Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund will clash heads with each other on Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium in the UEFA Champions League group stage match. The Sky Blues were victorious against Sevilla as they scored 4 goals while keeping a clean sheet against the Spanish outfit in their opening round. On the other hand, Dortmund earned a 3-0 victory against Copenhagen on match day 1 in Group G of the Champions League.

Manchester City Vs Borussia Dortmund: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola could set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make minimal changes for this European contest versus Dortmund. Hence, we can once again expect to see Manuel Akanji feature alongside Ruben Dias in the heart of the City’s defence. Phil Foden and Erling Haaland are guaranteed starters in the frontline but the left-wing position remains open for contention.

Edin Terzic might utilise the 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make one change for this game. Giovanni Reyna could get a chance to play from the start while Marius Wolf drops to the bench. Anthony Modeste is likely to shoulder the attacking burden up top as he fancies his chances of finding the back of the net.

Team News

Manchester City

The Mancunian giants will remain without the services of Kyle Walker, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte due to injury setbacks. So Guardiola will have to bring in former Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji to pair up with Ruben Dias while Nathan Ake provides cover from the bench. The rest of the team remains fit for selection, so Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez are up for contention in the left-wing spot with Jack Grealish.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Akanji, Gomez; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Grealish

Borussia Dortmund

The German outfit will be without long-term absentees Gregor Kobel, Sebastien Haller, Mahmoud Dahoud, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Mateu Morey as all four of them find themselves in the treatment room. Furthermore, Thorgan Hazard picked up a thigh injury in their opening round of the Champions League but he hasn’t been ruled out yet, so he could be available for the upcoming away encounter. Donyell Malen and Karim Adeyemi have also not been ruled out as of yet but attacker Anthony Modesty would have to step up, with both of them not being fully fit.

Borussia Dortmund Predicted XI

Meyer; Meunier, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro; Ozcan, Bellingham; Brandt, Reus, Reyna; Modeste
