Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

  • Dortmund have lost their last four Champions League trips to England
  • Haaland has scored nine in his last four City games
  • City have averaged just shy of four goals per game across their last eight home meetings with Bundesliga sides
  • Five of City’s last six matches have seen over 3.5 goals scored

Difficult week for Dortmund

After losing 3-0 to former boss Marco Rose’s RB Leipzig at the weekend, there’s another tough reunion on the cards for Borussia Dortmund. They head to the Etihad – the new home of their former star number nine Erling Haaland.

The visitors also have a derby clash with Schalke to look forward to this coming weekend, so it’s a highly-charged week for them. Following on from a 3-0 drubbing at a high-scoring City side is certainly something to feat, especially as Dortmund have lost their last four visits to English sides in the Champions League.

Inspired Haaland to cause problems

Haaland has now scored 25 goals in 20 Champions League appearances, the most by any player in their first 20 games in the competition. That incredible record came in part thanks to the fact he found the net 15 in 13 games with Borussia Dortmund in Europe’s top-tier competition.

Haaland is out to become just the second player – after Ciro Immobile – to both score a Champions League goal for and against Dortmund. With nine goals in his last four games for City, he’s likely to grab more than one.

Citizens to cruise to win

The hosts haven’t needed Haaland to do damage against German sides in the past. City have won their last eight home games against German sides in the Champions League by an impressive aggregate score of 30-9 – that’s just shy of four goals per game.

They hit Sevilla for four a week ago, meaning they’ve now scored 22 goals across their last six games, conceding six times in that run. The Citizens have seen over 3.5 goals land in five of those six, while last season’s group stage saw Dortmund lost 4-0 and 3-1 to Ajax before a 3-1 defeat at Sporting. Back another high-scoring clash, with over 3.5 goals the best option.

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 20 Champions League home games, winning 18 and drawing two. Meanwhile, Dortmund have lost 10 of their 17 away trips in this competition, so City should rack up a big victory. Back them to follow up their high-scoring form with a 4-1 victory.
