first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP):Kevin de Bruyne sent Manchester City into the Champions League semi-finals for the first time yesterday, securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain to build on a 2-2 draw from the first leg.PSG’s fourth successive exit in the quarter-finals leaves the Qatari-owned club still chasing a much sought-after European Cup. Instead, City are celebrating another landmark in the club’s transformation in the eight years since themselves coming under Middle Eastern ownership from Abu Dhabi.This was a night when rival strikers both misfired. PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic endured frustration in front of goal and Sergio Aguero missed a penalty for City in the first half.Instead, De Bruyne eased City’s passage by curling a shot through the crowded penalty area into the net in the 76th minute.Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to lead Real Madrid back to the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg yesterday.Ronaldo netted goals in the 16th and 17th minutes and then added a decisive third with a remarkable free kick in the 77th as Madrid overturned a 2-0 loss in last week’s first leg to win 3-2 on aggregate.last_img read more
