          Looking to advance to their first ever Champions League final, Manchester City faced their toughest task yet, travelling to France to take on a PSG side that have already knocked out Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

          The Action: A dominant first half performance saw PSG easily play their way around a low energy Manchester City side, with Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe all looking dangerous on the counter.

          But it was a set-piece where PSG took the lead, with their returning captain Marquinos heading home superbly from a corner in the 15th minute.

          Mauricio Pochettino’s men continued to dominate the half, with City looking out of ideas, but the second 45 couldn’t have possibly been more different.

          Upping the tempo massively and playing the opening stages of the second period, playing almost exclusively in PSG’s defensive third, City finally got their reward with some luck, as a Kevin De Bruyne trademark cross floated over everyone and into Keylor Navas’ net.

          And with 20 minutes to play, Pep Guardiola’s side put one foot in the final, with a complete PSG failure from a free kick seeing Riyad Mahrez’ effort squeeze through a sieve of French wall, before Navas let the effort sneak underneath him.

          The Big Picture: If City can begin the second leg the way they started the first, PSG will have little to no chance, but they still showed plenty of reasons in the first 45 why they could still make back-to-back finals.

          Expected Goals: PSG (1.53) 1-2 (0.89) Man City
