Haaland hurts Dortmund with late Man City winner
MANCHESTER, England – Erling Haaland grabbed an 84th-minute winner against his former club Borussia Dortmund as Manchester City came from behind with two late goals to seal a 2-1 win in Champions League Group G on Wednesday.
The Norwegian has now scored 13 goals in eight games since making his move from the Bundesliga club and his latest was a brilliant finish as he leaped to guide home a Joao Cancelo cross with the outside of his left foot.

Pep Guardiola’s side drew level in the 80th minute when defender John Stones blasted a fierce drive past Alexander Meyer from outside the box.
City, who won their opening group game against Sevilla 4-0, top the standings on six points, three ahead of the Germans.
