Borussia Dortmund 0-0 Manchester City: City seal top spot despite Mahrez’s miss

Riyad Mahrez has missed three of Manchester City’s last four penalties in all competitions

Riyad Mahrez saved a penalty but Manchester City still sealed top spot in their Champions League group with a draw that also sent Borussia Dortmund through to the last 16.

Mahrez was fouled by Emre Can and headed high, but Gregor Kobel got on the right path to save his shot.

Both sides knew that a draw would be enough to achieve their goals, so everyone will be happy with the result.

City boss Pep Guardiola surprisingly replaced top scorer Erling Haaland at half-time after he had just 13 touches, with Mats Hummels expertly tackling him in the middle.

Dortmund also had good chances, with 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko pulling wide and debutant City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega making several saves.
