Borussia Dortmund are all set to welcome Manchester City to their backyard on Wednesday in a bid to claim their stake in the Champions League semifinals. Manchester City lead the tie by a goal which was scored in the 84th minute by Phil Foden. However, both sides have a chance to make their place in the round of four with a victory.
Despite the lead, Borussia Dortmund have an advantage over their opposition. The German outfit has already an away goal advantage and in case of a result like 1-0, BVB are set to advance to the next round. Also, the return of Jadon Sancho will work as a welcome boost for BVB.
Manchester City kept Erling Haaland quiet at Etihad but they will have to work harder if they are to keep him again at the bay. Cityzens have always bottled the game in the crucial European games. We have seen City losing the game to Tottenham Hotspur and Monaco in the yesteryears despite having an advantage. Can they change the fortunes in 2021?
