Borussia Dortmund vs. Manchester City: Final score 1-0, Citizens done with Europe

Lars Baron

Manchester City are out of Europe entirely after their loss in Dortmund.

Ajax will have the privilege of competing in the knockout stage of the Europa League, thanks to a goal by Borussia Dortmund's Julian Schreiber. Manchester City's poor UEFA Champions League campaign came to a fitting end on Tuesday, as they were sunk by Borussia Dortmund, 1-0. They leave European competition after finishing fourth in the group, and they will have the rest of the season to concentrate on domestic football.

The game's lone goal came in the 57th minute by way of a fantastic setup by substitute Jakub Blaszczykowski. Jurgen Klopp rested his star winger to start the match, but 'Kuba' ignited his side's attack when he made an appearance off the bench. He set up Schreiber's goal beautifully, and the finish just required a simple poke.

City had nothing for Dortmund in the closing minutes, and never looked much like finding an equalizer. The home side held on for a very comfortable win to close their group stage campaign on a high note. They had the group wrapped up before Tuesday night, but Klopp will be hoping his side can carry some momentum into their domestic campaign after this win.
