Manchester City 2-1 Borussia Dortmund: Phil Foden scores late winner in Champions League quarter-final first leg

Report as Dortmund were minutes away from a draw in first leg after Marco Reus equalised Kevin De Bruyne’s opener; Phil Foden capped a fantastic display with a late winner as Man City take slim advantage into second leg.

Phil Foden shone and scored a late winner as Manchester City ran out 2-1 winners over Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Pep Guardiola has never made it past the last eight in the Champions League with City and this looked set to be another frustrating night when Marco Reus equalised with six minutes left, cancelling out Kevin De Bruyne’s first-half opener.
