Erling Haaland delivers the final dagger to deny his former team a victory.
Manchester City recorded a historic game as they were officially unbeaten in the last 21 Champions League home games (19 wins and 2 draws) and tied the record of Chelsea that also made the similar feat of longest unbeaten run between September 2006 – December 2009.
Borussia Dortmund are very familiar with what to expect from Erling Haaland; he recorded 86 goals in 89 prolific appearances for the German club. Despite the familiarity of Dortmund, they still did not get away from the player’s dominance as Erling helped Manchester to turn the favor on their side.
The first half of the match was scoreless as Man City struggled to break down the tight low blocking defense of Dortmund causing them to have few shots on the angle. While Dortmund are pretty efficient in preserving their possessions and taking the time on their sides. Ozcan recorded the lone attempt of Dortmund in the first half but was easily saved by Ederson.
Coming into the second half, the game became pretty intense as both teams made significant moves starting with Dortmund’s Bellingham scoring the goal at the 56th minute mark with an assist by Reus to gain the momentum over the host. However, the remaining minutes turned into a series of attacks from the home squad. Donyell Malen received a yellow card for Dortmund – a foreshadowing of the worst things to come for the visitor. John Stones scored an equalizer for the City with an assist from Bruyne. Stones received the ball from the edge of the box and fired it past Meyers who did not even try to block.
The final judgment of the match came during the 84th minute mark when the young star Erling Haaland scored the winning goal in a stunning way. Cancelo made a cross and an assist from the back post right in the direction of Haalnd who made an acrobatic finish to send his former team to a disappointing defeat. Haaland recorded 13 goals within nine games for City with an undefeated record in the Champions League group stage.
“In the end we showed what we are,” Haaland told BT Sport. “Dortmund were really good today (but) three points is what matters.”
The next game for Manchester City in the Champions League is against Copenhagen this upcoming October 6, who had a 0-0 draw against Sevilla.
