Manchester City cruise to the UEFA champions league final

Manchester City are in the champions league final after a 2-0 win against PSG on the night and 4-1 on aggregate. 

Riyad Mahrez scored in each half to hand Pep Guardiola his first final in charge of City.

His side will now await the winner of the second semi winner between Chelsea and Real Madrid who meet at Stamford bridge.

PSG suffered a serious blow before kick-off when world-class forward Kylian Mbappe was restricted to the bench because of injury.

But PSG did not lack intent and had early hope when a penalty was awarded for a handball by Oleksandr Zinchenko before it was correctly overturned by VAR .

Angel di Maria was shown a red card for a senseless stamp on Fernandinho following a touchline tangle.

According to pundits ,City have shown great maturity and development this season, keeping their nerve when under pressure against Borussia Dortmund in the last eight and also surviving a PSG surge in Paris .

City are also the first English club to win seven consecutive games in Champions League or European Cup competition .
