Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction and Betting Tips
Manchester City to continue their surge
After another win at Leicester on Saturday that almost surely wrapped the Premier League for the Citizens, Pep Guardiola has to prepare his team for this quarter-final clash against Dortmund having in mind the English side were knocked out of this competition at the same round in the past three seasons.
Guardiola rested most of his top players for this match after a long and exhausting international break and it paid off as the Spaniard now has a rested full squad for this crucial UCL tie and added another three points for their Premier League points tally at the top of the table.
With five straight wins and scoring two or more goals in all of them, City who are still in contention for a home treble trophies, sight the UEFA Champions League title as their main target for this season, and with the kind of form they are in, the Citizens are definitely capable of getting the job done.
Dortmund in search of a surprise
Dortmund may have to win the UCL to guarantee participation next season. The BVB lost to Frankfurt at home on Saturday in the Bundesliga and they are now seven points away from a CL spot. With seven matches still to play in the German season, Dortmund can still make it to fourth place but with their current form that seems hard to get.
Winning just one match in their last five outings is not a good record as Die Borussen travel to Manchester. The positive side of it is that the Germans eliminated City back in 2012 in the knockout stage and with Erling Haaland in good form, the German side is looking for the Norwegian to inspire a similar outcome for this tie as well.
Erling Haaland has scored 10 goals in eight Champions League matches this season. The Dortmund defense though hasn’t been on the same level as they have conceded two or more goals in their last four of five matches.
- Manchester City have scored two or more goals in their last nine matches in all competitions
- Manchester City have not lost in the Champions League this season
- Dortmund have no clean sheets in their last four Champions League matches
- Dortmund have one defeat in away games in the UCL this season
Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
City are clear favorites to win this match and the tie. Dortmund don’t seem to pose a big threat for Guardiola’s team with the form they are in. The Citizens have been scoring two or more goals in recent matches while Dortmund have been conceding two or more goals.
We think Die Borussen will strengthen their defense to avoid a big loss to take back to Dortmund but City are in great scoring form and it will be hard to stop them.
We will back under 3.5 goals in this match since City have been winning by 2-0 in their last three matches and Dortmund will play to get the least damages possible.
