Europe – Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 6 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Manchester City will be hoping to get one over their visiting German visitors and advance to the semi-finals of this year’s Champions league.
Manchester City goes into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City yesterday in the English Premier League. Second-half goals from French left-back Benjamin Mendy and Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus ensured victory for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Adi Hutter’s Eintracht Frankfurt yesterday at the Westfalenstadion. An own goal from left-back Nico Schulz and a goal from Portuguese striker Andre Silva secured the win for Eintracht Frankfurt. Experienced centre-back Mats Hummels scored the consolation goal for Borussia Dortmund.
In two head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Borussia Dortmund have won one game and drawn one. The two clubs last faced each other way back in 2012, with Borussia Dortmund beating Manchester City 1-0. A second-half goal from German striker Julian Schieber, now at Augsburg, sealed the deal for Borussia Dortmund.
There are no known injury worries for Manchester City, but the visitors will do without the services of veteran left-back Marcel Schmelzer, French centre-back Dan-Axel Zagadou, Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel, young striker Youssoufa Moukoko and English forward Jadon Sancho, who are all nursing injuries.
