Borussia Dortmund impressed at the Etihad last week and will take great heart from their discipline and shape off the ball, something they just can’t rectify domestically for some reason.

Their open nature in the Bundesliga has probably cost them a top four spot and those deficiencies were highlighted yet again against Stuttgart on Saturday, nevertheless the Black and Yellows did come away with a 3-2 win with a spirited second half showing.

Ultimately that weekend displayed the very best and worst of this side and being so inconsistent probably won’t cut it against the very best that are left in this competition. The bookmakers make Man City as short as 1/9 to qualify, that may have been a bit bigger if Dortmund had the famous Yellow wall in support, it can be one of the most daunting places to visit for opposition.

The hosts do have to come out and attack here at some point and they’re certainly better going forward than they are defensively. To have any chance of reaching the semi finals they have to score and I do think they will, especially with the clinical Erling Haaland available.

It’s a task to keep this Man City side out though, Pep Guardiola will be looking for a reaction from a shock 2-1 loss to Leeds at the weekend but will have known the significance of this game. I’m expecting a really fun watch and the even-money on Both Teams To Score and Over 2 Goals on the Bet365 Bet Builder looks a bet to suit that.

I was first interested in the betting industry by doing the odd coupon at 18 - when I’d see a team at odds I didn’t expect it sparked my curiosity as to why that was. I’d go and research everything around that club: form, team news, manager quotes, and try give my own price in an aim to out-do the bookies. I personally enjoy punting on the Football League and European competitions. I like to diversify what markets I bet on so sometimes it’s outrights, goals, player cards etc. The Football League angle comes from being an avid Bradford City fan which has its ups (reaching a League Cup final and beating Chelsea in the FA Cup) and its downs (The entirety of 2018). Hobbies of mine include playing football, cross country running, travelling and playing Football Manager.
