Losing on the part of city would have been tough for the club who controlled large spells of the match against PSG last night, But with the greatest thanks to Sterling and Gabriel Jesus’s goals it was not a worrisome night for the sky blues of Man City.
Sterling’s equalizer took him to 23 goals in the champions league, which only bettered by two English players Wayne Rooney 30 goals placing first and Paul Scholes 24 goals placing second and Sterling 23 goals placing him 3rd. There is every possibility that sterling will go on to surpass the pair with the years left in his bag.
With this victory, city ensured top spot in group A and will be seeded for the round 16. They are the second favourites in our tournament projections to win the 2021 22 ucl at 17.8 percent behind only Bayern Munich 18.4 percent.
But for PSG, they also qualified for the knockout stages last night, but have RB Leipzig to thank for that, following their emphatic win in Brugge. They will have to make do with second place in the group, however meaning they will be unseeded and must play away from home in the second league of their last 16 tie not ideal when you have only won four of your last 12 knockout matches away D1 L7 although at least the away goal rule no more.
