The Algerian winger was a constant threat down the right wing, destroying Abdou Diallo and Presnel Kimpembe on numerous occasions.

He also showed off his defensive side, marking Neymar and helping out at the back during the visitor's early onslaught.

Mahrez will be remembered for his goals, but he delivered a superb all-round performance with fans comparing his European run to Mohamed Salah's back in the 2017/18 campaign.

He told BT Sport: "It was a very good game. We didn't start good again.

"I don't think we had a very good first half but we scored a goal and then we were more comfortable.

"After the goal in the second half we played very good, we could have scored more, then they lost their nerves and started kicking us, they had a red card and it was more comfortable for us.

"I don't think it was our game plan to counter, they had to come at us - sometimes they lose the ball and they are good on the counter as well. We were happy with the second goal."

On City's first goal, Mahrez added: "[Ederson] We know he's capable to put the ball to the other goal, it's something we work on all the time - today it worked good.

"When you play semi-final of the Champions League you have to be solid - everyone has to contribute for the defence and that's what we did, we were very solid today, we didn't concede much that's why were in the final."

City will face the winner of Chelsea vs. Real Madrid in Istanbul on May 29.
