Pep’s team is off to a flying start in the premier league as well as the champions league with a 4-0 victory over Sevilla. Haaland as usual being the Spanish managers hero, City are first in Group G on goal difference and would look forward to extend their gap by winning against Dortmund. They stand 2nd in the league currently behind leaders Arsenal, the city players have an unusual advantage as their players have got rest for this game as the premier league fixtures were postponed this weekend.
Injured: Kyle Walker , Aymeric Laporte and John Stones.
The golden wall wont have enough support as they will be the visitors , they currently stand fifth in the Bundesliga table and are struggling to find rhythm. The German side are without their markee signing Sebastian Haller too who is diagnosed with testicular cancer. This weekend they suffered a thumping loss to RB Leipzig which was a 3-0 defeat, to top that ironically Dortmund’s fate lies in Erling Haaland’s hand but this time on the other side of the dressing room as he looks forward to haunt his former club.
Injuries : Hazard, Kobel, Mahmoud Dahoud and Mateu Morey.
Haaland would look forward to punishing Dortmund in search for Champions League Glory .Haaland is always a goal threat for the opposition and no one would be more familiar with that than Borussia Dortmund, Haaland had scored 62 goals in 67 matches for Dortmund. The Norwegian will look forward to meeting his former club in the group stages of the Champions league on Sunday. The Striker has scored 10 goals in the premier league already more than Dortmund in the Bundesliga[8 goals].
Head to Head between Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund
The Cityzens have a good record against the German side in the Champions league with four played and two won, one drawn. However Dortmund came out on the top once with a victory and would love to repeat it as they are geared up for the fixture. The last time these sides met was in 2021, Dortmund had put a proper shift in but couldn’t prevent City from winning as it seemed inevitable similarly in this fixture they are going as the underdogs.
