Two billion euros later, the Manchester City has finally reached the penultimate stop to The Golden that everything justifies it. The best team of Europe of the season to be where it belongs, in the final of May 29 in Istanbul, where Real Madrid o Chelsea They will have to face the major challenge of denying glory to the huge team that, after five years of cooking, has built Pep Guardiola. The PSG, without the injured Mbapp, could only play the role of helper -another one- in the brilliant work that the citizens in this Champions.
The second leg of the semi-final for the petrodlars was broken in just 10 minutes, when the first goal of Mahrez -also scored the second- calmed the momentum of PSG and devoured their morale. Two goals would then have been enough for those of Pochettino to send the tie to overtime, but they never had the faith to pursue them. Also, devoid of the bruised Mbapp, they lacked football, in front of a City with a thousand resources, capable of annihilating with eternal possessions and also counterattack if necessary, as happened last night.
Only the Mancunians truly suffered during the dawn of the duel. The Parisian start was furious, dizzying, designed by Pochettino to overwhelm Manchester City despite the fact that the state of the grass, covered by a thin layer of snow -removed at half-time-, did not invite the risks proposed by PSG. The mixture of Herrera, Verrati and Paredes allow visitors to wrest possession of the team that boasts the world’s greatest ball dominance. His baggage, however, was meager. Just a penalty that was not, well Zinchenko He hit the ball with his shoulder, more with his back than with his arm, as evidenced by the VAR.

The City escape route

But even in that context of submission, the City finds you escape to be lethal. It was enough a ball of Ederson towards Zinchenko, a shot of De Bruyne What a hit in a defense and the appearance of Mahrez to pick up the rejection. Only ten minutes had passed, PSG were playing as they should and yet the tie was getting even more uphill.
The goal was a very heavy rock in the backpack of the French team, unable to believe from that moment that he had the capacity to complete the heroic. With the exception of Verratti, who was dominant in midfield, all of Pochettino’s players were desperately looking for Neymar as if the Brazilian could dribble half a dozen rivals on each play. It is good, a lot, but not so much as to unblock the entire defensive fabric of City on its own.
The knockout sentence came after game time, in another fierce counterattack again culminated by Mahrez, which ended up emotionally destroying PSG. By Mara He confirmed it six minutes later, expelling himself after hitting Fernandinho -that was headline by surprise instead of Rodrigo and completed a superb encounter – a voluntary stomp off the field of play. The night was exhausted between dangerous kicks and at the wrong time due to the sheer impotence of the PSG players, who neither won nor knew how to lose. City had cold blood to ignore the provocations and lead the remainder of the game towards the outcome it was leading 13 sounding.
