Watch: Haaland sets up vital Dortmund away goal with lovely one-touch ball


Erling Haaland failed to add to his Champions League goal tally in the first leg of Borussia Dortmund’s quarter-final against Manchester City, but he provided a vital contribution to a vital away goal.

Manchester City looked to be heading towards a comfortable 1-0 victory following Kevin De Bruyne’s early opener and a dominant performance, albeit a little fortunate that the referee came to Ederson’s rescue in the first half.

The hosts hadn’t conceded in the Champions League for 788 minutes and looked set for another clean sheet, but Haaland came up big with a perfect one-touch through-ball into the path of Marco Reus in the 84th minute.

Phil Foden responded with a match-winner six minutes later, making it 2-1 on the night, but Dortmund remain well in the tie thanks to their away goal.

With quick link-up play like that, Haaland certainly looks at home at The Etihad. Pep Guardiola will surely have been keeping an extra close eye on him.
