Manchester City came from behind to win 2-1 win away to Paris Saint-Germain in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final clash and Kevin De Bruyne was one of many players who impressed.
The 29-year-old scored one goal and could have added to his tally late on had it not been for a deflection. No City player had more shots or whipped in more crosses than De Bruyne, so he was deserving of the Man of the Match award.
Where will Manchester City finish this season?
Kevin De Bruyne is the Man of the Match👏👏No Midfielder in the world is better than him. This guy is a baller.

Against PSG, De Bruyne played for 90 minutes, had 73 touches, completed 92% of his 50 passes, had three shots with 33% hitting the target, whipped in eight crosses and won one freekick.
The Belgian international has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring nine goals with 17 assists. He’s had a hand in seven goals from six Champions League outings and flourished in one of the biggest games of his career.
De Bruyne stood up as captain when City were behind at the break, turning the game around in the second half and coming away with the Man of the Match award for his troubles. Pep Guardiola will be delighted with his captain.
