Half time: Manchester City 0 – 0 Borussia Dortmund

It has been a fairly uneventful first half. City have looked great in possession whilst Dortmund, especially with Modeste as an outlet, have looked dangerous on the counter.

Haaland has barely had a sniff, but he no doubt would have scored if it weren't for Sule's great clearance.

20:4121 days ago


Bellingham dances down the left flank and tries to pick out Modeste but Rodri does well to thwart the danger.
20:2721 days ago


Cancelo lines up a shot from 25 yards out but his effort flies over the crossbar.
20:2121 days ago


Reus delivers the ball into the City area and Modeste bullies Stones and Akanji to get his head on it, yet the ball trickles away.

The Frenchman is having joy against the hosts' backline thus far.

20:1721 days ago


Ozcan glides towards the City box and cuts inside. He fires at goal but his curling effort is held well by Ederson.
20:1621 days ago


Mahrez gets to the byline and his tasty cross is begging for Haaland to head it home, but Sule does expertly well to just about nod the ball away.

That was close.

20:1421 days ago


World class from Cancelo.

The Portuguese drifts past four Dortmund players and gets to the byline but the ball narrowly goes out of play.

20:0921 days ago


Dortmund break away well and Modeste spreads it wide to Reus.

The German whips in a fierce delivery yet Stones does well to head clear.

20:0521 days ago


Mahrez drifts into the left of Dortmund's area but his cross-cum-shot is straight at Meyer.
20:0221 days ago


City work it down the left flank and Cancelo picks up up the ball 20 yards from goal, he looks to pick out Haaland but Meyer comfortably gathers the cross.
