Appoint a former Tottenham manager, and it can hardly be a surprise that things suddenly turn a bit Spursy at Paris St Germain.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team were in control at half-time. They were a goal ahead, and much the better side. The few chances Manchester City had created mostly came from errors by the home team, so it wasn’t perfect; but it was pretty darn good. Neymar looked the best player on the pitch, Kylian Mbappe pace terrorised; Angel Di Maria was putting in corners that should have come accompanied by air raid warnings.
PSG (4-3-3): Navas, Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bakker, Gueye, Parades (Herrera 83), Veratti, Di Maria (Danilo 80), Mbappe, Neymar
Subs not used: Kean, Diallo, Rafinha, Rico, Kurzawa, Draxler, Icardi, Kehrer, Sarabia, Dagba
is not yet, of course. Not when Pochettino can lean on such an outstanding forward triumvirate. Yet, make no mistake, this was a huge win.
It was November 21, 2000, when PSG last took the lead in a Champions League tie at home and lost – 3-1 against Deportivo La Coruna – and no English team that has ever won a first leg tie away in this competition has failed to progress. If they go out now, Manchester City will have ended a 47-game run.
What a good team City are, the way they can flip the script like this. Having first looked to have met their match, after half-time they were suddenly brimming with confidence again, pressing higher, measured on the ball and dominating possession, a change of mood epitomised in the 61st minute when De Bruyne came close with a flamboyant overhead kick
Scorer: Marquinhos 15
Booked: Neymar, Parades

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson, Cancelo (Zinchenko 61 ), Dias, Stones, Walker, Gundogan, Rodri, Bernardo, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden

And then it fell apart. Manchester City came out after half-time a different side and credit to them, and Pep Guardiola, for that. Yet PSG’s reaction to this challenge was neurotic. Neymar disappeared – although so did his service – goalkeeper Keylor Navas flapped, the defence crumbled. Mbappe did not muster a single shot at goal, a Champions League first. PSG surrendered two goals in seven minutes to calamitous errors, then had key central midfielder Idrissa Gueye sent off for a horrible challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.
