Reason for Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions
Manchester City will be excited by their weekend gains, having beaten Leicester City 2-0 for their fifth straight win and 26th victory in 27 matches. With just one loss in 34 games across all competitions, City remains in contention for four different competitions and seems to have wrapped up the Premier League after their Saturday win. They go to this Champions League game, having set four straight clean sheets and scored two or more goals in their last five matches. City will have a lot of fresh legs, too, for this game, having rested most top players against Leicester. City has been among the best performers in the Champions League this season and going here, they haven’t lost a game this season, winning seven of the eight played. 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.
Dortmund met City competitively in two matches in 2012 in the Champions League, and the Germans won 2-1 across the two games. They go to this match after a 2-1 home loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, which left their Champions League hopes in tatters. Their only win in the last five games was against Hertha Berlin in mid-March, and the most positive news out of the team has been Erling Haaland’s form. As Dortmund’s struggles continue, the striker has been linked with a number of clubs, among them City, and this will be a great platform for him to show what he can do. He’s already done well for Dortmund in the Champions League, scoring ten goals in the eight matches they’ve played. Haaland’s quality hasn’t been repaid well by the team’s defensive performances; the loss to Frankfurt was the fourth time in five matches that they’ve conceded two goals or more. Julian Brandt puts in confident performances and plays without error. In the beginning, he had offers from some bigger clubs, but a move to Borussia Dortmund proved to be a perfect choice. Sancho creates a lot of trouble for opponents on the right-wing. It’s 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 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. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
