UEFA Europa League


Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
PSG are next in action on Sunday in Ligue 1 on the road to Rennes. The tough matches keep coming for Manchester City as they travel to face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League.
Paris Saint-Germain send out a statement in the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Manchester City at the Parc des Princes. Idrissa Gueye put the home side ahead in the early stages with a thumping finish from close range. City should have equalised, but Raheem Sterling hit the bar before Bernardo Silva somehow failed to turn home the rebound. Lionel Messi killed off the contest with his first PSG goal, playing a sublime one-two with Kylian Mbappe before finding the top-right corner. Mauricio Pochettino's men secure a massive three points in Group A.
90' + 4' OVER! Mahrez goes for the blast from 20 yards, but he lifts his attempt harmlessly over the bar.
90' + 3' Wijnaldum brings down Mahrez on the edge of the box and hands the visitors another chance to get a late goal back.
90' + 1' SAVE! Mahrez curls a strike towards the bottom-left corner from 25 yards, but Donnarumma gets down quickly to his right to palm it away from danger.
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
Danilo Pereira
I. Gueye
90' Pereira replaces Gueye for the closing stages of the game. Gueye has been outstanding today.
89' Gueye brings down Mahrez in the final third, handing City a free-kick in a dangerous position.
87' Mahrez tries the quick shift on to his left foot after cutting in from the right flank, but his effort is charged down by a wall of blue shirts.
87' Mbappe and Neymar combine in the left-inside channel, but the Frenchman can only steer his cross into the hands of Ederson.
85' PSG have to see out the game now. They do not want to be hanging on against City if they concede a late goal now.
83' City have used the ball well in the PSG half, but have lacked the cutting edge in front of goal that the hosts have enjoyed.
81' Messi has now scored seven goals in five Champions League games against teams managed by Pep Guardiola (five against Manchester City and two against Bayern Munich) – the most of any player in the competition against the current Manchester City boss.
79' SAVE! Silva bends a dangerous cross into the box from the left flank. Mahrez gathers at the back post and fires the ball through the legs of Kimpembe towards goal, but Donnarumma holds firm with a solid stop.
Gabriel Jesus
R. Sterling
78' Sterling is replaced by Jesus in the final third for the visitors.
G. Wijnaldum
M. Verratti

Yellow Card
77' Verratti wipes out Sterling on the charge and goes into the book.
K. Mbappé
74' Mbappe returns Messi's offload with a neat flick before the Argentine does the rest with a sublime finish.
L. Messi
74' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! MESSI OPENS HIS PSG ACCOUNT!!!! 2-0!!! Messi scores his first PSG goal with a super strike into the top-right corner. The Argentine combines with Mbappe following a surging run to the edge of the box. He strikes the return pass from the Frenchman first time with a flourish giving Ederson no chance. Surely that will secure the three points for the home side.
72' Mahrez swings a corner into the box from the right flank. Marquinhos continues his impressive outing with a clearing header away from Dias.
71' WIDE! Foden cuts a low ball back towards De Bruyne on the edge of the box, but his curling right-footed strike travels wide of the left post.
P. Foden
J. Grealish
68' Foden replaces Grealish down the left flank for the visitors. It has not been Grealish's night.
67' Mahrez tries to release the run of Grealish in the box, but the PSG defence are committed to halt his progress. The flag goes up for offside anyway.
66' SAVE! Mahrez cuts inside from the right flank on his left foot and he shapes to shoot. However, his effort is deflected and rolls into the hands of Donnarumma.
64' CHANCE! Neymar has space to break down the right flank and he shapes to shoot, but pressure from Walker forces his effort wide of the target.
62' Neymar returns to the field and appears to be fine.
61' Neymar goes down under little contact from Rodri and stays down. He receives treatment on the field and the game is halted.
59' Cancelo swings a dangerous cross into the box for the visitors towards the run of De Bruyne. The ball just evades the Belgian and Donnarumma punches it away before Herrera ensures that PSG clear their lines.
