This Wednesday, September 14, the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola and Erling Haaland will receive the visit of Borussia Dortmund led by Edin Terzic at the Etihad Stadium for date 2 of Group G of the Champions League. In addition, the Norwegian Haaland will visit his former teammates for the first time in the citizen shirt.
Manchester City has started on the right foot on their journey in the Premier League and the Champions League. Their last home match was two weekends ago, a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. For the Champions League, they beat Sevilla 4-0 last week as visitors, with two goals from Norwegian Haaland, who has already managed to join the team.
For their part, Dortmund misses the Scandinavian striker. In the current Bundesliga, they have taken 12 points out of 18 possible and have scored only eight goals. Last weekend, they fell 3-0 away to R.B. Leipzig, in a match to be forgotten. Meanwhile, for champions, they beat Copenhagen 3-0 last week at home at Signal Iduna Park. They will look to scratch some points against City.
Over time, these two teams have met on only five occasions (one match of them was friendly). The last crossing was for the Champions League 2020/2021 and City won by 2 to 1 both crosses, corresponding to the quarterfinals.
