(Watch Highlights) Manchester City beat PSG after astonishing comeback in Paris

Man City started the second half on the front foot and pinned last year’s finalists, PSG, inside their own half.

And City found themselves level with a slice of luck.

A Man City corner was worked across the edge of PSG’s penalty area and to De Bruyne.

The Belgian shifted the ball onto his right foot and delivered what looked like a cross toward the far post, catching out Navas to draw City level.

PSG looked a different team to the team that played so well in the first half.

And Parades conceded a sloppy free-kick in the 71st minute.

De Bruyne shaped up to shoot, but left it to Mahrez who bent the free-kick through the wall and into the bottom-left corner.

PSG lost all composure, and minutes later, Gueye was sent off for a reckless challenge on Gundogan.

Still all to play for in the second leg next Tuesday, but Man City have a massive, massive, two away goal advantage.

Chelsea plot swoop for enterprising Ligue 1 youngster

Chelsea are reportedly plotting a £10.5m swoop for Metz’s teenager star Pape Sarr.

The Senegal midfielder, 18, has enjoyed a dramatic rise into the French side’s first-team this term.

As well as attracting admiring glances from a host of big clubs, he has also earned international recognition.

Sarr won his first cap for his country in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo last month.

That came only four months after his league debut for the French club in November.

Now L’Equipe claims Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have joined the growing list of teams queuing up to try and sign him.

But the Blues will face stiff competition for Sarr’s signature. Premier League rivals Everton and Newcastle are also keen on the starlet.

Real Madrid captain Marcelo reveals they had premonition “Madrid could fail to win”

Marcelo has revealed that there was general expectation that Real Madrid could fail to beat Chelsea in the first leg of the semi final in Spain on Tuesday.

Karim Benzema cancelled out Christian Pulisic’s, with the west London club going into the second leg with an away goal advantage.

“We knew it could happen [that Madrid could fail to win], but there’s another game [to be played],” Marcelo said post-game in comments carried by Marca.

“We’re fine and we know what we have to do. The second leg will be different. We don’t choose the rhythm of the game, we have to adapt to what it is. We’re well and we’re calm.”

Marcelo was appreciate of Benzema’s contribution, but underlined the importance of the collective. “The team is more than 25 players,” he said.

“We’re working hard every day. I’m happy that Karim scored, but above all we came out with our heads up. We’re working hard, doing things we think we can do well. Real Madrid will always fight to the end.”

Sevilla interested in Chelsea playmaker as part of Blues’ deal for in-demand defender Jules Kounde

Reports in Spain claim Sevilla are interested in taking Chelsea playmaker Hakim Ziyech as part of the Blues’ bid for Jules Kounde.

French defender Kounde is rumoured to be one of the hottest properties of the summer transfer market.

A strong second season with Sevilla has helped put the LaLiga club in position for an unlikely late title challenge.

And Manchester United are said to be monitoring the player, along with Chelsea.

Spanish outlet El Gol Digital have claimed that Ziyech could be key to unlocking the deal.

Selling the midfielder as part of Kounde’s move to West London could reportedly chop 50 per cent off the transfer fee.

Thiago Silva’s wife slams Timo Werner

Thiago Silva’s wife, Isabelle da Silva, aimed a dig at Timo Werner during Chelsea’s draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Thomas Tuchel’s side took the lead through Christian Pulisic but Karim Benzema scored Madrid’s equaliser to make it 1-1 in the Spanish capital ahead of next week’s semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge.

Werner, meanwhile, had another game to forget as he missed an excellent chance to put Chelsea in front as his clear-cut opportunity from close range was saved by Thibaut Courtois.

And Isabelle da Silva, who was watching the game at home with her children, was less than impressed with Werner’s latest miss.

In a video uploaded to her Instagram account during the first half, Isabelle da Silva said: “This is karma, guys.

“Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?”

In a second video posted on her account, Isabelle da Silva added: “We need a goal, we need to win this match but my attackers don’t want to score, I don’t know why they don’t score.”

Eden Hazard reveals Real Madrid’s plan for Chelsea in London next week, addresses Zidane’s 3-5-2 formation against Blues

Eden Hazard Real Madrid would go ‘looking for the win’ in the second leg against Chelsea following the 1-1 draw on Tuesday night.

Christian Pulisic’s fine strike put Chelsea ahead before Karim Benzema levelled for the home side in the Champions League semi-final first leg.

Hazard, who has just returned from his latest injury setback, came off the bench just after the hour-mark against his former club.

The result means Real must score in the return leg to stand any chance of reaching a final against either Manchester City or PSG.

Afterwards Hazard said: “It could be better and it could be worse! We will go there looking for the win.

“I am just going step by step, of course I want to play, I want to be on the pitch. I played a bit more today than before, we have games before the end of the season and I want to be ready. I am just happy to be playing again.

“It’s always good to play against friends. Now I am a Real Madrid player so I just want to win.”

Real struggled with a three-man defence in the first-half, and were fortunate not to have conceded more than one goal before Benzema levelled

Hazard added: “The manager decides what formation we play, we know how to play with three at the back but we can also play with four.”

Cesar Azpilicueta reveals occasion Chelsea should have nailed Real Madrid

Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta is disappointed that Chelsea did not make their early dominance count having started so impressively in the Spanish capital.

“I think we started really well for the first 20-25 minutes, we got the goal and I think we could have scored more,” he said.

“They got back from a set play. We then controlled some parts and suffered in others. It is just the first half, we knew against Real Madrid it would be tough.

“We started with courage, we had to perform at our best level. The semi-final of a Champions League asks you to play your best. We missed that little last pass where we could choose the best option.

“I think in the overall analysis we performed well. Benzema scored a great goal, he is a very good striker. He dropped, he got the ball and got that goal. We have to be aware for the next game.

“We are a whole group where we work hard. We have the chance to win two trophies, so everyone is committed. As a unit I think we are all improving and all growing.”
