9. Marco Reus Takes Advantage of a Giveaway at the Back

Date: 10/3/2012
Matchup: Dortmund @ Manchester City

Manchester City had plenty of problems domestically in England this season, all of which culminated in the recent sacking of manager Roberto Mancini. However, as we've seen in past years with teams like Fiorentina during the 2009-10 campaign, the Champions League can so often be an opportunity to right the wrongs of the domestic season. Unfortunately, Europe offered no recluse for City and this giveaway at the back really was a metaphor for their inconsistencies. Marco Reus pounced on the errant pass by Jack Rodwell, and not even the fingertips of Joe Hart could keep this guided effort out of the back of the net. An important goal on a night where Dortmund was finding it near impossible to beat the England international.
