Dortmund beat Manchester City in Champions Cup

English Champions, Manchester City’s start to pre-season ended in defeat as they lost 1-0 to Dortmund in their opening game of the Champions Cup.

The German team scored through a first half penalty converted by former Bayern player Mario Gotze.

Pep Guardiola’s team that fielded a lot of inexperienced players, but still had room for the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane could not muster much of a threat to the opposing goal as the Germans, who had already played a game earlier looked the sharper team.

Mahrez, who was trying to impress after his move from Leicester City was City’s biggest threat and showed glances of why he was the player of the year two seasons back. But it was not enough to tie the game as the German eventually ran out winners.
