Fernando and Fernandinho have eventful night as Man City draw in Paris [Tweets]

fernando vs psg, april 2016

Holding midfielders by trade, Manchester City pair Fernando and Fernandinho might want to reconsider their job titles after tonight’s performance at Paris Saint-Germain.

City leave the French capital firmly in their Champions League quarter-final after an action-packed 2-2 draw with the Brazilian duo at the heart of most major incidents.

Fernando was responsible for the biggest howler of the night. Or at least partially responsible. He was the recipient of a pass from Joe Hart but a poor touch and worse composure saw Zlatan Ibrhaimovic close him down and cancel out Kevin De Bruyne’s opener with a ricochet. Hospital pass from Hart? Not according to viewers.

With his partner-in-crime and near-namesake in the doghouse, Fernandinho joined him there temporarily after being at fault for PSG’s second goal, scored from a corner by Adrien Rabiot.

However, he made up for it with an equaliser twenty minutes before the death.
