Borussia Dortmund Vs Manchester City Match Preview And Prediction

Borussia Dortmund came from behind to beat VfB Stuttgart 2-1 on Saturday, thanks to goals from Jude Bellingham, Marco Reus and Ansgar Knauff. However, that was only Dortmund’s second win in their previous five Bundesliga games, with recent defeats coming against Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Borussia Dortmund remain fifth in the German top-flight, seven points behind fourth-place Frankfurt and a whopping 19 points shy of Bayern. If Dortmund are to get the better of Man City, Erling Haaland will need to break a rare three-game goalless streak. The 20-year-old sensation has bagged ten goals and two assists in seven Champions League appearances this season.

Manchester City suffered just their fourth Premier League defeat of the season last time out, going down 2-1 to ten-man Leeds United. Guardiola named a much-changed side for Saturday’s clash, but despite playing the entire second half with a one-man advantage, City were unable to prevent defeat.

Manchester City remain miles clear at the Premier League summit and will surely clinch the title in the coming weeks. Remarkably, Guardiola’s men have only conceded two goals in nine Champions League games this season. On top of that, they have scored 19 goals in reply, averaging 2.1 goals per game in the Champions League this term.
