Foden has another pop from further out and Navas is there to thwart him once more. PSG counter. Neymar surges into the area. He leaves Dias behind but Zinchenko stays disciplined and makes a vital block to divert the Brazilian's shot behind.

54' 

SAVE! Foden is set free by KDB. He takes aim just inside the area but sees his low drive kept out by Navas. The flag then goes up for offside - it wouldn't have counted.

City deal with a succession of PSG corners. There's a very real threat from Marquinhos in the air but the hosts didn't let him get anywhere near the ball then.

The away side come again. Stones throws his body in the way of Neymar's shot before Dias follows suit by getting in the way of a devilish delivery from the right. This City defence is once again showing why it has had so many plaudits this season.

42' 

Foden mesmerises PSG with some bewitching footwork to drive through the heart of the midfield. City work it into the area but Mahrez is crowded out as he tried to let fly from 12 yards out.

Can Pochettino mastermind another famous triumph at the Etihad? Back in April 2019 he saw his Spurs side reach the semi finals of the CL courtesy of the away goals rule (4-4). Eurosport were in the press box to witness a classic 4-3 thriller. Let's hope we are set for a similar night of drama.
