Man City v Dortmund Prediction - Preview

Manchester City

Manchester City are keeping their Quadruple hopes alive; and with the EPL title almost in the bag, the Champions League title are high on their radar. They kept Monchengladbach scoreless in the Round of 16 (4-0). Ederson Moraes came up with another clean sheet after Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan opened the scorelines early with goals in the 12th and 18th minute, repectively. Manager Pep Guardiola notes that, even if Dortmund is struggling in the Bundesliga, “it is too early to write them off in a knockout competition.” With barely an injured player, the Citizens are now left to live up to the challenge.

  • Manchester City have won 10 of their last 11 CL matches against German clubs.
  • They have lost 4 of their 5 matches of the CL quarterfinal stage under Guardiola.

Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund is looking to repeat their Champions League victory over Man City in 2013 (2-1 on aggregate). Prior to this round, the Schwarzgelben survived a tight matchup with Sevilla, which they won 5-4 on aggregate. Superstar striker Erling Haaland once again showed flashes of his talent by producing a goal in the 35th minute, and a converted penalty shot in the 54th minute. Youssef En-Nesyri equalised with goals in the 68th and 96 minutes, but that wasn’t enough to keep the Spanish club from elimination. Manager Edin Terzic now has the task of beating what he says is the “strongest team in the world,” and hopes that they can keep possession as far away from City as possible. 

  • Since losing their CL opening group stage match, Dortmund had been unbeaten in their last 7 games.
  • This is their first quarterfinal since 2017, wherein they lost 6-3 on aggregate to Monaco.

Man City v Dortmund Prediction - Final Thoughts

With no injuries and no losses since the Manchester Derby, Man City is set to do damage in this leg. Dortmund will bank on Erling Haaland deadly striking ability, but the absence of key players like Jadon Sancho will affect them immensely.
