    Guardiola praises 'dynamic' Foden after Champions League winner

    Jude Bellingham scored the opener for Dortmund in the quarter-final second leg but City hit back through Riyad Mahrez and Foden in the second half to secure a 4-2 win on aggregate. Foden, who also scored the winner in their 2-1 first-leg victory at home last week, made his City debut in 2017 as a substitute in a Champions League game against Feyenoord but limited playing time in the last couple of seasons meant he was linked with loan moves away.

    Goal dry up for Haaland but Dortmund coach happy with contribution

    Haaland has not scored in his last seven games for club and country, including two league and two Champions League games for Dortmund and three World Cup qualifiers with Norway last month. The last time he found the net was in a 2-2 draw with Cologne in the Bundesliga on March 20, when he scored both Dortmund's goals. The 20-year-old is the most sought after talent in the European game and has been linked with a move to Manchester City and their local rivals Manchester United as well as Spanish sides Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The group, which included Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund PIF, PCP Capital Partners and Reuben Brothers, said last year they were ending their interest in the deal, which had been delayed by the Premier League's owners and directors test.

    Real frustrate Liverpool to move into last four

    Real Madrid moved into the semi-finals of the Champions League after their makeshift defence held on for 0-0 second-leg draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday to complete a 3-1 aggregate win. The Spanish side will face Chelsea in the last four as they search for their fifth Champions League title in eight years. Liverpool, the 2019 Champions League winners, created enough chances in the opening 45 minutes to have turned the tie around but they ran out of ideas in the second half.
