I won the ball fairly – Bellingham shocked by ref’s decision

Jude Bellingham believes that luck was not on his side when his goal was controversially ruled out in Borussia Dortmund's 2:1 defeat to Manchester City in the first leg of the UCL quarterfinal clash between the two sides at the Etihad. The England midfielder impressed for his German side throughout the game but was unlucky in an incident that saw his equalizer for the Germans to make 1:1 chalked off.

Home sides start on a high on day 1 of 2020/21 UCL quarterfinals

Therefore, the Los Blancos will be wary of the threat the Reds po...
