Unbeaten Record at Risk
Manchester City hasn’t had any trouble fulfilling expectations in the Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League, but if there’s a team capable of beating them, that’s Borussia Dortmund – especially at Signal Iduna Park.
The Citizens will try to seal their ticket to the next round, for which a draw would be enough. Curiously enough, the Black and Yellows could also seal their ticket even if they lose. If that’s the case, though, it would depend on the result of Sevilla vs Copenhagen.
As expected, the visitors dominate the soccer lines, but the German side has been considerably better when playing at home.

Borussia Dortmund: Confidence Back
Borussia Dortmund drew 1-1 to Sevilla in the last fixture of the UCL, Later, they lost 2-0 to FC Union Berlin in the Bundesliga. Needless to say, team spirit was rock bottom, but last week they regained a lot of confidence thanks to two resounding victories.
First, they defeated Hannover 96 in the second round of the DFB Pokal. They won 2-0 despite ending up playing with 10 players as Karim Adeyemi was sent off in the second half. Bright Arrey-Mbi and Jude Bellingham were the scorers.
Most recently, they crushed Stuttgart 5-0. Good thing our betting online advice was to go with the over. Jude Bellingham led the way with a brace while Niklas Sule, Giovanni Reyna and Youssoufa Moukoko contributed one goal each.
Bellingham is the main reason for you to include the Black and Yellows in your ticket. He’s the team’s top scorer with six goals, four in the UCL. The 19-year-old midfielder is set to sign for a powerhouse next season. He’s also expected to shine with England in the 2022 World Cup.
Dortmund’s price is another good reason to include them in your ticket. They’re offering a +420 price to win straight up, meaning a $100 wager could turn into a $520 payout. Considering they’ve lost only one of eight home games in all competitions, that’s very tempting.
Manchester City: On Fire
We all knew Erling Haaland was going to be successful at Manchester City, but the Norwegian has exceeded all expectations in two months. He’s the English Premier League top scorer with 15 goals. He alone has scored more goals than nine teams in total. Last Saturday, he scored a brace to lead the Citizens to a 3-1 victory over Brighton.
Regarding the UCL, he has scored five goals, enough to share the tournament’s top scorer spot with Mohamed Salah and Robert Lewandowski. Summing up, he’s the main reason for the Citizens to be in control of the Las Vegas odds at -165.
As mentioned before, the Citizens only need one more point to seal their ticket to the Round of 16. They’re one of the eight unbeaten teams. As if that wasn’t enough, they’ve scored 11 goals and allowed only one.
They’ve played eight games on the road, and they own a 3-3-2 record. Both losses were against Liverpool. They failed to score twice and finished with a clean sheet four times.
