MANCHESTER CITY have reached their first-ever Champions League final thanks to Riyad Mahrez’s inspired double at the Etihad.
The Algerian forward – who fired in the winner against Paris Saint-Germain last week – scored in either half as Pep Guardiola’s men outclassed the Ligue 1 giants.Riyad Mahrez broke the deadlock at the Etihad in the 11th minute with a low first-time shot[/caption] Mahrez wheeled away in delight after scoring in back-to-back games against Paris Saint-Germain[/caption]
And PSG’s frustrations were evident when Angel Di Maria was sent off in the 69th minute after kicking out at Fernandinho.
PSG were reduced to ten men last week after Idrissa Gueye’s horror tackle on Ilkay Gundogan.
For Mauricio Pochettino, it is more heartbreak in Europe after his star-studded side were no match for the Premier League champions-elect.
City will now face either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final on May 29 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.
