Man City – PSG: Parisians eliminated by citizens at the gates …


Paris Saint-Germain are frustrated and will not play another Champions League final. Already beaten (1-2) on the first stage at the Parc des Princes, the capital club was dominated by Manchester City (0-2) on Tuesday in the semi-finals.

To make matters worse, Di Maria lost his temper a few minutes later with an expulsion for a bad gesture on Fernandinho. On a new percussion from the Foot, PSG grazed the corrective with a shot from the Englishman on the post!
