Kevin De Bruyne celebrates his goal for City

Kevin de Bruyne sent Manchester City into the Champions League semifinals for the first time Tuesday, securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain to build on a 2-2 draw from the first leg.

PSG's fourth successive exit in the quarterfinals leaves the Qatari-owned club still chasing a much sought-after European Cup. Instead, City is celebrating another landmark in the club's transformation in the eight years since itself coming under Middle Eastern ownership - from Abu Dhabi.

This was a night when rival strikers both misfired. PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic endured frustration in front of goal and Sergio Aguero missed a penalty for City in the first half.


Instead, De Bruyne eased City's passage by curling a shot through the crowded penalty area into the net in the 76th minute.
