Man City took 20 minutes to force the first big mistake by Borussia Dortmund. Emre Can’s major error in midfield led to the first goal of the match.
The Dortmund player tried to pass the ball in midfield and Mahrez intercepted it. The Algerian quickly countered given Dortmund’s defenders had pushed forward.
¡Llega el primero en el Etihad! ⚽
Tremendo fallo de Emre Can en la entrega, contra vertiginosa del City y, tras un centro raso, Mahrez la puso atrás para que Kevin de Bruyne ponga por delante a los 'citizens' 🔵 pic.twitter.com/IoHc1Fgtqn

Mahrez found De Bruyne, who saw Foden on the left hand side, whose pass to the Algerian was overhit.
The winger appeared again, he stopped the ball with his foot by the by-line and waited for De Bruyne to get away from his marker and then De Bruyne beat Hitz.
