In Dortmund, Pep Guardiola finally broke through the quarter-final curse in his fifth season as Manchester City boss.

Pep Guardiola’s dream for a first Champions League triumph with Manchester City remains alive after the Citizens completed a double over Borussia Dortmund.

Having won the first leg 2-1, City could be edged out with a 1-0 Dortmund win and that was the case 15 minutes into the game when Jude Bellingham shot Dortmund into the lead. City reacted well and scored two goals to end the tie at 2:1, making it 4:2 in aggregate.

This will be their first time of breaking the quarter final jinx since Pep Guardiola took over the coaching position at Manchester City.

Pep has this to say after the match “I am incredibly happy for this club, for this organization, for our chairman, our players, our fans … for everyone.

“It’s the second time we get to the semi-finals in our club, there is not much history here. We were brilliant, except for the first 10 minutes when they were good. And the last three minutes of the second half we were so good. I am incredibly happy to be in the semi-finals, the best four teams in Europe. We are going to try and arrive good and play a good game.”

“This competition is nice but at the same time it is so unfair,”

“We are judged on it. If we go out we are a failure, the season is a disaster when you play 11 monthsd for the Premier League, for the Cups, for everything.

“Look, today it was a penalty with a hand and maybe it could be not given. And we were out for a hand against Tottenham in the quarter-finals against Llorente that was not given. That is why this competition depends on these situations. But the way we played in the last three minutes of the first half and the second half was brilliant. We passed the ball and we passed the ball and we did it.”

Will he go all the way this time?

That we will have to wait for.
