In an impressive come from behind victory again Paris St. Germain in France, England’s Manchester City are now just 90 minutes away from their first ever Champions League Final.
And should they make it past PSG early next week, an all-English final against fellow Premiership side Chelsea beckons.
Winning 2-1 on the night, City’s goal scorers Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez have given the Blues the edge in what will be the biggest game in their history on May 4th.
A win or draw will see them through.
The team from Manchester will still need to get past a star-studded PSG side with Brazilian star Neymar and French international Kylian Mbappe leading the charge – neither of whom played particularly well in the 1st leg.
Possible opponents if they do will be Chelsea – London’s highest flying team so far in the Premiership.
Returning to England after a hard fought 1-1 draw away at Real Madrid, the west London team know they still have it all to do back home at Stamford Bridge on May 5th, even if they did manage an all important away goal in the Spanish capital.
Unlike Manchester City, Chelsea have appeared in the final on two previous occasions, winning once – in 2012 – and having also appeared in the first ever all-English final in 2008, against Manchester City’s bitter rivals Manchester United.
