Manchester City first Champions League finalist after double victory over PSG

Manchester City has qualified for the Champions League final for the first time in history. In the return of the semi-finals, the English were 2-0 too strong for Paris Saint-Germain, the losing finalist of last season.

At Paris Saint-Germain, star player Kylian Mbappé sat on the bench the entire match. The Frenchman was not fit enough. Mitchel Bakker was also not assigned a basic place from trainer Mauricio Pochettino. The Dutch left back, who played the entire game last week, only entered the field in the 82nd minute.

City, which only played a European final once in its history (in 1970 the club won the European Cup II), was already on roses after the first leg. In a dazzling duel in Paris, the English took the win (2-1).

Mahrez important again

The winning goal in that game was shot in by Riyad Mahrez and the French-born Algerian was also important in the return. A bet by Kevin De Bruyne was blocked, after which the ball landed at Mahrez’s feet. He did not hesitate and pushed the ball between the legs of keeper Keylor Navas.
