Compilation Of Kevin De Bruyne's Performance Against Borussia Dortmund Shows He's In A League Of His Own

Compilation Of Kevin De Bruyne's Performance Against Borussia Dortmund Shows He's In A League Of His Own

Kevin De Bruyne conjured up yet another sensational showing as Manchester City beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the Champions League quarter final first leg.

The Belgian midfield metronome opened the scoring when he got on the end of Riyad Mahrez's cut-back in the first half and in a tough but entertaining fixture, he provided a late moment of quality that resulted in City taking a lead into the second leg at this stage for the first time in the competition.

It was looking like Dortmund's important away goal from Marco Reus five minutes from time was going to see them return to Signal Iduna Park with a 1-1 draw but City's talisman and captain had other ideas.

Mere days after playing one of the passes of the season against Leicester City, De Bruyne came up with another gem when he picked out Ilkay Gundogan beautifully with his left foot in the 89th minute.

After the pass just missed the head of Thomas Meunier, Gundogan controlled the ball and found Foden, who capped off an impressive European performance with the winning goal.

De Bruyne was his usual self and produced another display that shows just why many believe he is the best midfielder in world football at present.

The weight of his passes and crosses, his decision-making and ability to dictate the tempo of the game, it's a truly scary level that De Bruyne has been playing at on a consistent basis.

De Bruyne's display not only had fans salivating at the mouth, but Aston Villa skipper and self-confessed KDB enthusiast Jack Grealish was left in awe.

Match-winner Foden heaped praise on De Bruyne, telling City's official website: "We know how special he is. He always finds the right pass at the right time.

"It's a relief, we had a lot of chances before that to put us way up. In the end I'm just happy to score and help the team in a crucial time for us."
