Pep Guardiola's good form in the UEFA Champions League this season continued with a crucial victory in the semifinal first leg match. Manchester City came from behind to defeat PSG 2-1 in the Champions League final, which could be the end of the road for them after the defeat.
The English team has been outstanding in the second half of the season, having yet to lose a match and only drawing once. Because of their world-class stars Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Angel di Maria, PSG was supposed to thrash Manchester City, but the Citizens were the better team.
PSG would need to win by more than two goals at Etihad Stadium to advance, but it won't be easy for Pep Guardiola's side. Riyad Mahrez, a Manchester City forward, was the star of the night, outperforming any other Manchester City player and causing a lot of problems for the hosts' defense.
He scored the game-winning goal with a freekick, outshining any forward on the field, including Mbappe and Neymar, who are both highly rated. Mahrez is one of the strongest right-wingers in the Premier League, and he is currently enjoying his best season with Manchester City.
As one of the team's best players, he will play a key role in helping Man City win the Champions League this season. Man City will host PSG next week, and based on how Pep Guardiola's team has performed, the French side has no hope of making a return.
