Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City face off on Tuesday in a Group G UEFA Champions League showdown at Signal Iduna Park.
When these two teams faced off on September 14th it was Manchester City that secured the 2-1 victory. Dortmund opened up the scoring in the 56th minute, and it looked like they might pick up the three points. John Stones scored in the 80th minute and Erling Haaland scored in the 84th minute on the way to the victory. Manchester City had 66 percent of the possession and three shots on target. Dortmund had 34 percent of the possession and two shots on target.
Manchester City comes into this game sitting 1st place in the group having picked up 10 points. Manchester City’s last UEFA Champions League game came against Copenhagen, and that game ended in a 0-0 draw. Sergio Gomez picked up a red card in that game and won’t be able to go in this game. On Saturday, Manchester City scored against Brighton, and they secured a 3-1 victory. Erling Haaland scored in the 22nd and 43rd minutes. Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips are both still hurt heading into this game, and they won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Borussia Dortmund, who sits in second place in the group having picked up seven points. Borussia Dortmund’s last game in the Champions League game came against Sevilla and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. On Saturday, they faced off against VfB Stuttgart, and they were able to secure a 5-0 victory. Jude Bellingham scored in the 2nd and 53rd minute. Thomas Meunier, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Mateu Morey, Mahmoud Dahoud, and Sebastien Haller have all been ruled out for this game, and those are some big losses for this team.
Manchester City secured the 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the last game, and they are going to find success again in this game. I don’t see Dortmund finding a lot of offensive success in this game, and that is going to be the difference as Manchester City gets the job done. Back Manchester City on the money line.
