Man City v Borussia Dortmund tips – back City to win high-scoring clash

Manchester City have been here before. Pep Guardiola was hired to win lots of silverware with the English club although those trophies have all been of the domestic variety, with the Citizens regularly falling short in the Champions League and the plain fact is that this club have never been beyond the quarter final stage of the competition under the Spaniard.

Perhaps this season will be different and City are trading at football betting odds of 2/1 to win the European Cup which means they are the market leader to become champions of the continent, although some punters will be wary of wading in considering that the winner of this match will play PSG or Bayern Munich in the semi-final.

City Massive Favourites to Beat Borussia Dortmund

Manchester City have incredibly won twenty-five of their last twenty-six matches in all competitions, with the north-west side having previously beaten Borussia Monchengladbach in the last sixteen, with Guardiola’s side landing a 2-0 victory in both the home or away clashes against this team.

Now they’ll face another German Bundesliga side in the form of Borussia Dortmund and while they will be dangerous opponents, if you compare the first leg match odds then you will find that City are no bigger than 4/9 to claim a home win against a team who currently sit fifth in their domestic standings.

Guardiola has arguably his strongest squad since taking charge at the Etihad Stadium, with Ruben Dias adding steel to the defence, while Ilkay Gundogan, Joao Cancelo and Phil Foden are among those players who have enjoyed their best ever season for the Citizens, with many people looking to find the best betting odds about Man City.

Can Haaland Fire Dortmund to Glory?

Borussia Dortmund will certainly have nothing to lose from this clash and will have noticed the way that Manchester United won the recent derby, while the German side have a ridiculously dangerous weapon in the form of Erling Braut Haaland, with the young Norwegian illustrating that he is now among the world’s best players.

Haaland’s stats are incredible and Dortmund are available at 6/1 with some Champions League betting sites to win this first leg clash at the Etihad, with the Bundesliga outfit claiming a 3-2 victory away to Sevilla before a 2-2 draw at the Westfalenstadion, with Haaland scoring four of his team’s five goals.

Edin Terzić is the interim coach of Dortmund and he will surely not compromise on his team’s attacking strategy, with the team having recently ran into a 2-0 lead away to Bayern Munich although those familiar frailties at the back meant that their opponents were able to come storming back with four goals on the board.

What Are the Best Bets for Man City v Dortmund?

It’s never too sensible to lump on strong odds-on betting favourites to win a Champions League football clash, even if Manchester City have been in sensational form. However, we like the idea of the Citizens winning this European Cup first leg clash along with both sides finding the net. We should be confident that this one can be high-scoring.

The plain fact is that while the home side won’t want to concede any away goals, they won’t mind too much providing that they outscore the opposition and the 15/8 about Man City winning and both teams scoring looks to make plenty of appeal for punters who want to get with the home side in a way.

If you compare the Champions League football betting odds, then you are currently able to get 3/4 about both teams finding the net, with Haaland unable to stay quiet for ninety minutes despite that stubborn Manchester City defence, while a 3-1 correct score in favour of the Premier League champions-elect is trading at 10/1 which looks worth a wager.
