Man City seal top spot after comeback win against PSG
Manchester City sealed their passage into the Champions League last 16 as group winners after coming from a goal down to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.
City dominated the opening 45 minutes but could not find a breakthrough as Mauricio Pochettino, who was heavily linked with the vacant Manchester United job in the build-up to the game, saw his PSG side hold firm under a barrage of pressure from the hosts.
Pep Guardiola's side were made to pay for their wastefulness early in the second half as Kylian Mbappe put the Ligue 1 leaders ahead against the run of play.
However, City stormed back, with goals from Raheem Sterling and substitute Gabriel Jesus completing the turnaround, to secure a place in the knockout phase with a game to spare.
The victory sees Guardiola's men, who are aiming to win their first Champions League title, also top Group A with one game left to play, while PSG are also through despite the loss in Manchester because of Club Brugge's 5-0 defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig.
Despite the absence of key attacking players in Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Jack Grealish, Manchester City started firmly on the front foot and created a number of clear-cut opportunities as they dominated most of the opening 45 minutes.
Rodri rose highest to head Riyad Mahrez's free-kick goalwards but his powerful header was cleared off the line by Presnel Kimpembe.
Mahrez was heavily involved in the action for City in the first half and the visitors needed Achraf Hakimi to divert the Algerian's curled effort over the crossbar.
