Mahrez Fires City To First Champions League Final 

Riyad Mahrez scored twice to complete Manchester City’s journey to a first-ever UEFA Champions League final with a 2-0 victory, eliminating Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 on aggregate in the semifinals on Tuesday.

City will be favourites for the final after an outstanding campaign which has included seven straight wins in this competition, the first English club to achieve that feat.
