Manchester City 2-1 Borussia Dortmund: Erling Haaland wins as hosts come from behind

Erling Haaland was frustrated with his former team-mates for a long time

Erling Haaland’s superb strike ended Manchester City’s dramatic comeback and condemned former club Borussia Dortmund to a painful Champions League defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

City fought back against a calm Dortmund side, who took the lead when the excellent Jude Bellingham headed home Marco Reus’ cross on 56 minutes.

Pep Guardiola’s side looked for inspiration and equalized when defender John Stones beat Dortmund goalkeeper Alexander Meyer.

Inevitably, it was left to Haaland to create a truly special moment four minutes later, showing superb athleticism to rise in the air and score from Joao Cancelo’s cross.
