Mahrez dissatisfied, Dortmund won!

Despite Riyad Mahrez’s missed penalty in Dortmund, Manchester City and Erling Haaland

kept mute throughout the break (0-0). Dortmund seized the chance to advance to eighth


Dortmund and Manchester City left with a goalless draw (0-0) which suits both teams on

Wednesday in the Champions League, City finishing first in Group G and Dortmund securing

their ticket to the knockout stages. Sevilla, third, and winner of Copenhagen (3-0), are only

three units behind the Germans before the last day, but Borussia having the particular

advantage of goals (4-1, 1-1), it can no longer be overtaken by the Andalusians. The Citizens,

for their part, with 11 units on the clock, crossed almost without forcing – except perhaps in

the first leg where Dortmund led 1-0 at the Etihad – the group stage before a last match for

butter against Sevilla next Wednesday.

At kickoff, Pep Guardiola made a number of other decisions as well, start ing Stefan Ortega


for the first time this year in goal and taking Erling Haaland off the field of play after only 45

minutes. imply that neither team attempted to win. Locals deservedly took the lead in the

first half, particularly Youssoufa Moukoko who had several excellent opportunities.

Riyad Mahrez’s penalty shot around the hour mark particularly well-stopped by Swiss goalkeeper Gregor Kobel. In the second half, it was City who were more dangerous.

The Algerian missed a second penalty in C1 after missing one against Copenhagen, and Manchester City is the poorest English team in this exercise throughout this time span with 25 missed penalties since the 2016–17 season. However, only statisticians will be in all of this in the end. For the eighth-place draw, set for November 7, City is good position in the first hat, that of the clubs that will get on the return. He will also be able to concentrate on the three Premier League games he still needs to play before elimination from contention for the World Cup-2022.