56' Grealish twists and turns in the final third and aims for goal with a right-footed shot, but his effort is blocked by Marquinhos.
54' SAVE! De Bruyne makes another dangerous run into the right-inside channel as Mahrez releases the Belgian into space. He fires low and hard towards goal, but Donnarumma makes the stop with his legs.
51' De Bruyne steers a cross into the box that is spilled by the onrushing Donnarumma. Sterling tries to react, but the Italian smothers the ball before the England man can take possession.
49' Walker sends De Bruyne into the right-inside channel, but Kimpembe does well to block his cross into the middle with Sterling lurking.
47' WIDE! Sterling latches on to a precise offload from Cancelo in the left-inside channel, but the forward skews his left-footed strike wide of the right post.
46' We're back under way at the Parc des Princes.
Mauricio Pochettino will be satisfied with the scoreline and his side's defensive performance. Once again their forward three players are not quite clicking, but they will have opportunities in the second half on the counter to expose City should they remain ahead.
Paris Saint-Germain hold a 1-0 lead over Manchester City at the break in their Champions League Group A clash. Idrissa Gueye fired the home side ahead from close range, converting a cutback from Kylian Mbappe. City should have levelled the scores, but Raheem Sterling hit the bar with a close-range header before Bernardo Silva failed to convert the rebound from two yards. The visitors have played well, but are behind at the interval.
45' + 3' Kimpembe stretches to clear ahead of Sterling and looks to have suffered an injury, but he soon gets to his feet.
45' + 2' Messi attempts to push forward, but he is brought down by Walker. PSG cannot use the free-kick to their advantage, failing to capitalise on a useful position.
45' There will be four minutes of added time.
44' Hakimi has to be on the spot at the back post to clear a dangerous cross from Mahrez away from Grealish. PSG have been solid at the back thus far.
43' SAVE! City win a corner on the left flank that De Bruyne whips deep to the back post. Dias attacks the delivery and steers a header towards goal that Donnarumma has to palm behind low to his left.
42' Gueye remains on the field for now, but Wijnaldum is going through a warm-up on the sideline.
41' Gueye appears to be in pain on the deck and may have to be withdrawn. 
K. De Bruyne
Yellow Card
39' De Bruyne stretches in a tussle for the ball with Gueye and catches him on the ankle. The Belgian goes into the book.
38' CLOSE! PSG take the corner quickly and Mbappe makes a move down the left-inside channel and fires a low ball across the face of goal. Marquinhos tries to stretch, but it just evades the Brazilian in the middle.
38' SAVE! Mendes releases Mbappe down the left flank and he cuts the ball back to Herrera. The Spaniard shoots first time, but Ederson is alert to turn his effort over the bar.
36' Mendes is back on his feet and the game resumes.
36' Mendes is down for the home side and requires treatment on his calf before the game can continue.
35' OVER! Messi plays the ball to Mendes in acres of space down the left flank. The left-back works a pass towards Neymar, who takes a touch before striking on his right foot. However, the Brazilian blazes his attempt well over the bar.
34' Silva twists and turns down the right flank and opens up space for a low cross, but Donnrumma does well to gather the deflected delivery.
33' OFFSIDE! Mendes releases Mbappe in the box and the flag remains down. He completes an offload to Messi, who lifts his strike over the bar. However, the flag eventually is raised against the Frenchman earlier in the move.
32' SAVE! The visitors work the ball well in the final third before Cancelo lines up a blast from 25 yards that Donnarumma has to beat away from goal.
30' City are finding success in the final third and have PSG penned back in their own half. The visitors are just lacking a cutting edge.
28' City press once more and Silva works the ball to Sterling, but the forward cannot control it with his back to goal before PSG scramble it behind.
26' HOW HAVE CITY NOT SCORED? The visitors should be level, but Silva misses from two yards out. De Bruyne lifts a dangerous cross into the box that Sterling attacks. His header hits the bar and then deflects off Donnarumma. Silva is on the spot to pounce on the rebound, but his effort strikes the underside of the bar before he fails to connect on the follow-up on the slide.
