Dortmund beats Man City 1-0 in Champions League
DORTMUND, Germany (AP) -Julian Scheiber scored in the second half for Borussia Dortmund to beat Manchester City 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday, ending the English champions' chances of reaching the Europa League.
Schieber scored in the 57th minute following a perfectly timed low cross from the right by substitute Jakub Blaszczykowski. Schieber slid between City defenders Vincent Kompany and Maicon to tap the ball into the net.
Dortmund was already assured of winning Group D, while City needed a win to qualify for European football's second-tier club competition. But City didn't win a match all season to finish one point behind Ajax, which lost 4-1 on Tuesday at Real Madrid, the group runner-up.
Dortmund started the match without six regulars but still controlled the game with City displaying little fighting spirit.
