Manchester City Vs Borussia Dortmund Final Betting Analysis
If you believe Manchester City wins this match, it’s most likely because you believe Pep comes up with a strategy that favors the English Premier League squad. The strategy could involve starting Raheem Sterling instead of Phil Foden or Riyad Morez.
But if you’re in the Dortmund camp, you’re thinking one thing. The Bundesliga team almost forced a draw versus Man City and Erling Haaland didn’t score a goal.
Up until the Sky Blues blanked Haaland, he had scored 10 goals in eight UCL matches. Haaland had almost single-handedly dominated Dortmund’s rivals. Pep’s strategy of marking Haaland worked.
But it barely worked. If not for Phil Foden’s last minute goal, Dortmund would have left Etihad with a draw. A draw on the road in a two-leg aggregate is like getting the win.
Don’t expect the Sky Blues to blank Haaland again. Dortmund didn’t leave the pitch at Etihad with their heads held low. They got a road goal in the quarterfinals, which is like discovering gold.
Haaland figures to get at least one goal in this game. If Pep doesn’t have the right strategy, Erling could score two. Dortmund is the play.
