Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund Match Preview and Team News
Manchester City is hoping Erling Haaland will be the final piece in their Champions League jigsaw, and the striker could come back to haunt old club Borussia Dortmund on Matchday Two. Despite hoovering up trophies since Pep Guardiola took charge, club football’s biggest prize continues to elude City. After losing the 2021 showpiece to Chelsea, more agony followed in last season’s semi-final as Real Madrid scored twice in stoppage-time to break their hearts. But that only strengthened Manchester City’s resolve to finally rule the continent, with Haaland a statement signing this summer as they landed Europe’s deadliest striker. The Norwegian has hit the ground running, with a double at Sevilla in the first group game taking his tally to 12 goals in just eight games. Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
Dortmund knows just how dangerous Haaland can be, having nurtured him for the last two campaigns, but their business model has always been to sell their stars and invest in the latest prodigious talent. That has kept them at Europe’s top table, although last season was a massive disappointment as Borussia finished third in their Champions League group and then crashed out of the Europa League to Rangers. Marco Rose was axed at the end of the season, with the club turning back to Edin Terzic, and Dortmund’s start to the season has been promising, with six wins from eight games. They crushed Copenhagen 3-0 on Matchday One, bringing up a full house of tips for our man Gabriel, but taking on Man City at the Etihad is a massive step up in class. Jude Bellingham has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Karim Adeyemi enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has a problem.
