Mauricio Pochettino said it is difficult to accept Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League loss to Manchester City as he rued a game of “two different halves”.

City seized control of the semi-final tie thanks to Wednesday’s 2-1 victory in Paris, where Pep Guardiola’s visitors produced a sensational second-half turnaround against PSG.

PSG captain Marquinhos opened the scoring in the 15th minute as last season’s runners-up outplayed City in the opening half in the French capital.

But Kevin De Bruyne’s awkward cross-cum-shot found the back of the net just past the hour-mark and Riyad Mahrez’s free-kick put City ahead seven minutes later, while PSG ended the match with 10 men following Idrissa Gueye’s 77th-minute red card.

The Ligue 1 giants face an uphill task reaching the Champions League final for a second consecutive season as head coach Pochettino lamented the manner in which the Ligue 1 champions conceded.
