Manchester City rally from a goal down to beat PSG 2-1 away in Paris.

PSG took an early lead in first half through Marquinhos who headed in from a corner by Angel Di Maria.

The hosts dominated the better part of the half, creating chances at will as City struggled to get afoot in the half.

A visibly infuriated Pep Guardiola kept shouting orders at his squad as the visitors struggled to contain Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez turned the game for the English side. City’s talisman De Bruyne floated a ball into the area that flew over the players and a moment of indecision by Keylor Navas saw the ball in the net.

Riyad Mahrez sealed the win minutes later with a fantastic free-kick that went through the wall and into the net.

PSG were reduced to 10 men when Idrissa Gueye’s challenge on Gundogan that saw him given the marching orders.

City take on PSG for the second-leg at the Etihad Stadium on 4th May.
