Riyad Mahrez was on target as Manchester City secured a 2-1 away victory against Borussia Dortmund. The German side caused a major scare as Jude Bellingham scored the first goal, becoming the second-youngest goalscorer in Champions League history at just 17 years old.
However, Manchester City had some chances to pull one back as Kevin De Bruyne hit the crossbar and Mahrez came close but in the 55th minute, Algerian international Riyad Mahrez justified his inclusion in Pep Guardiola’s starting 11 as he scored from the penalty spot after Emre Can be adjudged to have handled in the box.
Mahrez’s goal meant that he has broken a 14-game goal drought in European matches. Young prodigy Phil Foden completed the turnaround after he fired a fierce effort into the back of the net and celebrated in grand style as he ran to hug Pep Guardiola.
With English forward Raheem Sterling out of form, Pep Guardiola has been having Riyad Mahrez in his starting lineups and he has been doing very well. Mahrez was eventually substituted in the 88th minute as Manchester City secured qualification into the UCL semifinals.
Manchester City would now face French giants Manchester City in a match that promises to be a mouth-watering clash. Spanish giants Real Madrid would also face Chelsea in the second semifinal match-up.
