England’s Manchester City won their first quarterfinal match against Borussia Dortmund. The opponents fought in the Champions League playoffs. City hit the bumblebee goal twice.
On the 19th minute of the game, De Bruyne scored for the “townspeople”. Jan made a gross mistake in the center of the field, giving the ball to the opponent, after which City scored. De Bruyne accelerated in the center, then found Foden at the left edge of the penalty area, he shot to the far post, and Marez did not start shooting from an acute angle, rolling the ball to Kevin. The Belgian shot the gates of Borussia in touch.
At the beginning of the second half, the guests had a great chance to equalize. Holland pushed Dias through, burst into the penalty area of City, but failed to push the ball past Ederson, who came out of the goal.
At 65th, Foden was in the spotlight. De Bruyne walked along the front and rolled the ball to Foden under the blow from the center of the penalty area – Phil shot straight at Hitz.
Towards the end of the match, Royce managed to restore the balance. Holland made a one-touch pass into City’s penalty area, where Royce burst in full swing and shot right into the corner of the goal.
City was not taken aback and was able to snatch victory in the 90th minute of the duel. De Bruyne performed a luxurious diagonal transfer to the corner of the goalkeeper, where Gundogan handled the ball and threw it on Foden. Phil struck the bottom under the far post.
Guardiola’s team is winning, but this is a rather alarming score on the eve of the “response” in Germany.
Manchester City – Borussia Dortmund 2: 1 (1: 0)
Goals: De Brayne, 19 (1: 0); Royce, 84 (1: 1); Foden, 90 (2: 1).
