Champions League Group D (otherwise referred to as the Group of Death) returns on Wednesday and while the champions of Holland take on the champions of Spain over in Amsterdam, the respective league title holders of England and Germany square up to each other in Manchester.
The best odds for Manchester City can be found at Pinnacle at 11/12. Sky Bet go 11/4 the draw, while Totesport offer 7/2 on a Dortmund Victory.
Both sides successes last season were built on strong defensive bases and both teams had exemplary goals against tallies. However, the two are struggling to replicate this so far this season and have looked decidedly leaky, with Manchester City yet to keep a clean sheet.
With this in mind, we suggest goals are the way to go in this game, and lots of them. "Attack is the best form of defence" may well be the mindset that both teams employ and we want to take advantage of that. Over 2.5 looks extremely likely and is 5/7 with 188Bet and we'll even go for a little interest in over 3.5 at 7/4 with Ladbrokes.
Although City have home advantage and have a stronger squad, Dortmund are no pushovers and have enough firepower on their day to outplay City and grab a victory. in our opinion this is a fairly even match up and with not much between the two, we would be reluctant to go for a direct result. City do not carry much appeal at odds on and while Dortmund are tempting at 7/2, we are not quite confident enough to advise backing this. Instead, following on from our insistence on goals, we recommend having a little dabble on a high scoring draw. 2-2 is 18/1 with Coral.
