By Rubén Morales Iglesias: City put out the fire in the 75th minute on a Phil Foden super strike after being against the ropes in Dortmund since the 15th minute when Jude Bellingham put Borussia Dortmund up 1-0.
With 15 minutes left, Foden received a cross from a short corner kick. The English striker reacted instinctively and fired a left-foot power shot that hit the right post beyond the outstretched arms of diving goalkeeper Marwin Hitz.
Relief for City. The 2-1 lead put them up 4-2 on aggregate.
Dortmund struck first on a Jude Bellingham goal in the 15th minute. That put the aggregate score at 2-2 with Dortmund qualifying on away goals had it remained like that. And the game did remain like that until five minutes into the second half when Dortmund committed a controversial handball.
Emre Can handled the ball in the box. In going for a header to clear the ball, his outstretched left hand touched the ball. The referee called a penalty kick though the video assisted referee (VAR) had to be consulted.
When the penalty kick was authorized in the 55th minute, Riyad Mahrez fired a mid-level blast to the right. Hitz guessed right but couldn’t get to the ball and Man City turned the tables on Dortmund with a 3-2 aggregate lead.
At that point Dortmund now needed two goals to move ahead, but it was not be. City held the ball and let time play out.
Manchester City will now face subchamps Paris Saint-Germain in the semifinals.
