Fernandinho Delivers Crucial 2-2 Draw For Man City Against PSG
Despite being considered by many as outsiders in the UEFA Champions league, Manchester City progressed to the Quarter Finals.
Under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini, the team have reached their first ever quarter finals and paired against early Ligue 1 champions PSG, many already marked an exit for the English team.
With Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure out through injuries, it was hard to see how Manchester City hoped to fare well at the Park De Princes.
At the end of 90 minutes and the score at 2-2, the tie is in Manchester City’s favor as they know that a goalless draw at the Etihad will see them through to a historic semi final.
Manchester City drew first blood through Kevin De Bruyne who returned just last week after three months on the sidelines and City looked like they were set to go into half time in the lead.
However a horrible pass from Joe Hart to Fernando saw Ibrahimovich intercept and led to what has to count as the easiest goal of the Champions league.
Rabiot then tapped in from a Joe Hart punch to put the Parisians in the lead and City had some fortune of their own as Fernandinho’s deflected shot drew the affair level.
