Can one of the teams still score the winning goal?

Dortmund presses hard, the ball comes through Bellingham and Haaland to Reus, who lends it into the penalty area.

The captain can secure the ball strongly, closes in front of Ederson and scores to equalize!

76th Minute:

Kevin De Bruyne takes the measure and closes a meter from the sixteenth, his attempt goes just barely wrong.

Hitz would probably not have been able to parry that.

The home side do it professionally and seem to have taken their flow from the league back into the premier class.

Dortmund can interfere well and avoid attacks by the English, but black and yellow just can't get the ball.

68th Minute:

City simply has the power to push at any moment and disturbs Dortmund in every situation.

After Erling Haaland's great chance, Dortmund could no longer challenge Ederson.

64th minute:

and the one hundred percent for ManCity!

De Bruyne prevails and runs to the baseline, finding Foden in the middle.

But he closes directly flat in front of the open goal and awards the 2-0.

62nd Minute:

After a tough foul on Haaland, there is a free kick from 17 meters from the goal for BVB.

Marco Reus' attempt got stuck in the wall and the margin failed.

After the action, the starting eleven-debutant Knauff goes, for him Gio Reyna comes into play.

57th Minute:

Even after just under an hour, Guardiola's team does not allow much, but here too the creative actions and balls in depth are missing.

Gabriel Jesus comes for Bernardo Silva.

54th Minute:

Dortmund wants, but the pressing of the light blue is just too intense at the moment.

In this situation, BVB lacks creativity in possession of the ball.

51st Minute:

Knauff takes a corner out for BVB, Guerreiro brings it in sharply, but ManCity can clear it up and start a counterattack, at the end of which Phil Foden seeks the conclusion.

However, it goes a long way next to Hitz's box.

48th minute:

And suddenly the mega chance for BVB!

Haaland gets the ball in the top and lets himself be pushed outwards a little.

In the end, Ederson has the upper hand and can clear the action.

The Dortmunders do it well despite the deficit, put City under pressure and could even have taken the lead had the rather nervous-looking referee not intervened.

38th Minute:

Bellingham goes strong against Ederson, grabs the ball and pushes it into the goal!

But this time Hategan whistles immediately and avoids a VAR check of the scene.

The BVB professional had probably not met the keeper and was only on the ball. Bitter for Dortmund.

Knauff hits the ball in a duel against Gündogan, but Hategan gives the host the foul and the free kick.

Hitz can hold on to an attempt by Foden to follow the standard.

Referee Hategan checks the scene ...

26th minute:

After the opening

goal

for ManCity, BVB is visibly incited, the duels are becoming increasingly intense.

The Terzic squad can get the balls, but the best defensive in the Premier League has not been impressed so far.

22nd Minute:

The answer from Dortmund is still a long time coming, BVB cannot yet penetrate the penalty area decisively.

18th minute:

GOAL!

With the first clear chance, ManCity hits 1-0, Emre Can loses the ball in midfield and De Bruyne is through on the left.

His cross pass to Mahrez is a bit too steep, but he can secure the ball on the baseline and lands on De Bruyne.

He can slide in flat, very ripped off goal of the English.

17th minute:

It's an even game between the two teams.

Dortmund shows a good game of transition and was able to put the "Skyblues" under a lot of pressure in some situations.

However, a good final conclusion is still missing,

14.Minute:

The Bundesliga team continues to play a good game, even if the ball losses are increasing.
