Man City vs Borussia Dortmund: Team news

City have a fully-fit squad available as they prepare to host Dortmund.

The quadruple-chasing Premier League leaders have no fresh fitness concerns following Saturday’s victory at Leicester.

Dortmund star Sancho will not face his former club due to a thigh problem, while Dan-Axel Zagadou and Axel Witsel are also out for the visitors.
Man City vs Borussia Dortmund: What’s been said

City boss Guardiola: “The only thing I can say is that, with his age, he [Haaland] is an exceptional striker. The numbers speak for themselves and he’s a fantastic player – that’s all.

“To score that number of goals at his age is not easy to find. When that happens it’s because he can score with the right, the left, the counter-attacks, in the box.

“He’s a fantastic striker, everyone knows it. A blind guy would realise he’s a good striker. It’s not necessary to be a manager to realise it.”

Dortmund manager Edin Terzic: “We need to be at the top of our game in both legs; on it from the first second to the last, and maybe for extra time too.

“To overcome Manchester City would be something special. Guardiola is undoubtedly one of the best coaches in the world.

“For almost 15 years, his teams have dominated football.”

Manchester City are looking to make a good start to their Champions League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund – but Erling Haaland is bound to take plenty of the focus at the Etihad tonight.

City host Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, aiming to improve their recent record at this stage having exited at the last eight for the past three seasons.

Pep Guardiola has a fully fit squad to pick from, with tonight a chance to keep the dream of a quadruple alive. Borussia Dortmund are missing Jadon Sancho, but City will have to be wary of striker Haaland.

Haaland is on City’s radar for a summer transfer, and the Blues will get a chance to see him up close tonight. They will hope, though, that he doesn’t continue his incredible Champions League scoring record ahead of next week’s second leg in Germany.

Opta stats

Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund met in the UEFA Champions League group stage in the 2012-13 season, the only two previous meetings between the sides: a 1-1 draw at the Etihad and a 1-0 Dortmund win at Signal Iduna Park.
Manchester City have won 10 of their last 11 UEFA Champions League matches against German opposition (D1) and have 12 wins against German teams in total – only Real Madrid (26), Barcelona (20) and Man Utd (13) have more victories against German sides.
Since losing their opening group stage game on MD1 (1-3 v Lazio), Borussia Dortmund have gone unbeaten in their last seven games in the UEFA Champions League (W5 D2) – they last had a longer streak in the competition between 2012 and 2013, going 11 games without defeat under Jürgen Klopp.
Manchester City have lost four of their five matches at the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League under Pep Guardiola, with City going out at this stage in each of the last three seasons.
This is Borussia Dortmund’s first UEFA Champions League quarter-final since 2016-17, when they lost 6-3 on aggregate to Monaco. Dortmund have won the first leg in just one of their previous six quarter-final ties (D2 L3), a 3-1 home win over Auxerre in 1996-97.
Including finals, this will be Pep Guardiola’s 60th game as a manager in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League – only Carlo Ancelotti has managed more than that (62), however the current Manchester City boss already has the most victories in the knockout stages (31) in the competition’s history.
Manchester City haven’t conceded a goal in any of their last seven games in the UEFA Champions League – only Arsenal in 2005-06 have ever had a longer run of consecutive clean sheets in the competition (10 in a row).
Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has scored in each of his last six UEFA Champions League appearances – if he finds the net in this game, he will become just the fifth player in the competition’s history to score in seven in a row (after Cristiano Ronaldo x2, Robert Lewandowski, Edinson Cavani and Ruud van Nistelrooy).
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been directly involved in 12 goals in his last 11 UEFA Champions League matches (3 goals, 9 assists) and has scored three goals and assisted three more in six starts in UEFA Champions League quarter-final matches.
This will be Erling Haaland’s fifth appearance in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League for Borussia Dortmund, while he’s scored six goals in his first four. The record for most goals scored by a player in their first five games in the knockout stages of the competition is six (by Robert Lewandowski), so Haaland would overtake him if he scores in this game.

Although struggling domestically, Al Hain-Cole expects the prolific visitors to pose plenty of problems for Guardiola’s side in the Champions League

Pep Guardiola’s men are desperate to match recent domestic dominance with European success, having only ever made it past the quarter-finals once – suffering elimination at this stage in each of the last three seasons.Manchester City will be hoping to dispel the ghosts of previous failures at the Champions League quarter-final stage when they take on Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

City are yet to make it past the last eight in Europe’s top competition under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola but will fancy their chances against an out-of-form Dortmund.

While City were easing to a 2-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday, the German side fell to a 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt. The loss means Dortmund have just one win in their last five games and are now seven points off the top four.

However, the Blues will be more than aware of the threat Dortmund possess with star striker Erling Haaland leading the line, even if Jadon Sancho will likely miss the game through injury.

Guardiola has no such fitness issues and should have a fully fit squad to choose from for the match.

See how our writers think City should line up below and use the interactive gadget to pick your own starting XI:

Stuart Brennan

Nothing short of the strongest team will do for this one, but that still leaves some serious selection dilemmas. Fernandinho does not deserve to be left out but Rodri offers a more solid option with away goals needing to be stopped at all cost.

Joao Cancelo can add the attacking edge which leaving out Fernandinho might blunt, while Ilkay Gundogan makes up the best midfield three, obviously with Kevin De Bruyne.

Raheem Sterling has not been great lately but is a potential match-winner and so gets the nod, and amid fierce competition, Gabriel Jesus’ bright showing at Leicester, and Phil Foden’s sparkiness for England get them the nod from me to make up a hard-working front three aimed at pressuring a nervy Dortmund defence.

Simon Bajkowski

City beat Borussia Monchengladbach by pressing hard and high, and they should be able to achieve similar success against Dortmund in this way.

Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden are the three best at pressing but I would (reluctantly) push Raheem Sterling in over Foden simply because he has a unique knack for finding space and causing problems.

Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri is City’s best midfield trio, especially given Fernandinho played at Leicester.

Aleks Zinchenko missed that game with tiredness and that should be enough to keep Joao Cancelo ahead of him at left-back. Kyle Walker has shown signs of his best form in recent weeks.

Aymeric Laporte looked decent at the weekend but John Stones deserves to come back in to partner Dias in the middle.

Daniel Murphy

Pep Guardiola has a tendency to over-think these big European games but he should resist the urge to tinker and play to his side’s known strengths against a reeling Dortmund.

Dan’s team

The Blues boss was able to rest several of his players who were away on international duty at the weekend so I’d be bringing them all back into the side now they’ve been well rested.

Therefore I’d start each of John Stones, Joao Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden to go as strong as possible. I’d also move Gabriel Jesus back into the central striking role with Sergio Aguero making way.
