April 14, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The trio landed special feats in Wednesday night's quarter-final encounter as City booked a spot among the last four.

Pep Guardiola, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham landed Champions League milestones for their respective contributions in Wednesday's clash between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City. The latter overcame an early scare to book their place in the semi-final stage of the competition, and are set to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the penultimate tie.

Ahead of the encounter, Man City held a goal advantage, having secured a 2-1 win in the first leg at the Etihad Stadium. They were however subjected to a surprise start at the Westfalenstadion, with Jude Bellingham scoring the game's opener for Dortmund in the 15th minute. As a result, the 17-year-old prodigy entered the history books as the second-youngest player to score in the knockout phase of the European cup competition.

Having taken the goal deficit into half-time, Man City managed a response just 10 minutes after play resumed in the second half. They benefited from a controversial penalty call after Emre Can was whistled for handball. Riyad Mahrez subsequently stepped up to convert the opportunity, putting his side ahead on aggregate. Phil Foden then completed the comeback with another stunning effort in the 75th minute. The Englishman, as a result, became the first U21 player after Kylian Mbappe to score in a two-legged Champions League quarter-final tie.

Meanwhile, with the result, Pep Guardiola reached his eighth UEFA Champions League semi-final. As a result, he has matched José Mourinho record as the managers with the most semi-final appearances in the history of the competition.
