Some Manchester City fans on Twitter hailed the performance of Kevin De Bruyne following the 2-1 triumph over Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium.

The Cityzens took the lead after just 19 minutes on the clock as De Bruyne orchestrated the move from the centre of the park before converting from a Riyad Mahrez pass in the six-yard box.

Pep Guardiola’s side had several chances to double the advantage, especially through Phil Foden, but they could not capitalise. Marco Reus eventually bagged a vital away goal for the visitors in the 84th minute.

Dortmund seemed on course for a well-earned draw until Foden scored a late winner before stoppage time. De Bruyne produced a sublime delivery for Ilkay Gundogan at the far post, who put the ball on the plate for Foden to find the back of the net.

De Bruyne had an impressive captain’s performance with one goal, two key passes, two take-ons and was successful with 100 percent of his long-balls. A number of the club’s faithful were clearly delighted with his showing on the night.

The Cityzens faced a potentially tricky trip to Dortmund at 1-1, but the late goal from Foden has provided them with a slight advantage for the return leg.

De Bruyne has produced several stunning displays this season, and the Belgian appears determined to guide the club to a maiden Champions League crown.

He was out on the sidelines with a hamstring injury earlier this year, but since his comeback, he has instantly proved his value with top-notch performances.
