Phil Foden netted a late goal to ensure Manchester City would win the first-leg of their Champions League tie with Borussia Dortmund.

Kevin De Bruyne scored in the first-half, with Dortmund not able to provide a reply until the 84th minute, when Marco Reus found the back of the net, with Erling Haaland providing the assist.

Dortmund must have thought they’d be heading back to Germany with a slender, away goal lead, having scored so late, but Phil Foden had other ideas.

A superb pass from Kevin De Bruyne landed at the feet of Ilkay Gundogan, who laid the ball off to Phil Foden. The youngster kept his cool and found the finish.

Man City now have to be considered firm favourites to progress to the semi-final stage of the competition, whereas a 1-1 draw would have left it on a knife edge.

There’s still work to do, no doubt, but this City side are just too strong. They’re inevitable.
