The Algeria winger scored a second-half free kick to give Man City a vital 2-1 advantage after the first leg in Paris.
Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has admitted his match-winner against Paris Saint-Germain was a miss-hit.
Mahrez curled home a 25-yard free-kick that went through the PSG wall and beyond Keylor Navas to give Pep Guardiola’s side a vital first-leg advantage in their Champions League semi-final.
However, the Algeria international has now confessed the ball did not go where he intended.
Speaking about his goal after the game, the former Leicester player told City’s website: “I wanted to go around the wall to be honest and I missed it, it went between the two players and fortunately it was in.
“I was so happy, I knew we could win here and to score to make it 2-1 for the team was amazing.”
Mahrez also revealed that team-mate Benjamin Mendy predicted Mahrez would score the winner 24 hours previously.
“It’s all because of Ben,” added Mahrez. “He asked God and God gave me this goal.”
