Top Champions League predictions for Dortmund vs. Manchester City
The model is leaning under 3.5 goals in Wednesday's matchup between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City. The Cityzens are one of the best defensive teams on the planet, as they've allowed a total of 29 goals in 49 matches across all competitions this season and only two in nine Champions League games. However, their offense has been stalling a bit of late, recording fewer than three goals in each of the last five outings, and their top scorers have not been producing. Ilkay Gundogan (team-high 16 goals) has been contained in back-to-back matches after scoring in five of his previous six and Raheem Sterling (13) has tallied once in his last 10 games and enters Wednesday on a four-game drought.
Gabriel Jesus (13) has scored just one goal in four contests while the first-leg tally by Foden (12) is the only one he's registered in his last 12 outings. Erling Haaland has been outstanding for Dortmund, scoring a total of 33 goals in 34 overall matches this season while leading the Champions League with 10 goals. However, the 20-year-old forward is mired in a six-game drought after posting five two-goal performances over his previous eight contests and Jadon Sancho has gone three straight Champions League matches without a goal, which is one of the reasons the model is leaning toward the under on Wednesday.
