Manchester City qualified to the semi-finals although Dortmund makes it interesting | UEFA Champions League 2020/2021

Manchester City managed to chase the ghost of the quarter-finals. Borussia Dortmund left City shaking for a while with Bellingham 1-0, but after the break, De Bruyne and his teammates corrected the skewed situation. A double confrontation with Paris Saint-Germain awaits in the semi-finals.

Borussia Dortmund – Manchester City in short:

  • Key moment: Dortmund kept the possibility of extending up to 15 minutes before the end, but Fouden’s 1-2 win was a very good thing. After that, the home team could no longer do fists and the match was completely loosened.
  • Man of the Match: In the first half, he liked the 17-year-old Bellingham, but Kevin De Bruyne was really everywhere tonight. Although there was no goal in it, he was again Manchester City’s mover.
  • Special: In recent years, there has always been a mistake with Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. It is the first time under Pep Guardiola that he has reached the semi-finals. Paris Saint-Germain Mbappe and Neymar are waiting there.

Dortmund on the roses thanks to Bellingham

The past three seasons, Man City were knocked out in the quarter-finals under Pep Guardiola and the English did not want to repeat that again with a narrow 2-1 reward from the first leg. With a somewhat conservative approach, they started the party at Signal Iduna Park.

Thus Borussia Dortmund had the opportunity to keep the ball on the team for longer periods. The first chance was hit on the spot. Haaland Stones knocked away, but his shot was still blocked. Bellingham picked up the ball and kicked Ederson’s toes into the square.

The Germans were suddenly sure of their place in the semi-finals and Manchester City had to respond. First, the massive blow from De Bruyne hit the crossbar and immediately after that kept Hitz the next scorer from the equalizer with a leg sweep.

Dortmund groaned at the end of the first half under fierce pressure from the Premier League leaders, but was unbroken (yet). We rested 1-0 on the scoreboard.

Man City turn the game completely

Not an impressive start for Manchester City after the first half, but a quick equalizer. About ten minutes later, Kahn got a very clumsy cross from Foden on his arm. The referee did not hesitate and Mahrez converted the penalty kick without hesitation: 1-1.

Visitors kept getting the best of the match. Dortmund could only save with a Hummels header that went over Ederson’s goal by one meter.

Shortly before entering the Citadel Quarter, the books were allowed to be closed completely. At first, Hitz got in very well with a shot from De Bruyne, but after a minute she was injured. Fodin hit directly from outside the penalty area and made it 1-2.

Dortmund was surprised and no longer had an appropriate answer. Man City can qualify for the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 5 years, and there is a double confrontation with the stars of Paris Saint-Germain.

Foden is already looking forward to a duel with Mbappé