João Cancelo
Yellow Card
24' Cancelo goes into the book for bringing down Mbappe on the charge.
22' Messi tries to release the run of Neymar in the left-inside channel, but Walker reads the danger and gets there ahead of the forward to make the interception.
20' Mendes has to make an important intervention at the back to clear a dangerous low cross from Cancelo away from Silva in the box. City will win a corner down the left flank.
18' Grealish collects the resulting corner and tries to beat the challenge of Verratti and goes down. However, the referee only points for a throw-in.
17' Mahrez has another probe down the right flank, but Kimpembe is there and deflects the ball behind for a corner.
15' Mahrez raids down the right flank and digs out a cross on his right foot. Donnarumma has to stretch to knock the ball away from Sterling and Grealish in the box before Marquinhos works it out of trouble.
12' City are continuing to play their possession game. The visitors will not be too deterred by conceding the early goal given their form this season.
10' The home side have the crucial lead in the contest and can now relax into their natural game. Mbappe and Messi now have license to attack with freedom in the final third.
I. Gueye
8' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! GUEYE BLASTS PSG AHEAD!!!! 1-0!!!!!! The home side take the lead through Gueye from close range. Mbappe latches on a precise ball from Hakimi down the right flank. The Frenchman finds space and delivers a dangerous low cross into the middle. Neymar fails to connect, but Gueye latches on to it before hammering a right-footed strike into the top-right corner. The perfect start for PSG.
6' Messi has his first foray forward for the home side, but he opts for the offload to the left flank for the run of Mendes rather than an early strike.
3' Cancelo tries to send Grealish down the left flank, but the England man is flagged offside as he collects the ball.
2' City win a free-kick down the left flank that De Bruyne whips into the box, but Marquinhos rises to clear the danger for the hosts.
1' We're under way at the Parc des Princes.
Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City will meet for the sixth time in this game, while the French side are still looking for their first win in this fixture (D2 L3). Only against Juventus (8) have Paris Saint-Germain played more games in European competition without winning.
City have made two changes from their win over Chelsea last time out. Both come in the final third as Foden and Jesus both drop to the bench. Sterling and Mahrez get the call to replace the duo alongside Grealish in the City attack.
PSG have made four changes to their side from their win over Montpellier at the weekend. Donnarumma returns between the posts to oust Navas. Mendes comes into the side at left-back to replace Diallo, who drops to the bench. Angel Di Maria is out, allowing Messi to slot back into the final third. Verratti also returns to the fold in place of Paredes in the middle of the park.
MANCHESTER CITY SUBS: John Stones, Nathan Ake, Gabriel Jesus, Zack Steffen, Ferran Torres, Fernandinho, Scott Carson, Phil Foden, James McAtee, Josh Wilson-Esbrand.
MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo; Bernardo Silva, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne; Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez.
PSG SUBS: Keylor Navas, Leandro Paredes, Mauro Icardi, Danilo Pereira, Colin Dagba, Georginio Wijnaldum, Layvin Kurzawa, Abdou Diallo, Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer, Eric Ebimbe, Alexandre Letellier.
PSG (4-3-3): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye, Marco Verratti; Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar.
City prepared for their showdown with PSG with a brilliant win over Chelsea at the weekend. Guardiola's team controlled the contest and never allowed the Blues to settle before Gabriel Jesus' strike secured the three points. They began their Champions League campaign with a 6-3 hammering of RB Leipzig, which highlighted their excellence in the final. However, they will need the resilience of their Premier League form tonight against a potent PSG attack featuring Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
PSG will have their minds firmly set on revenge after losing to City in the semi-finals of the Champions League last season, suffering a 4-1 aggregate defeat. The French side lost their composure over the course of the second leg and were put to the sword by Pep Guardiola's team. Their new campaign began poorly with a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge on the road. Mauricio Pochettino cannot afford another setback even though his side have been in prime form in Ligue 1, winning their eighth game in a row at the weekend against Montpellier.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League Group A clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City at the Parc des Princes.
