de Bruyne speaking after their away win at PSG
"They are so incredibly dangerous with Mbappe." - Pep Guardiola
PEP 💬 They're so incredibly dangerous with Mbappe in behind. But we found the goals and could've scored more. Just half of the job done. If we play shy and not who we are, anything can happen. But if we play who we are, maybe we have the chance to reach the final. pic.twitter.com/AV0Hvkg8FO— Manchester City (@ManCity) April 28, 2021
