0 121

Manchester City staged a late fightback to defeat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Group G blockbuster at Etihad Stadium stadium, on Wednesday.

Jude Bellingham gave the visitors the lead 11 minutes into the second half after the first 45 minutes of action ended goallessly.

John Stones levelled for the home side in the 80th minute, before Erling Haaland scored the lead for City four minutes later against his former club after he was set up by Cancelo.

Haaland, aged 22 years and 55 days, is now the youngest player in Champions League history to score for and against the same side in the competition (Borussia Dortmund), surpassing Álvaro Morata for/against Real Madrid (22y 194d).

In the Champions League Group E clash between Chelsea and Red Bull Salzburg at Stamford Bridge, the Blues managed to take a point.

Raheem Sterling handed the Graham Potter’s men the 48th minute after the first half ended in a barren draw.

Chelsea were denied their first European victory of the season after Noah Okafor equalised for the visitors in injury time.

With the result, the West Londoners have gone Champions League two matches without a win this season having lost their opener to Dinamo Zagreb last week.

Chelsea owners sacked former manager Thomas Tuchel after the defeat to Zagreb.
