Manchester City ensured it qualified to the Champions League round of 16 as group leaders after beating PSG at Etihad. Despite conceding the first in the game, goals from Sterling and Jesus were enough to seal the win.

Even though PSG set up to play counter-attack football, note that Neymar had a glorious chance to give PSG the lead when the scoreline was at 1-1. Di Maria found the Brazilian with a lovely pass, but Neymar failed to beat Ederson in a one-on-one situation. Unfortunately for PSG, Manchester got the match-winner a few minutes later.

Hakimi should be blamed for Jesus' goal. Note that the right was caught out of position for Manchester City's second goal. Because he failed to mark Bernardo Silva, the Portuguese had enough time to set up the goal. This goal changed the tempo of the game.
