Amazing stat suggests Man City progressing past PSG is a banker


What a fabulous result for Man City.

It was a topsy-turvy evening at the Parc des Princes, which eventually ended in a highly entertaining 2-2 draw.

Both sides made big mistakes at the back to allow the other to score, but there’s no doubt that Manuel Pellergrini’s side will leave the game the happier of the teams.

After David Luiz set a new Champions League record for the fastest ever booking after 12 seconds, Joe Hart produced a masterful save to turn aside a Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty.

Kevin De Bruyne fired City in front in the 38th minute, only for a shocking mistake from Fernando gifted Zlatan Ibrahimovic the equaliser. Adrian Rabiot then put PSG in front with a back post finish in the 59th, but the Sky Blues managed to square the match at 2-2 through a deflected Fernandinho strike.

2-2 is a fine result for City.

In an amazing stat, teams who draw the first leg 2-2 away from home in UEFA club competition, qualify 79.4% of the time.

That’s been proven by 220 teams in 277 ties.
