Yesterday, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund faced off in the first leg of the Champions League Quarterfinal. Ahead of the game, it seemed to be a good matchup as both clubs have done well in there respective leagues in recent years. Manchester City have had a great season and are first in the Premier League (ahead by 13 points), while Dortmund sit fifth in the German league. Manchester City have an all round good squad with the likes of Belgian superstar Kevin De Bruyne and the world class manager Pep Guardiola. Dortmund’s team is pretty decent throughout but their main star is Erling Haaland who at the moment seems to be one of the best players in the world. City were the favorites before the game started but many pundits had doubts as they always seem to make it this far and give up.
