Manchester City Vs Dortmund (2 - 1)

 Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden were on target to give Manchester City a narrow advantage at the halfway point of the tie.

Match in brief

Foden’s 90th-minute strike gave Josep Guardiola’s side a narrow lead in this last-eight showdown with Dortmund. His vital intervention came more than 70 minutes after Kevin De Bruyne had started and finished a City counterattack for the opener. 

When Foden rolled the ball across goal to reach Riyad Mahrez beyond the back post, the latter's cutback found De Bruyne arriving in the box, and the captain shifted it neatly into his stride to steer home.

A threat throughout, Dortmund levelled late on as Marco Reus latched onto Erling Haaland’s through ball to slot past Ederson and seemingly snatch a draw for BVB. However, Foden’s subsequent close-range finish, teed up by İlkay Gündoğan following a lasered pass by De Bruyne, sealed the hosts' victory in Manchester.

Player of the Match: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

"A goalscorer, but more importantly at the centre of everything good for City tonight, with and without the ball. He brought purpose to City's play, intent and threat, with his constant and energetic attacking play. Another false nine display that showed great understanding and space awareness in his performance."

Roberto Martínez, UEFA Technical Observer
