MCI vs DOR Dream11 Prediction:
Manchester City continue their hunt for a potential quadruple under Pep Guardiola as they host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-final first leg. The Citizens advanced to the final eight with a comfortable 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Round of 16 which allowed them to advance on a 4-0 aggregate scoreline over the two legs. Dortmund were left to vie hard for an aggregate win over Sevilla with a 5-4 scoreline after a 2-2 draw in the second leg.
City come into the game on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City in the Premier League as they are now 17 points away on top in the domestic league. Guardiola’s exploits with Barcelona and Bayern Munich is well known across the footballing world but the Spaniard is still eluded of that one Champions League title with Manchester City. Erling Haaland’s Borussia Dortmund will visit Manchester after an unexpected 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga making a possible top-four finish in the domestic league bleaker as the season goes by.

DEF: Benjamin Mendy, Mats Hummels, Joao Cancelo, John Stones
MID: Jude Bellingham, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne (C)
FW: Erling Haaland (VC), Marcos Reus, Raheem Sterling
Erling Haaland: Haaland is in the form of his life and has scored 21 goals and made 5 assists in just 22 games in the Bundesliga and is the obvious captaincy option in most of the Dortmund fixtures.
Raheem Sterling: Sterling will lead the City attack on Wednesday. He has been in regular goals as well but has been used as a provider by Guardiola. With 7 assists and 9 goals in 26 games, Sterling will be vital for the home side.
X-factors, differential picks
Kevin de Bruyne: Arguably Europe’s finest midfielder, the Belgian will be the midfield maestro for City. He has created 11 goals and scored 5 himself in the Premier League so far.
Mats Hummels: Despite being a centre-back, the German likes to go upfront and score some goals. His terrific covering at the back will be crucial for the visitors against an ever attacking City side.
MCI vs DOR Match Prediction Football Match
Manchester City are on fine form in the Premier League and expected to come strongly into the game against the German side. The Citizens have been scoring at ease and will be the better bet between the two sides on Wednesday. However, Dortmund can hope to get something out of the game especially keeping in mind the fact that the Citizens have faced early exits in all editions of the Champions League in the previous few seasons.
