Pochettino flatly denies Man Utd job link

Gabriel Jesus completed Manchester City’s comeback to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 and secure a place in the round of 16 of the Champions League as group winners on Wednesday. PSG is also sure of going through as runner-up in Group A thanks to Leipzig beating Club Brugge 5-0. The clash of the competition’s wealthiest teams, who are yet to win European football’s top prize, fully came to life in the 50th minute when Kylian Mbappe put PSG ahead after an interchange between Lionel Messi and Neymar. But the attacking dominance by City that defined the first half saw Raheem Sterling’s outstretched left foot nudge in a cross from Kyle Walker to equalize in the 63rd. After Neymar missed a chance to restore PSG’s lead, Bernado Silva teeed up Gabriel Jesus who connected with scuffed shot that still beat Keylor Navas in the 76th. Follow all the latest updates below.


Man City 0 - 1 PSG

61 mins: Save! City play the free kick short and give the ball to Mahrez. He takes it into the box from the right and hits one at goal only for Navas to palm it away from close range!

Man City 0 - 1 PSG

59 mins: It’s getting a little heated out there as Herrera goes down and Man City elect to play on. They send the ball into the six-yard box and Marquinhos pokes it out for a corner. Herrera is down again and has to go off, Danilo replaces him for PSG.

Man City 0 - 1 PSG

56 mins: Gabriel Jesus’ introduction to the game sees him weave into the box before losing possession to Kimpembe. He prods the ball up to Paredes who is clipped by Rodri. The Man City midfielder gives away a free kick and picks up a yellow card for that tackle.

Man City 0 - 1 PSG

53 mins: How do Man City respond to that. They dominated the game in Paris as well but also went behind and eventually lost that match 2-0. Is something similar going to happen tonight.

Pep Guardiola makes a change and brings on Gabriel Jesus in place of Oleksandr Zinchenko.

GOAL! Man City 0 - 1 PSG (Mbappe, 50’)⚽️

50 mins: That was always the danger! Mendes starts the move deep in his own half with a pass up to Messi before bombing it down the left wing. Messi slots the ball back out to him and he sprints into City’s half. Messi gets the ball back and plays a one-two with Herrera to take it into the box. He slots a cross towards the six-yard area for Neymar but a deflection takes the ball to the back post where Mbappe brings it under control and slots it through the legs of Ederson to give PSG the lead!

Man City 0 - 0 PSG

48 mins: Chance! Rodri lifts a pass into the box as he spots Gundogan’s run in behind. Navas charges the German down but Gundogan chips it over the goalkeeper. The ball loops so high that Hakimi and Marquinhos both get back in time to head it away from goal and then the offside flag goes up against the Man City midfielder.

Second half: Man City 0 - 0 PSG

Kick off: Man City get the ball rolling once again. Neither manager has made any substitutions at half-time. Can Man City capitalise on their impressive display from the first half and break the deadlock?

Elsewhere in the Champions League

In the other Group A game of the evening Club Brugges are trailing RB Leipzig by four goals to nil. That means that both Man City and PSG would qualify for the next round whatever the result of their clash.

In effect the match at the Etihad Stadium is now a decider to see who will finish at the top of the group.

In Group B, Liverpool are currently drawing 0-0 with Porto. The Reds are already in the next round but will want to continue their unbeaten run in the group stages so far.
