Erling Braut Haaland trains with Borussia Dortmund ahead of Champions League clash with Manchester City – in pictures

Bundesliga outfit looking to overturn 2-1 deficit in quarter-final second leg

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had stated that Erling Braut Haaland's talents are so obvious that even a blind man can see them.

Borussia Dortmund will need every bit of his abilities when they look to overturn a 2-1 deficit in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against City on Wednesday.

Reaching the semi-finals would be a huge achievement for Dortmund, who are not on course to qualify for next season’s Champions League as they are currently outside of the Bundesliga’s top four. That will make it very hard to keep star striker Haaland in the face of interest from Europe’s biggest clubs.

City, who are one of the sides keen to sign the 20-year-old, were able to keep the star largely quiet in the first leg. However, Haaland setting up Marco Reus for a goal in Manchester means City will have to fight to secure progress.

The Norway international does not have a goal for club or country in his last six outings, but has scored against every club he's faced in the Champions League. And City are only halfway to avoid adding themselves to that statistic.

With so much stakes, pressure would be on Haaland but he seemed in jovial mood during training on Tuesday. Images from the session can be seen in the picture gallery above.
