A dramatic Manchester City's second comeback sinks Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain to a disappointing home defeat. Paris Saint-Germain has suffered a consecutive back-to-back home defeat in the Champions League following a disastrous performance against Manchester City.
Paris Saint-Germain vs Manchester City was predicted by many to be the strongest match of the season due to the quality of both teams. Both teams are owned by oil-rich Arabs who have pumped a huge amount of money to rebuild the clubs.
Paris Saint-Germain reached the finals last season but lost narrowly to Bayern Munich and this season the French club are at risk of getting eliminated in the semi-finals.
PSG now has the difficult task of winning Manchester City with a two goals margin in England. While this task may be possible because of the quality of the PSG team but it's also impossible because Pep Guardiola's Man City knows how to defend a lead.
The victory didn't come on a platter of gold for Man City as they were made to work hard for the win despite conceding an early goal in the first. Marquinhos first-half goal for PSG didn't deter Man City from fulfilling their mission as they came back stronger in the second half and pull off a perfect comeback to win the game 2-1. A beautiful goal by Kevin De Bruyne and a sublime free-kick by Riyadh Mahrez was enough to give Man City the win.
A win which takes their number for the season to 10 wins so far and if they get to 12 wins they will be crowned the Champions League winners.
According to a football Statistics keeping page, Squakwa Football revealed Manchester City are now the first Premier League club to win 10+ matches in a single Champions League.
Pep Guardiola's Man City side is unbeaten in the Champions League this season, winning 10 and drawing one.
Pep Guardiola's Man City could make history by winning the Champions League without losing a single match.
Should Manchester City hanged on to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain and go on to win Chelsea or Real Madrid in the finals they will set another world record.
