1 - 2
Marquinhos (15)
K. De Bruyne (64)
R. Mahrez (71)
Parc des Princes


That's all for today, goodbye! 
City take a huge advantage into the second leg with their two away goals, with PSG having a lot of work to do at the Etihad. City could wrap up the Premier League before then though if results go their way at the weekend, starting with a win over Crystal Palace. As for PSG, they host Lens before travelling to Manchester.
City come from behind to win the first leg of the semi-final 2-1. PSG dominated the first half and took the lead when Marquinhos glanced in Di Maria's corner. After the break though, it was all City. De Bruyne pulled them level when a cross deceived everyone and nestled into the back of the net before Mahrez curled a free-kick through PSG's wall and past Navas. PSG also saw Gueye sent off after a very late challenge on Gundogan.
90' + 4' Silva squares the ball into De Bruyne and he lets it roll across his body before drilling a shot on goal. Herrera dives in front of it and gets enough on it to take it looping over the bar.
90' + 2' PSG win a free-kick just inside City's half and Neymar whips a cross into the far post to try and pick out Marquinhos. Stones is just ahead of him though to flick it out of his path and away from danger.
90' City are still dominating possession, but they're not in as much of a hurry to move it into the box. PSG are on the backfoot, trying to stop them from finding a way through.
88' FODEN! It's a wonderful turn from Foden on the edge of the box between the three PSG defenders crowding him, but he still somehow manages to create space for a shot. He drills it down the middle, but it's straight at Navas who holds it.
K. De Bruyne
Yellow Card
Manchester City
86' De Bruyne steps on the top of Danilo's foot as he tries to win the ball back and is shown a yellow card. 
84' CHANCE! Mahrez cuts inside from the right and none of the PSG defenders go to close him down, so he decides to have a shot from range. He's looking for the near bottom corner but ends up dragging it wide of the post.
Ander Herrera
L. Paredes
83' Another change for PSG now as Paredes is taken off and Herrera is on to replace him.
82' It's a great run from Rodri as he pulls away from Danilo on the edge of the box and holds off Kimpembe long enough to pull the ball back into the middle. There's no one there though and Marquinhos chests it to Navas.
Danilo Pereira
Á. Di María
80' PSG are making a change after the sending off and it's Di Maria that's making way for Danilo.
79' Gundogan stayed down and looks to be in a lot of pain as the medical team make their way across to give him some treatment. He's back on his feet after a couple of minutes though and it looks like he's going to be able to carry on.
I. Gueye
Red Card
77' PSG DOWN TO 10! It's an awful challenge from Gueye as he went in on the back of Gundogan and caught him with his studs getting nowhere near the ball and the referee shows him a straight red card.
75' CHANCE! City are looking for another here and Mahrez curls a great cross into the near post from the right. Foden had a free header and glances it on target, but it's a comfortable save for Navas.
Yellow Card
74' Neymar catches Dias with a late challenge when he tries to block his pass and has his name taken by the referee.
73' PSG are moving the ball upfield which much more intent now and Di Maria curls a brilliant cross into Neymar on the far post. He chests it down and tries to lay it off to Verratti, but can't get it through the crowd of City defenders.
R. Mahrez
Manchester City
71' CITY LEAD! It looks like De Bruyne is stepping up to take the free-kick Foden won just outside the box, but it's Mahrez that hits it. A big gap opens up in the wall between Paredes and Kimpembe which Mahrez curls his shot through and he picks out the bottom corner. 2-1 City!
L. Paredes
Yellow Card
70' Paredes brings down Foden when he wins the ball back and ends up kicking the ball away in frustration which earns him a booking.
68' Verratti does well to get across and intercept Gundogan's pass, but he's the furthest forward for PSG, so he's forced to go back. City's high press is causing them trouble though and they still can't get out of their own half.
66' City are on the attack again and they're not letting up any of the pressure on the hosts. Stones spots Foden pulling away from Florenzi down the left, but he sets off too early and the flag goes up against him.
O. Zinchenko
Manchester City
64' Zinchenko initially thought about putting a cross into the box himself before laying it off to De Bruyne to his left instead.
K. De Bruyne
Manchester City
64' DE BRUYNE EQUALISES! It looks like De Bruyne is putting a cross into the box after it's switched out to him from a corner. Navas waits for a City player in the box to touch it but it never comes and the ball nestles into the bottom corner before the keeper can react. 1-1! 
63' PSG just can't string enough passes together when they get out of their own half to cause City any problems. Gueye spots Di Maria driving down the right, but gifts the ball straight to Rodri.
O. Zinchenko
João Cancelo
Manchester City
61' City make the first change of the game and it's Cancelo, who was booked in the first half, that's going off for Zinchenko.
61' DE BRUYNE! Mahrez curls another cross into the box and Kimpembe gets his head to it, only for it to loop up into the box. De Bruyne goes for the spectacular with an overhead kick, but can't keep it down as it bounces onto the roof of the net. 
60' Bakker's clearance is cut out Mahrez and City are in possession again. It's slow build-up from the visitors though as they still can't find a way through PSG who have everyone dropping deep in their half.
58' City aren't letting up the pressure here but PSG are equal to it at the moment. De Bruyne's run is cut out, but Foden picks it up and tries to whip in a cross only for that to be blocked by Kimpembe, who then hooks it clear.
56' GREAT CHANCE! Stones just can't stay with Mbappe as the forward accelerates away from him and drills a dangerous cross into the six-yard box. Verratti flies in, but it's just out of his reach and Dias puts it out for a corner.
54' It's much better from City than in the first half, and PSG are struggling to get out of their own half still. Cancelo drives forward down the left again and tries to float a cross into the middle, but it's straight into Navas' gloves.
