Manchester City defeated Paris Saint-Germain on Monday to reach their first ever Champions League final.
Pep Guardiola, who reaches the Champions League final for the first time since he won the competition with Barcelona in 2011, will now lead his side against either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final in Istanbul on Saturday, May 29.
It would be recalled that Man City held a 2-1 lead from the first leg at Paris Saint-Germain last week, and Pep Guardiola had said City only know how to approach the game one way, so would be looking to attack and win the second leg rather than sit on their lead.
The Blues were true to Guardiola’s word as they took an early lead through Riyad Mahrez, while PSG who were without Kylian Mbappe went close through Marquinhos and Angel Di Maria.
After the break, a close game was put to bed as Mahrez capped off a superb break involving Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne. That goal which put City 4-1 up on aggregate, saw PSG lose their heads as Di Maria was sent off for a stamp on Fernandinho, and City comfortably saw out the semi-final to book their place in the final in Istanbul against either Real Madrid or Chelsea.
