UCL: Bellingham's Volley Ends Dortmund, Sevilla In Draw, Man

Jude Bellingham Scores Against Sevilla

Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham scored to salvage a 1-1 draw against visitors Sevilla in their Champions League Group G match on Tuesday which guaranteed Manchester City through to the next round. 

Pep Guardiola's side become the first side to qualify for the Round of 16 stages of the Champions League this season.

Under new coach Jorge Sampaoli, who replaced Julen Lopetegui five days ago, Sevilla delivered a much-improved performance from their 4-1 home loss to Dortmund last week, taking charge and looking sharper in the attack.

Dortmund, who had battled back from two goals down against Bayern Munich to draw 2-2 on Saturday in the Bundesliga, were on the back foot at the start.

Sevilla's Ivan Rakitic fired over the bar in the 12th minute but he turned provider and delivered a perfect assist six minutes later, floating a free kick into the box for Tanguy Nianzou to power in a header.

The hosts, needing a win to secure their spot in the next round, took the fight to Sevilla and levelled in the 35th through in-form Bellingham.

The England international, who has now scored in each of Dortmund's four group matches, volleyed home from a well-executed move down the right wing, to become only the third teenager to score in four consecutive Champions League matches after Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

But Sevilla again enjoyed the better start after the break and should have done better in the 67th minute when Erik Lamela's effort from a metre out was smothered by keeper Gregor Kobel with what was the save of the match.

The result means City, top on 10 points after their 0-0 draw at FC Copenhagen, are certain of a top-two finish with two rounds of matches remaining.

Dortmund, second on seven points, will look to seal their spot in the knockout stage when they host City on Oct. 25. Sevilla, in the third spot on two points, still have a slim chance of reaching the last 16.
