Goal keeper Ederson produced a moment of magic to help Manchester City advance to their first ever Champions League final after knocking out PSG.

City put on two masterclasses to comfortably knock out PSG with a 2-0 victory at home to eliminate last season's finalists 4-1 on aggregate on Tuesday.

But the first goal came from a sensational moment from ball-playing keeper Ederson.

With PSG pressing City passed the ball back to the keeper at the top of the box.

Known for his ball-playing abilities, Ederson took a step back and launched an 80m pass into the path of left back Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Zinchenko squared the ball for Riyad Mahrez who tapped it home after a rapid counter attack.

Fans were in awe of Ederson's magical moment.

City advance to first Champions League final

Mahrez netted twice before PSG had Angel Di Maria sent off as City won 2-0 at home to eliminate last season's finalists 4-1 on aggregate on Tuesday.

"Then they lost their nerve and started to kick us and it was good," Mahrez said. 

"They had the red card and after it was more comfortable for us."

It's been anything but comfortable for City getting a shot at lifting European football's top prize for the first time despite 13 years of lavish investment.

Even reaching this semi-final required a fight in court to overturn a ban from this season's Champions League for breaching UEFA's financial rules.

And it's only two weeks since the Abu Dhabi-owned team exposed themselves to fresh sanctions for joining a brief, ill-fated bid to split to form a breakaway European Super League.

Now City could win the competition they tried to leave in what could be an all-English final on May 29 in Istanbul if Chelsea overcome Real Madrid in London on Wednesday - the tie is level at 1-1.
