Manchester City clashed heads with Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park earlier tonight as they hoped to pick up a victory on the road in the UEFA Champions League. The Mancunian giants made a dominant start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

Pep Guardiola’s men kept dominating possession in the second half as the contest finished 0-0 with Man City being held to a frustrating draw away from home.

CB: Ruben Dias – 7/10
