Stats show likely outcome of Man City v Borussia Dortmund [Opinion]


Manchester City travel to face Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday’s Champions League clash and could win their group if they pick up all three points at the Signal Iduna Park.

Pep Guardiola’s men are favourites to come out on top due to their superior domestic and European form this season, but City have struggled away from home at times, so a result won’t come easy.

Where will Manchester City finish in the Premier League this season?





5th or lower

City are top of Group G with 10 points from four games but come into Tuesday’s meeting off the back of one win, one draw and one defeat from their last three games, so they’re more vulnerable than ever.

The Sky Blues have failed to win four of their last six away games in all competitions this season too, so Dortmund will be a stern test.

As for the German outfit, BVB are second in the group with seven points from a possible 12 and boast consecutive wins ahead of their clash with City. Dortmund are unbeaten at home in all competitions since August too, so they shouldn’t be underestimated.

City need a win to ensure they go through as Group winners while Dortmund still need to seal their place in the knockout round, so both sides will be pushing for all three points.

Guardiola’s men have won their last three meetings with Dortmund 2-1 and have only lost one of their previous five-head-to-heads, so they might have the edge.
