Reason for Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Predictions
Borussia Dortmund warmed up for their return leg Champions League clash at home to Manchester City with a 3-2 win over Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Saturday. They will be hoping for a more comfortable win on Wednesday as they look to overturn a 2-1 loss in the first leg in England. After conceding two in each of the last four matches, that will call for better defensive performance, though they have scored in 39 straight games ahead of this. The team has managed one clean sheet in the previous seven matches, conceding eight in the last five but scoring nine. Dortmund’s key forward Erling Haaland has not scored in the previous three games, but he has two assists in the last two. They head here with a good home run, having lost just once in the previous nine but winning five and keeping three clean sheets. Sancho creates a lot of trouble for opponents on the right-wing. It is hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and many teams are interested in signing the English international.
Manchester City will need just a draw to advance, but in Dortmund’s form at home, the Premier League giants will need a better performance than in the 2-1 loss to Leeds United on Saturday. City dominated the game but failed to break a Leeds side forced to play the entire second half a man down. In the end, they have conceded three goals in two matches, and here they meet a good attacking Dortmund side needing just a 1-0 win. That loss was City’s second in 36 games, and they have only four clean sheets in the last ten matches. One man they will really bank on here is Kevin De Bruyne, who has been the best performer on the team in recent times. He is the most consistent scorer with three goals in the last five matches. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Manchester City is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. Both teams have significant attacking potential, and we hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
