City wins group A.

The English football champions turned the game around after falling behind against their direct pursuer Paris Saint-Germain and won 2-1 (0-0) on Wednesday evening. With twelve points, the team of coach Pep Guardiola can no longer be displaced from first place with one remaining matchday.
