Man City set a remarkable Champions League record with Kevin De Bruyne’s opener vs Dortmund

Man City set a remarkable Champions League record with Kevin De Bruyne’s opener vs Dortmund

 

The opening goal in the meeting between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund this evening saw the former etch their name indelibly into the history books of the Champions League.

Liverpool trail/City lucky

Europe’s premiere cup competition has of course returned to our screens on Tuesday.

Both matchups feature Premier League outfits, with Liverpool locked in action with La Liga champions Real Madrid, and Manchester City playing host to Borussia Dortmund.

As things stand, the English pair are enduring altogether differing fortunes, though.

Liverpool trail by 2 goals to nil in Madrid, after Vinicius Jr’s wonderful opener was added to by Marco Asensio shortly before the interval:

The action has come thick and fast in Manchester too, though, with Manchester City hugely fortunate to still hold a 1-0 advantage over Dortmund.

This comes with Ederson’s blushes having been spared by referee Ovidiu Hategan, after Jude Bellingham nipped in to net what, upon replays being broadcast, looked a completely legitimate goal.

KDB makes history

Nevertheless, as things stand, Pep Guardiola’s men remain in front at the Etihad, courtesy of Kevin De Bruyne’s opener just inside twenty minutes.

After Emre Can needlessly surrendered possession in midfield, the hosts surged forward, eventually resulting in Riyad Mahrez pulling back for De Bruyne to slot home at Marwin Hitz’s near post:

And, in the process of taking the lead, City secured a piece of Champions League history for themselves.

As revealed by statisticians OptaJoe, the Sky Blues are now the first team to ever notch 18 goals without reply in the history of Europe’s most famed club competition.
