Man City’s defence clearly didn’t account for Marco Reus, though, who found space by running beyond the defence before beating Ederson.

It was English teen sensation Jude Bellingham who played the pass into Erling Haaland, whose ball around the corner was quite sublime.

Reus timed his run to perfection, with the finish clinical. It’s a surgical goal from Dortmund, showing exactly how you can pick the seemingly impenetrable Man City apart.

Dortmund are, via the away goal rule, leading the tie and heading into the semi-finals of the Champions League as it stands.

They won’t be naive enough to get that far ahead of themselves, though, there’s a very long way to go in this one.