52' Cancelo does well to dribble past Florenzi, but he then can't find a way past Di Maria, who makes an important interception. City keep coming through Foden, but yet again, the visitors have no one in the box to pick out with a cross.
50' PSG are trying to play out from the back, but they're creating their own problems as a short pass from Kimpembe to Verratti is cut out by Walker. His throughball into Mahrez is poor though and rolls straight out of play.
48' City have made a bright start to the second half and are keeping PSG penned back in their own half. Mahrez touches it onto De Bruyne down the right and he curls in a cross despite none of his team-mates being in the box, but it's blocked by Bakker.
46' City get us back underway for the second half! 
Guardiola won't be happy with City's first team performance and will be looking to tweak something to try and get his forward players involved in the game more. It's been a great game for PSG so far though as they've looked dangerous every time they've gone forward, but he will want to see them cut out some of the sloppiness at the back that's let City in.
Marquinhos' goal gives PSG a 1-0 lead over City at half-time. The hosts have created some great chances in the first half, with Neymar forcing a couple of good early saves out of Ederson before Marquinhos glanced a header past the keeper from a corner. City have struggled to get in behind PSG, but Silva and Foden have both tested Navas and forced him into important saves.
44' City are just starting to press PSG higher up the field after the hosts have made a couple of mistakes at the back. Silva almost nicks it off Kimpembe, but the defender manages to squeeze it through to Gueye.
42' GOOD SAVE! PSG give the ball away just outside their own box again and Silva latches onto it before squaring it to Foden. He takes a touch before firing a shot down the middle and Navas parries it away.
40' Neymar has stayed down holding his elbow after landing awkwardly under a challenge from Cancelo. He's slowly back to his feet without needing any treatment, but he still looks to be in a lot of pain.
38' Cancelo's throughball finally opens up a bit of space in behind PSG's compact defence for De Bruyne and he fizzes a dangerous cross into the box. There's no one there though and Bakker clears his lines.
36' PSG are finding a lot of space down the right and it's Florenzi that looks out Paredes' run in behind Cancelo. Ederson rushes out of his box and slices at the clearance but just does enough to get it out of play.
34' Verratti floats a wonderful ball over Dias to pick out Mbappe, but his first touch forces him wide. It looks like the chance is gone, but the forward manages to pull it back for Bakker, who drills a shot first time but it's blocked by Dias.
32' It's a poor pass out from the back by Navas and Foden pounces on it before whipping a cross into Mahrez. He heads it on for Silva in the middle and Paredes clears it just ahead of the midfielder.
João Cancelo
Yellow Card
Manchester City
31' Cancelo flies in to try and nick the ball off Mbappe, but is late on the forward and earns the first yellow card of the game.
29' City are starting to look frustrated as they continue to struggle to find a way in behind PSG, who are still dropping deep to close down the space. De Bruyne is looking for Foden down the left, but it's cut out by Florenzi.
27' Di Maria whips another dangerous corner into the box, but this one is just over Marquinhos' head. Verratti went to ground and PSG are asking for a penalty, but a quick VAR check says there was nothing in it.
25' Stones makes an important interception to stop Mbappe from running at goal but then Dias swipes at his clearance, gifting it to Verratti on the edge of the box. He can't get his feet sorted out quickly enough to pick out Neymar though and Cancelo hooks it clear.
23' Marquinhos has scored in both the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the Champions League for PSG for a second consecutive season.
21' SAVE! It's a wonderful cross over the top from Cancelo to pick out Silva's run at the far post and the midfielder pulls away from Marquinhos. He manages to turn it towards goal on the stretch and Navas manages to push it out for a corner.
19' Still, City are dominating possession but they just can't find a way through PSG. They go back to Stones, who switches things out to the right so Mahrez can have a run at Bakker, but the left-back is equal to it.
17' City are keeping the ball well at the moment as they try to get themselves level again. They're struggling to get in behind PSG though as the hosts have dropped deep to close the space and City can't get into the final third.
Á. Di María
15' It's a brilliant corner from Di Maria as he whips it into the near post, keeping it flat, and causes City a real problem.
15' PSG LEAD! PSG win another corner which is put in by Di Maria. Marquinhos starts on the penalty spot and Gundogan loses him as he runs to the near post. He rises highest and glances his header across goal and into the far bottom corner. 1-0 PSG!
13' GREAT SAVE! PSG take the corner short to Neymar and he plays a one-two with Verratti on the left of the box before taking it around Stones before firing a shot on goal. It takes a nick off Dias and Ederson does well to tip it over the crossbar.
12' Neymar slips a brilliant pass through to Di Maria through the middle and he drives towards the box. Dias knocks it away but PSG get hold of it again. Mbappe drifts out to the left and he sees his cross blocked by Walker.
10' City have won each of their last 17 away games across all competitions, keeping more clean sheets (nine) than goals conceded (eight) during this run.
8' It's patient play out from the back by PSG until Florenzi spots Mbappe driving through the middle, between the two City central defenders. He loops an early cross into him and Dias gets an important touch on it to flick it back for Ederson.
6' Mahrez is just pulling off the back of Bakker down the right and Gundogan spots his run. He tries to slot it through to him but overhits the pass into him and it rolls harmlessly out of play for a goal-kick.
4' It's City's turn to attack now, with Mahrez cutting inside from the right before playing a brilliant throughball for De Bruyne to chase. Marquinhos is alert though and makes an important interception to take it off his feet and clear the danger.
2' CHANCE! Di Maria is quickly in on Rodri and he sets PSG on the counter by playing in Mbappe. He threads it through the gap between City's defenders to pick out Neymar, but Walker gets back to block the Brazilian's shot, making it a comfortable save for Ederson.
1' Mbappe gets the game underway for PSG!
