Man City vs. Borussia Dortmund result: Haaland magic downs former club in Champions League
ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER — Erling Haaland produced a stunning acrobatic finish to catch a 2-1 titleholders League palm for Manchester City against former club Borussia Dortmund.
Pep Guardiola’s side were lackadaisical for long ages in the Group G clash at Etihad Stadium and, after failing to register a shot on target during the first half,
They fell before to Jude Bellignham’s opportunistic title on the end of Marco Reus ’ 56th- nanosecond shot.
City had still not worried about Alexander Meyer’s net until the 80th nanosecond when John monuments slammed home an doubtful strike from 25 yards.
Haaland also produced another moment to savour four twinkles latter as Dortmund gave Joao Cancelo too much time and space to aim one of his trademark outside-of-the-bottom crosses
The No. 9 slung out his left charge in the skyline to convert from close range. It was Haaland’s 13th goal in eight appearances for his new employers and
26th in 21 career title holders League appearances, icing City made it two triumphs from two in this season’s competition.
And so, the show rolls on. It looked like it wouldn’t be his night. It perhaps should have belonged to Bellingham, who is set to be the next mega-money Dortmund export.
