Due to the goals by Kevin de Bruyne and Fernandinho in Paris, Man City have the slight advantage ahead of the decisive leg on Tuesday.
PSG were the favorite to progress to the UCL semifinals before the series began, but Manuel Pellegrini’s men looked capable and hungry at the Parc des Princes.
The scoreline on aggregate sits at 2-2, so a low-scoring tie or a win on home soil will see Man City’s magical UCL run continue
