Arsenal continue to hold the Champions League record for the longest streak without conceding a goal, after Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.
City overcame the tight match 2-1 thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden, while Dortmund’s goal was scored by patron Marco Reus.
After Reus’s goal, he ended City’s 788-minute streak without conceding in the competition (seven goals in a row before Tuesday’s tie).
He is the first player to score a Champions League goal against City since Luis Díaz with Porto in October.
And according to sports analytics company OptaJoe, it means that Arsenal’s record of going 995 minutes without conceding that was set in the 2005/06 season remains intact.
During the campaign, Arsenal reached the final but lost 2-1 to Barcelona after playing much of the game with 10 men.
