Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to provide an assist and score the winner in one of the comeback football scores of the UEFA Champions League. City completely dominated the first half while creating a number of chances but failed to find the back of the net. They were made to rue their missed opportunities when Kylian Mbappe put the visitors ahead. Raheem Sterling scored the equalizer just after the hour mark before Gabriel Jesus scored the winner with a superb finish.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “It was a good game. The sense of danger when they have the ball in the final third is terrible, but, again, we did a good performance. It was unfortunate in the first half the chances we had we couldn’t convert and, from nothing, they have the quality to do it. After the goal we suffer for five-10 minutes but, after that, with our people – thank you to how they supported us – it was a lovely night for us.”
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino: “Yes, disappointed but at the same time, City, in the first half, they played well, and they forced us to play deeper. They were very aggressive. To be honest, I think we need to give the credit to Man City.”
