Paris Saint-Germain eliminated again at the quarter-final stage

Paris Saint-Germain has again been beaten at the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.

This is the fourth consecutive season that the French club failed to make it to the semi-final. After having drawn the first leg 2-2, Paris Saint-Germain could not make up their deficit and instead conceded another goal that put them out of the competition.

Despite having the lion share of the possession, Paris Saint-Germain failed to create enough goal scoring opportunities. When they did breach the Manchester City defence, they found Hart on their way. The City keeper made three decisive saves that prevented PSG from scoring.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was incredibly silent during this game, and the only dangerous occasion he had was on a free-kick. His shot was on target but unfortunately was well saved by the Manchester City keeper.

At the other end, Manchester City was happy to sit back and to hit PSG on the counter. They had a couple of chances, but Aguero missed the target. They were even awarded a penalty because of a foul of Kevin Trapp. Sergio Aguero missed the penalty which could have put Manchester City ahead earlier in the game.

Instead, it was Kevin de Bruyne who would score the only goal of the game in the 76th minute. The Belgium international benefited from a good service of Fernando. His precise shot did not give any chance to the PSG keeper.

Afterwards, it was all Paris Saint-Germain who tried to equalize. But Manchester City held their ground, and Pellegrini sent in Yaya Toure in an attempt to strengthen his midfield. Despite having possession, PSG will not create any useful occasion and found themselves eliminated at the same stage as last year.

Paris Saint-Germain will definitely regret the missed opportunities that they had in the first leg especially the missed penalty.
