Man City’s Champions League will finally come to an end in Germany tonight, as Bet365 launch an exclusive free bets offer on the match and release the latest odds, including Arsenal v Olympiakos as the firm reports all the money has come in for the home win tonight.
Manchester City head to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening in their final group match in the Champions League and know that they need a victory to try and qualify for the Europa League this campaign.
The Citizens have simply not been good enough in the tournament this term and have failed to take all three points in all five of their encounters so far as they face a Dortmund side who have already qualified from the group.
Now, they sit one point behind Ajax in third place and if they want to stay in a European tournament this season – need to take something from Germany.
Roberto Mancini might put out a slightly weakened side though as he is sure to have one eye on the Manchester derby on Sunday afternoon – a game that is likely to have a big say in the Premier League title race as the Italian is definitely without David Silva, Yaya Toure, Aleksandar Kolarov and Gael Clichy, who all miss the tie through injury or suspension.
However, Mancini will know just what a strong side Dortmund are and if you give them chances, they can really punish you.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been one of the surprise packages in the Champions League this time out and are guaranteed a place in the knockout stages of the competition, as they join Real Madrid in the knockout stages.
They come into the game on the back of a seven match unbeaten run in Bundesliga, their most recent result a draw at Bayern Munich.
Dortmund are top of the group as well and know that they need to continue their momentum into the knockout stages.
The German champions have not lost in this tournament so far and Klopp will be looking for that to remain the case on Tuesday evening.
The fans inside Signal-Iduna-Park make a quite incredible atmosphere and it will be tough for City to come here and pick up the points. When they play at home, Dortmund fancy their chances against anyone and have 100% record on home soil in the Champions League.
Bet365 offer odds of 11/10 on the home win and at that price the home win simply has to be taken. It remains to be seen what emphasis Mancini will place on the Europa League, with a tight Premiership title race on the cards this game looks to be way down on the list of priorities at the Etihad.
It does however, make for a superb 90 minutes that are not to be missed as fans can take a good look at an exciting Dortmund side. Kick-off for this encounter between the German and English champions is 7.45PM.
