Manchester City beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on Wednesday at the Westfalenstadion to go through to the last four of the Champions League. Borussia Dortmund got the first goal of the match in the 15th minute through English teenager Jude Bellingham. But Man City hit back ten minutes after the break as they were awarded a penalty. Emre Can handled the ball inside the box and Riyad Maharez stepped up to convert. The German club desperately looked for another goal thereafter. However, it was Man City who capitalized on through a 76th minute Phil Foden winner.

17 year old Bellingham scored his first goal in the Champions League through a superb curler from just inside the box.

In the 51st minute, Emre Can hits the ball on to his own outstretched arm while trying to clear a cross with his head and the referee pointed to the spot. VAR did not overturn the penalty and Man City equalized.

Foden steps up again

Kevin De Bruyne smashed the wood work in the 25th minute. De Bruyne went past a number of Dortmund defenders in the 73rd minute and fired in grounded shot but was denied by a superb save from the Dortmund custodian Marwin Hitz.

Phil Foden smashed in a goal from just outside the box to take the lead for Man City and seal a spot in the semi-final alongside Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG.

The Premier League leaders go through to their first semi-final in six years and only their second ever with an aggregate score line of 4-2.

Man City came into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Leeds united in the Premiere League and Guradiola made seven changes to the team.

Man City will take on the French side PSG in the semi-final.

Pep Guardiola has now reached his eighth Champions League semi-finals, equaling the record of Jose Mourinho. The Spanish coach has previously done it with Barcelone and Bayern Munich but it was his first with an English club.
