Watch: Fernandinho equalizes against PSG

Well it’s safe to say no one saw this coming. Right from the start PSG were dominating their Champions League quarterfinal tie with Manchester City right up until some shaky defending allowed Kevin de Bruyne to give City the lead against the run of play.

Not to be outdone, some even more shaky defending play out of the back by Manchester City allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to equalize for PSG merely seconds later. When PSG finally took the lead in the second half, it looked like City would have to hold on tight to try to keep it a one goal deficit when they went back to Manchester.

But shaky defending is apparently a theme in this game, and when PSG continued to be shaky at the back, Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho was there to equalize for the lone English club left in the tournament and also giving them a second away goal which could play pivotal role in the second leg.
