Joe Hart stopped Zlatan Ibrahimovic again, and again, and Manchester City is onto its first UEFA Champions League semifinal after a 3-2 aggregate win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite missing Raheem Sterling and Vincent Kompany, Manchester City stood tall on Tuesday at the Etihad Stadium during a second leg that saw Kevin De Bruyne score a magnificent goal in a 1-0 win.

De Bruyne was thrilled, and so was Hart. Man City is two wins from being kings of Europe.

From the BBC:

“An amazing night for us. We have worked hard in this competition. We struggled to start with but we have started to compete.

“Credit to PSG, I thought they made it a fantastic encounter. I thought we really did shine in this leg. Fantastic from the whole team, even those not on the bench.”

It’s been reported that Pep Guardiola is seeking a new keeper for his 2016-17 City side. We imagine departing manager Manuel Pellegrini might suggest the current one.
