Follow all the action as Manchester City defend a slender first-leg lead against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Pep Guardiola’s side started the tie in perfect fashion, capitalising on an error from Emre Can, as Kevin De Bruyne struck early on at the Etihad. However, Dortmund responded valiantly and drew level with just six minutes remaining as Marco Reus stole in and curled a fine finish into the far corner. But with the tie in danger of tilting in Dortmund’s favour, Phil Foden scored a last-gasp winner to ensure City take a lead into tonight’s second leg.
With a semi-final against PSG awaiting tonight’s winner, City will once again have to stifle the prolific threat of Erling Haaland, who endured a relatively quiet game in Manchester, at least by the Norwegian’s own lofty standards. Guardiola has often been accused of overthinking his tactics in key European games as he’s sought to finally bring a long-coveted Champions League title to the Etihad, however, his side remain firm favourites and will be boosted by the absence of Jadon Sancho, who has failed to recover from injury in time to face his old club.
