Why is Manchester City a safe bet to win?

The Sky Blues have gelled. It took some time for former Dortmund player Erling Haaland and the rest of City’s new players to play together at a high level. But since a 3-3 draw versus Barcelona, the Sky Blues have played great soccer.

Even the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa wasn’t bad. The Citizens headed into that match after drubbing Nottingham Forest 6-0. Man City followed up the draw with a 4-0 beating over Sevilla in their first Champions League match.

As far as Haaland is concerned, he’s playing lights out. The Norwegian superstar has scored 10 goals and has an assist in 6 matches. Haaland will be ultra-inspired on Wednesday. He spent all of his career with Dortmund until this season. So Erling will want to play his best against his former team.

Possible Line-Up

  • Ederson
  • Cancelo
  • Dias
  • Akanji
  • Gomez
  • Silva
  • Rodri
  • De Bruyne
  • Foden
  • Haaland
  • Grealish

Manchester City’s Last 5

  • Win – 0-4 vs. Sevilla
  • Draw – 1-1 vs. Aston Villa
  • Win – 6-0 vs. Nottingham Forest
  • Win – 4-2 vs. Crystal Palace
  • Draw – 3-3 vs. Barcelona

Why is Borussia Dortmund a safe bet to win?

Dortmund struggled in their last, an 0-4 loss to RB Leipzig. But losing to Leipzig makes sense. RBL is a rival and it’s tough to beat a rival.

Not only that, but the match happened on Leipzig’s pitch and Dortmund had won 3 straight: 1-0 versus Hertha Berlin, 1-0 versus TSG Hoffenheim, and 3-0 against Copenhagen in Dortmund’s first Champions League match.

Dortmund lost Haaland. But the midfield is solid and defender Mats Hummels is one of the best in the world. Also, the road underdog should know how to defend Haaland having played with Erling for so long.

Possible Line-Up

  • Meyer
  • Meunier
  • Sule
  • Schlotterbeck
  • Guerreiro
  • Ozcan
  • Bellingham
  • Brandt
  • Reus
  • Reyna
  • Modeste

Borussia Dortmund’s Last 5

  • Loss – 3-0 vs. RB Leipzig
  • Win – 3-0 vs. FC Copenhagen
  • Win – 1-0 vs. TSG Hoffenheim
  • Win – 0-1 vs. Hertha Berlin
  • L – 2-3 vs. Werder Breme

Manchester City vs. Borussia Dortmund Betting Prediction

The Sky Blues remain the favorite to win the Champions League. Although City has lost focus at times, Manchester is solid in every phase of the game. In addition, Haaland and his teammates are playing great together.

But although the Citizens should be the chalk in this, Dortmund is no slouch. The Bundesliga squad should know Haaland’s tendencies, which gives Dortmund a slight advantage on the defensive side.

Also, the handicap line is out of whack. City is the better team but the Sky Blues shouldn’t offer Dortmund 2 goals at over even money. Hummels, Thomas Muenier, and Dortmund’s midfield, especially Jude Bellingham and Marco Reus, should contain Haaland and the Sky Blues’ attack. The Citizens are an underlay on the handicap. Dortmund may not win, but they shouldn’t lose by more than a goal.
