Jude Bellingham Scores First Champions League Goal With Stunning Strike Against Man City
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham scored for the first time in the Champions League on Wednesday as Borussia Dortmund took the lead against Manchester City.
City won the first-leg quarter-final clash 2-1 at the Etihad last week to take control of the Champions League tie.
Bellingham was controversially denied an equaliser in the first leg and was booked for a foul on Ederson instead.
But the 17-year-old Dortmund starlet had the last laugh in the return leg at the Westfalenstadion as he opened the scoring in stunning style.
Emre Can floated a superb pass over the City defence as Erling Haaland managed to beat John Stones to the loose ball and held the centre-back off.
Haaland picked out an onrushing Mahmoud Dahoud, whose first-time strike ricocheted off Ruben Dias and into the path of Bellingham.
Bellingham controlled the ball superbly with his first touch, shifting it on to his right foot and then unleashing his strike past Ederson.
Bellingham's opener will be satisfying for the English teenage sensation after he admitted his frustration at referee Ovidiu Hategan over his controversial call at the Etihad.
The England international told BT Sport at the time: "I definitely think I won the ball fairly.
"It's a bit frustrating at a time when they've got so many cameras and so many TVs watching the game that they don't wait for me to put it in the net and then check it.
"It's football and it's life, we have to get on with it, really.
"All I got told was that I got booked and it's going to be a free-kick for them. I think they should have checked it but apparently I had my studs up, caught the goalie and it was a foul."
Dortmund lead City 1-0 at the Westfalenstadion going into half-time.
