The 22 -year-old Haaland broke through the goal of the old host and scored a goal for Manchester City to overtake. In the 84th minute of the game , after receiving an oblique pass from Cancelo in the penalty area, Haaland volleyed into the net at close range. Haaland showed his emotional intelligence by refusing to celebrate after breaking the old home goal.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said in an interview after the game that they had become accustomed to reversals lately, but he didn’t like it. Today they had the wrong formation, were not aggressive and played passively.
He also said that the rhythm of the first half was wrong: “After Foden, B seat and Alvarez came on, we changed the rhythm and scored two wonderful goals. I’m pretty sure, with our first half Stones may not have the guts to try and shoot, but we played with rhythm and momentum, his goal was special and I’m very happy for him.”
For Haaland’s goal, Guardiola said it was a very good goal, and Cruyff scored a very similar goal against Atletico Madrid a long time ago at Barcelona. Glad that Haaland imitated Cruyff.
” Dortmund are an extraordinary team, we weren’t good enough today, but at the same time, it’s always good to have this kind of adaptability, with Alvarez and Haaland we have another an option, and it worked.”
