City dominated the first half, enjoying the better of the chances. It was PSG, however, who struck first blood at the beginning of the second half. Lionel Messi picked up the ball from deep, enjoying fine interplay with Neymar before threading a deflected ball through to Kylian Mbappe, who finished with precision. City hit back twice in the final half-hour, however, to secure a comeback victory. Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored.
