Champions League: Man City 1-1 Dortmund – Balotelli Penalty Earns City Share Of The Points At The Etihad (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Manchester City 1-1 Borussia Dortmund – Champions League – 3rd October 2012

With only one point from their opening two games, Manchester City now find themselves in serious trouble in the so-called group of death. Roberto Mancini had called tonight’s clash with Borussia Dortmund a ‘must win game’, but the Germans fashioned numerous chances to put City out of sight, only for Joe Hart to come to his side’s rescue time and time again.

Marco Reus did open the scoring for the visitors on 62 minutes, but the Citizens battled back and were eventually awarded a last-gasp penalty kick (somewhat fortuitously) after Neven Subotic handled in the box. Mario Balotelli stroked home to give his side a share of the points. However, getting to the knockout stages of the competition will take a real effort from the Premier League champions now.

    Wow…Dortmund was so much better than City

  2. Toni says:

    It was an outstanding game with a supernatural Hart. Borussia deserved to win though. Their supporters were great as well. 3000 of them, jumping and chanting the entire 90 minutes, three times louder than the 40.000 City fans.

  3. Mike says:

    what a fantastic game of football that was. gutted for Dortmund, deserved to win it. don’t think it was a penalty.

    was wondering whether Dortmund fans are with a strong voice or City fans just aren’t. great supporters!

    greetings from Austria!

    Bundesliga fans travel well if I am not mistaken. Always a rambunctious group!
