Manchester City on Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes handed themselves a slight advantage in their first leg quarter-final clash with PSG as they scored two vital away goals to secure a crucial 2-2 draw.
Coach Manuel Pellegrini’s side are making it this far for the first time in Europe’s biggest club competition and they showed intent that they want to go further if not win the ultimate prize as they struck first in Paris before the hosts fought back, but Ferndinho’s strike 18 minutes from time rescued a 2-2 draw from a pulsating encounter
It was Belgium international Kevin de Bruyne that set the tone for the day as he opened the scoring after 38 minnutes after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had missed a penalty.
Joe Hart guessed right and got low down to his right and pushed away the spot kick.
But the Swede was quick to make amends when he capitalised on a Fernando mistake to level the game before the break.
City were only in front for just three minutes after Fernando took a short goal kick from Joe Hart and lost the ball.
Adrien Rabiot then put the hosts in front and they were hoping they can at least get a win no matter how slim before Fernandinho’s 72nd minute equaliser gave the visitors a huge lifeline in the race to make the semis.
