Manchester City made history on Tuesday by reaching the UEFA Champions League final for the first time.

According to Anadolu Agency, the Riyad Mahrez-led English club eliminated France's Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) by defeating them 2-0 in the semifinal second leg in Manchester (AA).

In Tuesday's match against PSG, Man City's Algerian midfielder Riyad Mahrez scored two goals and made a significant contribution.

Following a rebound by PSG's defense, Mahrez scored the game's first goal in the 11th minute from a close angle in the area.

In the 63rd minute, he doubled the lead on a fast counterattack. The 30-year-old scored in the far post with a close-range finish. Phil Foden, an English midfielder, supported him.

In the 69th minute, Paris Saint-Germain was reduced to ten men after Argentine star Angel Di Maria lost his cool and was sent off for clashing with Man City midfielder Fernandinho after the ball had gone out of play.

In 2021 final, the winners will face either Chelsea or Real Madrid.

Chelsea will face Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge in London on Wednesday evening.

The tie was 1-1 after the first leg.

On May 29, the Champions League final will take place at Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium.
