Wednesday Seven Mid Week Jackpot Teams To Secure a Win

Manchester City failed to take their chances in the first leg, yet carry a slender 2-1 lead to the second leg against Borussia Dortmund. Without a doubt, Manchester City is the most consistent team across all top leagues this season, and they are once again heavy favourites to beat the Bundesliga side on Tuesday.

Meantime, Dortmund has been extremely poor across all competitions this season and there are serious problems in defense and most teams managed to score past them this season.

On the other hand, the Citizens have a next to perfect record in Champions League this season, having won 8 of the 9 games played so far, FC Porto the only team to snatch a point from them with a goalless draw.

Dortmund are unbeaten at home in the Champions League, though they failed to beat powerful teams like Lazio and Sevilla, both scored draws.

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Head-to-head

Last week’s fixture is only their 3rd meeting in Europe and the teams now share a win and draw. The previous was in the 2012/13 group stage, the teams settled for a 1-1 draw at Etihad while the Germans snatched a narrow 1-0 win at the Iduna Park.

Borussia Dortmund’s overall record against English Premier League teams in Europe is 11 wins, 5 draws, and 12 losses from 28 matches. At home, they won 6, drew 4 and lost 3 of the 13. Manchester City has a better overall record against German Bundesliga teams having won in 16 of the 26 match-ups, drew 3 and lost 7. Interestingly, 6 of those defeats came as an away team, while they won 6 and drew 1 from overall 13.

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Prediction

There is a gulf in quality between the teams and as mentioned at the start Manchester City are the most stable team across the globe at the moment and we can expect them to snatch another win here.

However, a more safe approach is to look for options from goal markets since there are players with brilliant scoring form on either side of the pitch. Erling Haaland is always a threat, while Manchester City has the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne playing in the form of their lives. Therefore, the over 2.5 goals full-time is the best bet for this Champions League fixture, but brave punters could back an anytime goal-scorer in Haaland.
