That was one of the best performances, in an away leg, by an English side in the history of European football. Absolutely outstanding from @ManCity :raised_hands:- Gary Lineker :blue_heart: (@GaryLineker) April 28, 2021
The Premier League leaders will now go into next week's second-leg at the Etihad with a one-goal advantage after an impressive second-half performance in Paris.
That being said, the Ligue 1 champions will no doubt cause City problems in the second-leg; especially considering how well they performed in the opening 30 minutes at the Parc des Princes.
In particular, it was the brilliant Neymar who shone most in the first-half alongside the likes of Angel di Maria and Leandro Paredes.

Despite an impressive performance, however, Liam Gallagher was far from impressed with his diving antics throughout.
In fact, the former lead singer of rock band Oasis decided to brand the Brazilian an "embarrassing c***" on his official Twitter account, and called for Neymar to be sent off after one particular dive.
Gallagher's series of tweets certainly captured the attention of many on social media, including a Spanish TV station who decided to, perhaps unknowingly, use one of his x-rated tweets during their coverage.

As mentioned earlier, it was the French champions who dominated in the early stages of the tie and, after a blistering opening 15 minutes, it didn't take Mauricio Pochettino's side long to make a breakthrough.
Angel Di Maria, who was impressive throughout, managed to find centre-back Marquinhos with a lovely whipped-in ball from a corner to give them a deserved 1-0 lead.

Kevin de Bruyne equalised in the 64th minute with a bizarre effort from range. The Belgian clearly meant to float in a cross but instead found the net, with Keylor Navas making a rare error between the sticks.
And just seven minutes later, in-form winger Riyad Mahrez arrowed in a cracking free-kick to make it 2-1 to complete the comeback
Yes, Riyad Mahrez! :dart:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) April 28, 2021
He asked to take it. He was allowed to take it. He scored it.

Can Pep Guardiola's side go on and reach the Champions League final for the first time in their history?
