The start of the match at Wembley Stadium is scheduled for 22:00 Moscow time.Tottenham Londoners at the last stage opposed Borussia Dortmund. The match in England ended with a confident victory for Spurs (3:0), so the away match in Dortmund did not decide much. The guests started their match in Germany not too confidently, the defenders of the Londoners made mistakes, because of which they could well have missed a quick goal from the “bumblebees”. Tottenham hit just one shot towards the opponent’s goal for the entire first half, but this shot was more dangerous than all the moments of the “black and yellow” in the first half hour of the game. We are talking about Heung-Min Son’s scoring chance, which could kill all the intrigue in the 31st minute, the South Korean went one on one with the opponent’s goalkeeper, but he no longer had enough strength for an accurate kick – he missed the goal. Much more interesting for the British began the second half of the match, Moussa Sissoko gave a chic split pass, and Harry Kane confidently converted out one on one – 0:1 in the 49th minute. The striker’s goal finally killed the intrigue, then the guests’ players began to save energy and play to save the winning score. The Capitals won and are now preparing for the English derby Tottenham – Manchester City. Manchester City The Mancunians also won the first match against Schalke (2:3), although the Gelsenkirchens still had hopes for a return game, despite three goals conceded at home. The hosts wanted to score an early goal, so they started the second leg very aggressively, preventing the Schalke players from even getting close to their goal. The main events began to develop from the 35th minute, when Sergio Aguero converted a penalty kick, after a violation by Jeffrey Brum – 1:0. Very soon the Argentinean was celebrating his second goal scored, Raheem Sterling felt his partner and gave an excellent pass, and the attacker shot hard into the near corner – 2:0. The hosts continued to go on the attack and increased the gap even before the break. Leroy Sanya managed to make the score 3:0, the German took a pass from Oleksandr Zinchenko and calmly beat the goalkeeper – 3:0 in the 41st minute. The teams went to the break with a huge advantage of City. The Sky Blues continued their mockery of the opponent after the break, Raheem Sterling scored in the 56th minute, the Englishman closed the flank pass from Sane – 4:0. Sane reigned on his flank and in the moment with the fifth goal, it was the German midfielder who shot at Bernardo Silva, and the Portuguese could only send the ball into the right corner – 5:0. Guardiola understood that the result had already been made, so in the second half he began to release fresh players on the field, among whom were Foden and Jesus – these two became the authors of the last two goals. First, the pupil of the “citizens” distinguished himself, Foden burst into the penalty area in time, circled the goalkeeper and rolled the ball into an empty net – 6:0.
