Erling Haaland lasted 45 minutes against Borussia Dortmund, he looked livid on the bench

Erling Haaland lasted 45 minutes against Borussia Dortmund, he looked livid on the bench

Haaland's return to Signal Iduna Park was underwhelming.

Erling Haaland's returned to Signal Iduna Park as a Manchester City player this evening - but he lasted just 45 minutes against Borussia Dortmund.

City travelled to Germany for this evening's Champions League clash, knowing they needed just a point to qualify top of Group G.

Haaland joined City from Dortmund over the summer, with this being his first game back at his old stomping grounds.

The 22-year-old had a quiet 45 minutes after being marshalled by former teammate Mats Hummels and new arrival Nico Schlotterbeck.

City manager Pep Guardiola decided to change things up at halftime, with Haaland replaced by Bernardo Silva during the interval.

Joao Cancelo was hauled off for Manuel Akanji, who also joined City from Dortmund over the summer.

City were awarded a penalty 11 minutes into the second half after Phil Foden was clumsily brought down by Dortmund midfielder Emre Can.

Haaland took and scored City's penalty in Saturday's 3-1 win over Brighton so it was up to Riyad Mahrez to put the away side ahead.

Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel guessed the right way however, tipping the winger's penalty away.

City are likely keen to rest Haaland given they've still got five games before the Premier League breaks for the World Cup in Qatar.

Haaland came off with City 4-0 up against FC Copenhagen last month, with Guardiola keen to stress his star striker can't play every game.

He told reporters: "It's not about resting players.

"We have a squad of 20 players if you just play 11 you don't have 20 players. The other ones, when you need them, don't work."

A draw will see Dortmund through too, with Sevilla in prime position to take a spot in the Europa League after defeating FC Copenhagen 2-0 earlier on Tuesday.
