UEFA Champions League quarter-final’s first-leg between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund ended with a 2-1 score. Manchester City started the game with good energy and Kevin De Bruyne opened the score in the 19th minute of the game. It was the Belgium international’s fourth goal of the current Champions League season.

 

 

 

 

However, a controversial moment appeared during the game. Borussia Dortmund were awarded a penalty after Emre Can appear to cath Rodri high, however, the replays showed that Rodri exaggerated the contact and the decision was overturned by VAR.

The Bundesliga side then had a goal ruled out, after Jude Bellingham beat Ederson to the ball. However, the referee pulled it back for a foul and showed a yellow card to the youngster.

In the 84th minute of the game, Marco Reus scored an equaliser for the Black and Yellows.

Phil Foden eventually scored the winner for the Citizens in the last minute of the game.
