Manchester City scored twice in the second half to take control of their Champions League semi-final tie against Paris Saint-Germain, thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.


Mauricio Pochettino, who knocked Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City out in the quarter-finals with Tottenham in 2019, looked set to do so again in the first half, when his PSG captain Marquinhos headed the hosts into a deserved lead and Kylian Mbappe and Neymar caused all sorts of problems.

After the break, City improved significantly and, after De Bruyne’s cross crept in past Keylor Navas, Mahrez’s free-kick flew through the PSG wall and into the net to give City a 2-0 lead over last season’s finalists.
