Manchester City well-placed after draw in Paris

PARIS — Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho punished some slack defending to help Manchester City grab a valuable 2-2 draw away to Paris Saint-Germain in an error-strewn first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday.

Poor concentration cost both sides, but Fernandinho gave City the edge for the second leg when he bundled the ball home after a mix-up between right back Serge Aurier and center half Thiago Silva in the 72nd minute.

City scored against the run of play in the 38th through Belgium winger Kevin De Bruyne, but a huge mistake from midfielder Fernando gifted PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic an equalizer three minutes later.

With PSG in control, midfielder Adrien Rabiot tapped home in the 59th after City goalkeeper Joe Hart had saved Edison Cavani’s header from Angel Di Maria’s corner.
