Mixed feelings toward the Dortmund crowd were caused by Erling Haaland’s departure and Sebastien Haller’s entrance, and these feelings are anticipated to be visible at the Etihad Stadium tonight during the Man City vs Dortmund live stream match in the UCL group stage.
In Group G of the Champions League on Wednesday night, the German powerhouse will face the English champion, putting two of the most successful teams in European football against one another while on the previous Wednesday, Man City opened their season with a 4-0 victory against Sevilla.
Kick off: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
3.00 PM (ET)
Although they had previously managed to reach the UCL final, Real Madrid shockingly eliminated Manchester City from the Knockout Stages in the quarterfinals of the previous season and there is no denying that the 2021–22 season was difficult for the German giants, but a strong summer transfer window has helped this season get off to a great start.
Man City vs Dortmund Team News:
Erling Haaland’s Premier League goal scoring prowess may have been questioned prior to his move to the Etihad Stadium; however, those doubts have since been dispelled. His propensity for Champions League heroics was already well-established, and the 22-year-old scored twice in the 4-0 victory over Sevilla to raise his European total to 25 goals in 20 UCL games.
Dortmund’s loss at the Red Bull Arena brought to an end a run of three straight victories and three straight clean sheets. Dortmund could use Champions League star Haaland to lead the line right now, but Giovanni Reyna’s impact was felt last week. After emerging on as an early alternate to replace the hurt Thorgan Hazard, the 19-year-old set up Raphael Guerreiro’s goals against Copenhagen and will wish to play a significant role as Dortmund prepares for the upcoming match.
Manchester City Team Tactics
Due to nagging injuries, Kyle Walker of Man City’s defense was forced to miss the team’s victory over Sevilla. Stones will be available for this match, but Kyle is still out and the absence of fellow center-back Aymeric Laporte should allow former Dortmund players Manuel Akanji and Sergio Gomez, who both worked at the Westfalenstadion, to face off against their old employers. And, a 4-3-3 formation is also expected from the Citizens.
Probable XI: Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Akanji, Gomez; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Grealish
Borussia Dortmund Team Tactics
Despite only playing for 23 minutes against Copenhagen due to a thigh injury, Dortmund forward Hazard has been included in the traveling team for this match and attackers Malen (lower leg) and Karim Adeyemi (toe) have not officially been knocked out of this match, but it is believed that their prospects of being eligible from the start are quite poor. As a result, Anthony Modeste should once again carry the offensive load. Again, a 4-2-3-1 formation may gain the preference from the Dortmund manager.
Probable XI: Meyer; Meunier, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro; Ozcan, Bellingham; Brandt, Reus, Reyna; Modeste
Players to watch
Erling Haaland (Man City)

Anthony Modeste (Borussia Dortmund)
Anthony Modeste relocated from Koln to Dortmund this summer. This season throughout all competitions, the French goal scorer has four goals in three games.

Modeste will be aiming to make an impression and give his new club the victory as he returns to his former abode.
