Champions League – Man City crash with defeat at Dortmund

Champions League Group D, Signal Iduna Park – Borussia Dortmund 1 (Schieber 57) Manchester City 0

Manchester City finished rock bottom of their Champions League group after slumping to a 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park.

Julian Schieber slide home substitute Jakub Blaszczykowski’s low cross just shy of the hour mark and his first goal for his new club condemned the Premier League champions to finishing the ‘Group of Death’ as the only side not to continue on in Europe.

Dortmund were already guaranteed to progress to the knockout phase as group winners with runners-up Real Madrid, but the match day six results mean Ajax move into the Europa League despite a 4-1 defeat at the Bernabeu.
