Paris-Manchester City: Close but no cigar
Paris Saint-Germain will be ruing a host of missed opportunities in the second half of their 0-0 draw with Manchester City in Wednesday night's UEFA Cup tie but still have a chance of qualifying for the next round.
Halfway through the second term however, Le Guen brought on in-form attackers Ludovic Giuly and Guillaume Hoarau for Pancrate and Kezman and the face of PSG, and the game, changed.
Paris took charge of the match, raining down strikes on City 'keeper Ben Hart for the final twenty minutes of the game, going agonizingly close notably through Luyindula and Hoarau, but the final touch and the right finish always eluded Le Guen's side and the match finished goalless.
Out of their hands
The draw sees Manchester City remain on top of UEFA Cup Group a with seven points while Paris stay bottom of the group on two points with one game left to play. Paris can still qualify however if Spain's Racing Santander beat City and the men from the French capital can beat Holland's FC Twente by a greater margin.
So effectively, even if Paris can notch their first win of the UEFA Cup campaign, qualification still isn't entirely in their hands, which could leave them ruing the plethora of missed chances that let City off the hook.
