They responded brilliantly with Kevin De Bruyne equalising after 64 minutes and Riyad Mahrez firing home a free-kick soon after.
PSG lost their discipline as City threatened to score more in a strong finish and Idrissa Gana Gueye was shown a straight red card for a poor challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.
The way City controlled proceedings in the latter stages was remarkable given how vulnerable they looked to PSG’s slick counter-attacks in a breathless opening period.
PSG XI: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bakker; Gueye, Paredes; Di Maria, Verratti, Neymar; Mbappe
Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Silva
