Riyad Mahrez strikes twice Man City in First UCL Final

Riyad Mahrez two goals, Man City defeats PSG 2-0 go in First champions League Final 2021.






Manchester City reached their first Champions League final as they overcame Paris St-Germain at Etihad Stadium to secure a surprising victory over two legs.


 Pep Guardiola's side are now becoming the most powering English team in history.


 The brilliant Riyad Mahrez capped a sweeping move started by goalkeeper Ederson's 60-yard pass to extend their 2-1 advantage from the first leg in Paris.

 PSG suffered a serious blow before kick-off when forward Kylian Mbappe was restricted to the bench because of injury.


 Mahrez punished them again just after the hour when he turned in Phil Foden's cross at the far post to effectively end the contest.



 PSG, Idrissa Gueye was sent off late in the first leg, & Now Angel di Maria was shown a red card for a senseless stamp on Fernandinho following a touchline tangle.
