Manchester City Preview
Manchester City have had a very valuable run in their last eight meetings. They haven’t lost a single game since August, and they’ve played a handful of them. Their most notable matches were against Bournemouth (4-0), Barcelona in a friendly (3-3), Crystal Palace (4-2), Nottingham Forest (6-0) and Sevilla (0-4) in the first round of the Champions League.
From August 7 to the present, they have scored 27 goals in a row. Their top scorer at the moment is Erling Haaland, who has been responsible for 12 of those 27 goals. Fortunately, it’s very likely that he will be at the next match against the German team.
Probable starting eleven: Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Manuel Akanji, Sergio Gomez; Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne; Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden
Borussia Dortmund Preview
However, Borussia Dortmund are no slouches: they have won five of their last eight games and drawn one. In these matches, they have scored a total of 12 goals. Marco Reus, their all-time leading scorer in the Champions League, has scored 2 of those 12 goals.
They could count on this man in their starting 11. Additionally, Dortmund prevailed 3-0 with goals from Marco Reus, Raphael Guerreiro and Jude Bellingham against Copenhagen on the first matchday. They had impressive numbers, with 63% possession and 87% passing accuracy.
Possible starting eleven: Alexander Meyer; Raphael Guerreiro, Nico Schlotterbeck, Niklas Sule, Thomas Meunier; Salih Ozcan, Jude Bellingham; Julian Brandt, Marco Reus, Giovanni Reyna; Anthony Modeste.
Although these are both teams with great Champions League records, Manchester City have performed better against teams big and small in the last month, not to mention they have an impressive number of goals and their best striker available at the moment. As a result, everything indicates that they will be able to easily defeat the German team in this match.
Prediction: Manchester City win 3-1.
