Champions League: Manchester City 2 – 1 Paris St-Germain

Manchester City progressed to the last 16 of the Champions League as group winners by coming from behind to beat Paris St-Germain at Etihad Stadium.

After dominating the first half, City conceded in the 50th minute when Kylian Mbappe converted Lionel Messi’s cross.

But Raheem Sterling poked in a 63rd-minute equaliser and Gabriel Jesus finished a fine team move 13 minutes later to seal a much deserved win.

The result means all four English clubs have sealed progression to the last 16.

PSG, whose build-up was dominated by reports that their manager Mauricio Pochettino could join Manchester United, are also through because of results elsewhere in the group.

Neymar, the third member of the Parisians’ fearsome front three alongside Messi and Mbappe, had a golden chance to score moments before Jesus’ winner but put his effort wide as City goalkeeper Ederson rushed out.
