Why bet on Dortmund versus Manchester City?
The top goal scorer at the 2021 UEFA Champions League plays for Dortmund. Erling Haaland has kicked in 10 goals in 6 games. That’s more than Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe. Haaland has been so effective in UCL matches that Dortmund had no trouble versus Sevilla in the last round. Haaland can score on any team. So if Man City doesn’t recognize where he is on the pitch at all times, he could lead the Bundesliga squad to an upset win.

Manchester City Vs Dortmund Final Betting Analysis
Dortmund’s Bundesliga form leaves a lot to be desired. But a quick look at how they’ve played in UCL matches and it’s obvious they step it up.
One of the possible reasons? Dortmund’s Bundesliga rivals know how to defend against Erling Haaland. Teams don’t realize how good the Norwegian striker is until they face him. Champions League teams approach matches believing they can use their same style of play and contain Haaland.
So far, that hasn’t worked for any team. The Sky Blues are the best club team in the world now that Bayern will be without Robert Lewandowski for the foreseeable future.
They shouldn’t lose this match. But giving Haaland and Dortmund a goal and a half isn’t wise. Dortmund can keep this to a one goal loss. On the handicap, the underdogs are the play.
