hampions League - LIVE!

It was a mixed night for the English clubs in the Champions League as Manchester City earned a slender lead over Borussia Dortmund but Liverpool were well-beaten by Real Madrid in Spain.

City needed a last-minute winner from Phil Foden to secure a 2-1 win, after Marco Reus’ late away goal had threatened to give Dortmund the upper-hand heading into the second leg. Kevin de Bruyne had opened the scoring early on, but the visitors had seen a Jude Bellingham goal disallowed by a dreadful decision.

Liverpool, meanwhile, had looked back to form in beating Arsenal on Saturday, but were all at sea in the first half in Madrid as Vinicius Jr. and Marco Asensio put Madrid two goals to the good. Mo Salah pulled one back soon after half-time but Vinicius quickly re-established the two-goal cushion which held out until full-time for a 3-1 win.

On Wednesday, Chelsea are looking to make amends for a shock loss to West Brom as they face Porto in Seville, while Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in a repeat of last season’s final

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has responded to Jurgen Klopp's "strange" stadium remark after Liverpool's humbling loss on Tuesday.

The game was being played at Real Madrid's 6,000-seat Di Stefano Stadium, which is home to their 'B' side, with the club using the absence of fans to speed up renovations on their Santiago Bernabeu home.

That has been the case since for nearly a year, a "strange" situation which Klopp hopes may work in his favour with the second leg being held at a "proper" stadium.

"It must be a really tricky task for Real Madrid at Anfield, with or without supporters," he said. "Tonight was really strange, it was a difficult and different situation because of the stadium.

"Anfield is at least a proper stadium and that will be good for us."

When asked about Klopp's remarks, Zidane simply said: "I don't have an opinion about what Jurgen says, we are proud to play in this stadium."

The midfielder was replaced by Thiago Alcantara before the interval, with many people having expected the Spaniard to start in the first place.

“It’s not a big story,” he insisted. “I don’t like it. He wasn’t the only one. It was tactical. I could have done a few more changes in that moment.”

“It was difficult. We played against a good side. The way we did in the first half wasn’t good. We lost it quickly with simple passes. Two moments of not concentrating enough and they scored.

“We said in the second half we have to play our football and not lose the ball too easily and concentrate more. They were a few times dangerous with long balls. We played our own game [at times after the break] and that’s why we scored. Unfortuntately, they scored and that makes it more difficult.”

“The season in September started this way and never stopped. It has been an incredible run of games, the team has responded well to the challenge this year. 

“We are in a good situation and a little bit privileged because we are able to compete for every trophy. We try to prepare game by game.”

All in all you would say City are just about worthy of their win. Dortmund have every right to be upset - but they’ve still managed to get an away goal so this tie is not over if the score stays like this.

He’s done it!

It’s a brilliant goal, too, as De Bruyne finds Gundogan with a deep ball to the back post and he lays back for Foden to sweep home.
