Man City faces Dortmund in must-win CL match


MADRID (AP) -Manchester City hosts Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday in a test between two teams eager to prove they can play with the best in Europe.

City ended a 44-year title drought in the English Premier League last season while Dortmund successfully defended its Bundesliga title, however, both domestic champions crashed out of Europe's top club competition in the group phase.

And while Dortmund edged Ajax 1-0 in their opener two weeks ago, City has very little room left for error in what is considered the tournament's toughest group after losing a 3-2 thriller at Real Madrid.

In the other Group C match on Wednesday, Jose Mourinho's Madrid visits Ajax.
