Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, has equalled a Champions League record set by Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, following his goal against Paris Saint-Germain.

The Algeria star became the second player to score in both legs of the tournament’s semi-final tie for an English team.

Mane was the first Premier League player to achieve this after scoring against AS Roma in both legs of their last four fixture.

Consequently, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds qualified for the final where they bowed 3-1 to eventual champions Real Madrid inside Kyiv’s NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium that year.

The Citizens headed into Tuesday’s clash on the back of 2-1 triumph at the Parc des Princes, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men needing a convincing win to scale through.
