Dortmund vs Man City: 5 Key Stats

April 14, 2021

Here are some key pointers ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final, second leg match. Manchester City take a 2-1 advantage into the game.

On the 7 previous occasions Borussia Dortmund have lost the first leg of a Champions League knockout stage match, they have been eliminated 6 times. The exception was against Benfica in 2016-17 at the Last 16 stage (0-1 first leg, 4-0 second leg).

In major European competition, Man City have progressed from 13 of their 15 knockout stage ties when winning the first leg, falling against Juventus in the 1976-77 Cup and against Monaco in the 2016-17 Champions League.

In Champions League history, the side winning the first leg of a knockout stage tie 2-1 at home has been eliminated (15) more often than they have progressed (12).

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has only failed to score in 3 of his 15 appearances in the Champions League, and has found the net in all 4 of his appearances at Signal Iduna Park (7 goals in total).

A goal for Man City’s Sergio Aguero will make him the outright highest goalscorer for a Premier League club in Champions League history (currently 36, level with Didier Drogba). The Argentinian has scored more goals in the competition against German sides (11) than he has vs sides from any other nation.

Key takeouts: Erling Haaland to score, Man City to progress to the semi-finals where they’d face PSG
