Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Latest Odds
Unbeaten in eight home matches in this competition, they are available at 15/4 (4.75) with bet365 to give themselves a chance of progression by pulling off an impressive victory.
However, Pep Guardiola’s men have won eight and lost none of their nine Champions League fixtures this campaign and are clear 8/13 (1.62) favourites to make it through to only their second ever semi-final by coming out on top here.
The last two European matches at this ground have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 10/3 (4.33) on this one also finishing up all square.

Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marcel Schmelzer Axel Witsel, Jadon Sancho and Youssoufa Moukoko are all absent through injury for the hosts.

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Preview
Despite their almost faultless performance up until this point in the campaign, the Citizens always carry an element of doubt in the knockout stages due to previous shock exits at the hands of unfancied opponents such as Lyon, Tottenham and Monaco.
They will surely therefore be feeling slightly anxious as they look to protect a narrow lead against an exciting attacking team spearheaded by the irrepressible Erling Haaland.
Indeed, the Germans haven’t failed to score in 39 matches in all competitions and average over two per game in their previous seven home games in the Champions League.
However, it is hard to see them consigning their opponents to another upset due to a porous defence that has kept just one clean sheet in seven fixtures – conceding 14 times in that period.
