For the first time in its history PSG Qatari Version approached a quarter-final of the Champions League as a favorite. However, Laurent Blanc’s men have failed to assume this status, delivering a mediocre game and conceding a logical draw (2-2) against their opponent, Manchester City, though widely in scope.
City has the edge after an entertaining, topsy-turvy game featuring parts of top play and a lot of slapdash defending. It wasn’t boring, and it’s far from over. Fernandinho and Fernando, very complementary, were very good in midfield, and De Bruyne is a lovely player. He will be even fitter for the second leg, and Touré, Sterling and Verratti might be back too so there’s still lots to look forward to in this tie. Matuidi and David Luiz will be following it on an MBM. You can too.
