Foden Hands Man City Late Advantage Against Dortmund
Phil Foden struck a 90th minute winner as Man City took a slender 2-1 lead from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
Foden had missed a series of chances to double City’s lead earlier in the second-half, but made amends at the death to give Pep Guardiola’s men the advantage with the second leg to come in Germany on April 14.
But despite the England league topper’s win at their stadium, there was a lot of controversy in the first-half of the game, which could have changed the surface of the encounter.
It all happened in the 36th minute of the game, when a poor back pass from a Manchester city player to Ederson, who controlled the ball but was dispossessed by Jude Bellingham, which the midfielder moved forward with the ball before slotting it into the net.
But the center referee wasted no time to blow his whistle for a foul on Ederson and went ahead to give Bellingham a yellow card.
