Terzic unhappy with Manchester City’s decisive penalty

Manchester City were finally able to reach the Champions League’s semi-finals by beating Dortmund 2-1 last night.

Jude Bellingham scored the match’s opener while Riad Mahrez’s penalty canceled the result that could lift Borussia Dortmund to the semi-finals.

Emre Can was whistled for a handball in the box 10 minutes into the second half as he headed the ball off his outstretched arm.

"To be fair, you have to congratulate Man City," Terzic told

. "They played brilliantly and deservedly go one round further.

"After three of four halves, however, we were through – then it's annoying that we end up conceding two goals like this. At the referee training it is clearly stated that heading into one's arm is not punishable.

"Let me put it this way: We weren't very lucky with decisions in the two games. We had a big dream, it is now unfortunately over."

In the reverse fixture, the referee also ruled out a goal by Jude Bellingham, where the 17-year-old stole the ball from Ederson and rolled it into an empty net.

The referee blew in his whistle before the goal passed the net, meaning the incident can’t be reviewed by VAR. However, replays showed that Bellingham had robbed the ball in mid-air from Ederson without fouling the Brazilian.
