Manchester City comprehensively won the second leg of the semi-finals 2-0 against PSG, thus winning the entire tie by 4-1 on aggregate. Riyad Mahrez shone once again with a match-winning double, and here we take a look at how all the players did fare.
Ederson – 7.5
Once again, he proved that he is one of the best keepers in the world, not only for his shot-stopping abilities but also for his passing skills. The Brazilian played a big hand in the first goal by finding Zinchenko with a long and precise ball before the left-back found Kevin de Bruyne, the provider of first-goal.
John Stones – 8
Stones’ resurgence continues this season, and he is also experiencing a productive campaign of his career yet.
Ruben Dias – 8.5
Dias effortlessly bossed the defence, and this time he contained PSG’s attack to greater effort.
Kyle Walker – 7
Getting the nod regularly in the big games, yet the Englishman’s understanding of Guardiola’s style of play makes him one of the underrated players.
Zinchenko – 7.5
Instrumental in Mahrez’s first goal and silenced his doubters with a great performance.
Fernandinho – 7.5
Surprisingly, the veteran midfielder was chosen instead of Rodri but fared decently. Induced a red card from Angel Di Maria, the 35-year-old did enough to impress the Spanish boss.
Ilkay Gundogan – 8
Gundogan put on an underrated performance, constantly using his tight-passing and vision to unbalance PSG.
Kevin De Bruyne – 8.5
The man of the match during the first leg, De Bruyne, almost plays a similar game, but only the goals were missing from him.
Phil Foden – 8
The 20-year-old created the goal for Mahrez’s second, and his flashes of brilliance make him a player to watch out for.
Riyad Mahrez – 9
Two clinical finishes in the second leg, and with a winning strike in the away leg, Mahrez has proven himself as one of Europe’s best forwards.
Keylor Navas – 5.5
A tie to forget for the Costa Rican goalkeeper who had been brilliant before the semi-finals.
Marquinhos – 5.5
He came close to scoring a goal, but his defensive contribution wasn’t worthy.
Presnal Kimpembe – 4
The lacklustre Frenchman looked faulty at both of City’s goals.
Alessandro Florenzi – 4.5
He was caught out of position on many occasions and failed to deliver in the attacking third.
Abdou Diallo – 4
The full-back pairing of Florenzi and Diallo were futile on both ends.
Ander Herrera – 4
Highly inconsistent like all of the fellow midfielders. The ex-Man Utd star’s only contribution is picking up a yellow card.
Leandro Paredes – 4
One of the best players of PSG on paper, Paredes, was completely contained by Citizens. Perhaps, they must have known that the Argentine would succumb to pressure.
Marco Verratti – 7
PSG’s most influential player on the paper looked clueless after a certain point in the match. Perhaps PSG conceded the match before it ended.
Angel Di Maria – 3.5
The Argentine dropped a stinker on the field, and his red card for a horrible foul on Fernandinho would have made his day.
Neymar – 6
Neymar’s words before the game were flattering to deceive as everyone witnessed only his magical skills, not goals.
Mauro Icardi – 4
He played instead of injured Mbappe, but the Argentine was nowhere to be found until being substituted.
