Manchester City did a golden thing in the Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain. After the weak first half, it is still rising in the second half. De Bruyne, with a cross falling into the net, Mahrez took care of the spin. Paris Saint-Germain finished the match with one fewer player after Gaye’s red.
Paris Saint-Germain – Manchester City in short:
- Important momentFor more than an hour there was no cloud in the air for Paris Saint-Germain until a cross from De Bruyne skipped everything and everyone in the net. Man City smelled the smell of blood as he advanced after a few minutes. PSG no longer has a response.
- Man of the match: Sure, De Bruyne didn’t play a great first half, but after the break he really got involved in it all. With a good dose of luck he scored an equalizing goal after which he also participated in nearly every City attack.
- SpecialMan City has not scored a goal in the Champions League semi-finals until tonight. This changed at Parc des Princes thanks to Kevin De Bruyne.
Paris Saint-Germain is ahead of City slap
With particularly high expectations, Paris Saint-Germain began a “critical clash” against Man City, led by Kevin de Bruyne. The Parisians were the ones who seemed particularly excited about their Parc des Princes from the first contact with the ball.
Neymar immediately showed himself in the first minutes, and the Brazilian star forward Ederson watched his goal after one handsome goal. The next opportunity was paid: Di Maria drew a corner kick at Marquinhos, who headed the ball hard into the net.
Paris Saint-Germain continued to be the best in the match, with Paredes’ header gone away after half an hour of play. On the other hand, Foden inexplicably detached targeted Navas after a swift counterattack.
22 champions dive into the catacombs of the Parc des Princes with a justified 1-0 score on the scoreboard. Man City clearly needs more movement and speed to dominate the game.
De Bruyne and Mahrez perform completely opposite roles
Guardiola’s motivational speech did not miss its impact as visitors visibly grew into the party. Paris Saint-Germain was unable to keep the ball in the team and Kevin de Bruyne controlled the match.
At first, the Red Devil’s half-bike drove another meter, but a minute later, it was hit. A pass from KDB went through everything and everyone, after which Navas was surprised: 1-1.
Citizens smelled the smell of blood and were looking for more. Paredes made a clumsy mistake and Mahrez got De Bruyne’s approval to apply for the free kick. The Algerian curled past the poorly prepared Paris Saint-Germain wall, and suddenly Man City looked like roses.
At the end of the game, Gueye also received a red card after a foul on Gündogan. Opportunities can no longer be noticed. City will head to Manchester with two very expensive goals away from home, PSG have to work hard next week.
Not Mbappe or Neymar, but De Bruyne was the big man in the first leg
