Joe Hart Relieved to Survive Borussia Dortmund Onslaught


Joe Hart
Joe Hart admits Manchester City were lucky to escape with a point from their latest Champions League outing.
The England keeper was in top form to keep his side in the game as Borussia Dortmund piled forward.
He made several top class stops from Mario Gotze before finally being beaten by Marco Reus.
But the Blues grabbed a point in this 1-1 draw thanks to a dodgy looking penalty decision at the death.
Referee Pavel Kr├ílovec harshly ruled Neven Subotic used his arm to block Sergio Aguero's shot - allowing Mario Balotelli to score his 11th penalty out of 11. That despite an attempt to put him off by visiting keeper Roman Weidenfeller.  
Hart said: "We've got to be happy with a point. It could have been 10-10, their keeper was fantastic and both sides had a lot of chances.
"Can I recall a night when I was that busy? Not off the top of my head! Dortmund were different class tonight. I hope it wasn't a wasted effort, I think this shows what a tough group we're in."
He added: "But Mario's never going to miss the penalty. We pushed hard, we needed a point, we've come out intact and the group is still alive for us." 
City sit third in their group after Real Madrid thrashed Ajax in Amsterdam to take six points out of six. Dortmund occupy second spot with points, three clear of City.
