From this point onward, however, Sterling would come out on top.
The 26-year-old tucked home City’s 63rd minute equaliser.
He then watched at close quarters as Bernardo Silva teed up Gabriel Jesus to slot home a priceless winner.
The 2-1 triumph confirms City’s status as group winners with a game to spare.
PSG meanwhile will come second, opening them up to a tough Round of 16 clash.
