Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund, UCL, 06.04.2021
Borussia Dortmund will slug it out with Manchester City in the last eight of the UEFA Champions League. The Germans are making their first appearance in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2017.
Manchester City on the other hand have always made it to the last eight, but they have not gone beyond this stage in Europe’s biggest club competition. Could this be their time to lift the Big Ears? Something has got to give when these two sides clash on Tuesday. Read on for betting prediction.
Manchester City are chasing an unprecedented quadruple in the history of the club and they are closer than ever before. They are almost the champions-elect in England and they semi-finals and Finals of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup respectively.
Pep Guardiola’s men remain unbeaten in Europe this season and they have made their home a fortress. City are unbeaten in the last twelve European home matches and this includes four straight wins in their last four matches at home in the knockout phase of the competition.
The Citizens are favourite to get past the Germans given the overall quality within their ranks. Manchester City more than ever before are looking like they can go all the way in Europe’s elite competition, but they have to be wary of the threat posed by the gangling Erling Haaland.
Borussia Dortmund endured a nervy finish to their round of 16 tie against Spanish side Sevilla to advance to their first quarter-final of the competition for the first time in four years. Having recorded a 3-2 away win at Sevilla, the Germans were thought to be a shoo-in for the Quater finals, but a late flurry from the Spanish caused a bit of scare for the former champions. However, they held on to cement their passage into the next round.
The Germans owe their continued participation in the competition to their Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland who has carried the team on his back with a torrent of goals this term. Currently, he is the top marksman in the competition with ten goals to his name already. Once again he will be the go-to man as Edin Terzic plots to send Manchester City packing.
That said, Borussia Dortmund have a horrible record against English teams. They have lost their last five games against English opposition and lost in four of their last five visits to England.
If they are to cling to the hope of reaching the semifinals into the second leg of this encounter, they will have to ensure a repeat of their performance in Seville against City at the Etihad.
