Man City headed to Champions League Final after beating PSG
Manchester City is headed to the Champions League Final!
Say it out loud and proud, City fans, as your team has looked sensational throughout the tournament and punched its ticket on Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
Heading into the second leg with a 2-1 lead over Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City FC wrapped things up in the semifinals with a 2-0 win over PSG. With a 4-1 aggregate victory, City indeed will play for the Champions League title.
It was a memorable night for superstar Riyad Mahrez, as he scored both goals in the victory on Tuesday to seal things for the English Premier League giants.
Mahrez found the back of the net in the first half, firing off a brilliant shot in the 11th minute to put his team ahead and provide PSG with even more pressure to try and even up the score.
Then in the second half, Man City scored such a pretty goal to close out the scoring at 2-0 in the 63rd minute. On the counter attack, Phil Foden passed the ball off to Kevin De Bruyne, who then dropped a perfect pass to set up Foden on his left foot. Foden then delivered a beautiful cross for Mahrez to smash the ball past a diving Keylor Navas.

Pep Guardiola exploded in celebration after that shot and he had every right to. For the first time in club history, Manchester City is headed to the Champions League Final. Either Real Madrid or Chelsea awaits.
