Cape Town - Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has declared himself happy with the 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in their first-leg tie of the Champions League quarter-finals.

Kevin De Bruyne fired the Citizens in front at Parc des Princes, before goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Adrian Rabiot on either side of the half-time break gave the home side a slender advantage.

However, it was Fernandinho who had the last say, popping up in the 72nd minute to level the scores and give City a crucial second away goal.

While Manuel Pellegrini's men were unable to push on and grab a winner in the closing stages of the contest, they will certainly be the happier of the two sides.

Aguero confirmed as much after the match, saying: "I am happy with the result. It was a fair tie. It was important that we score a goal as visitors and, as luck would have it, we did.

"We can't take anything for granted. We have 90 minutes more, and we must do our best.

"I have a good feeling. This was an important result and we are going to be very excited to play the [second leg] game, especially because it will be at home in front of all our fans."

According to statistical analyses, almost four out of five teams that have recorded a 2-2 draw away from home go on to progress to the next round of the competition.

However, Aguero is wary of taking anything for granted, adding: "You can't pay too much attention to statistics. We just have to play our best and try to win.

"They have good players which makes for a complicated defence, but we were also able to score two goals against a defence that is very strong."
