Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund Preview:
In England, Manchester City will take Borussia from the German city of Dortmund in the second round of the group stage of the Champions League. Mancini’s team will look to make longer their 17-match unbeaten home run.
Ajax and Real Madrid are playing along with Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in the Group D. Experts considers that English and Spanish teams are true favourites of this group. However, many people believe that the German club is able to intervene in the fight for a second place in this group.
After the first round, Real Madrid, who won the last match between Manchester City with the score 3-2, takes the first place in the group. Borussia held home match against Dutch club Ajax, and after a difficult victory over the Dutch club, Jurgen Klopp’s team took three points and stands on the second place in the group.
Both teams are not in the best game form. Both can’t come back to their championships run that was last season. Manchester City has to get three points in order not to stay out of the race for the first place. Borussia should not lose its second place in the group.
The Italian manager is expected to choose a similar start squad to that, which won against Fulham this weekend (2-1), with Matija Nastasic and Gael Clichy instead of Joleon Lescott and Aleksandar Kolarov in the back.
Maicon with ankle/foot, Jack Rodwell with groin problems and Micah Richards with ankle/foot are still injured. But Roberto Mancini has a lot of players to choose from. Edin Dzeko perhaps will remain on the bench, while Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero will back in the start squad.
Jurgen Klopp has no important absences. He will put a full strength side at the Etihad Stadium. Attacker Robert Lewandowski was rested for Dortmund’s 5-0 win against Borussia Monchengladbach this weekend.
Manchester City line-up: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Barry, Silva, Yaya Toure, Aguero, Tevez.
