The England international, who has played a key part in the club's impressive season, troubled Mauricio Pochettino's side throughout the opening 45 minutes with his trickery and movement.
And in the 40th minute, Foden recieved the ball from Bernardo Silva in the middle of the park before skipping past Leandro Paredes with a sublime flick.
He then drove towards the penalty area and found Oleksandr Zinchenko on the left wing with a cutting pass.

Foden, who completed three take-ons in the first half against the Ligue 1 champions - more than anyone on the pitch - impressed plenty of fans in the Champions League semi-final clash.
Here's just a handful of comments from social media.
Maybe Pep was right when he said Foden's the best youngster he's ever seen cos this kid is clear of Lionel Messi himself at this point :sweat_smile: pic.twitter.com/EgBaJzNaZK

I don't like to exaggerate or put too much pressure on young shoulders, but Phil Foden is the second coming of Jesus Christ

Every time I watch Phil Foden, I'm stunned by how good he is.
A supremely gifted footballer in every way.

Manchester City opened the scoring in the 11th minute when Riyad Mahrez cooly converted past Keylor Navas in the PSG goal.
Pep Guardiola's continued to dominate throughout the first half and into the second as that man Foden caused plenty of problems in attacking areas.
Let us know your thoughts on Foden's performance in the comments.
