Preview, Odds and Picks
|Borussia Dortmund +393|
At 2-1 in the first leg, Borussia Dortmund must win by zero or more than 2 goals to reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in 90 minutes. However, he will have to go back to April 2014 to find his last UCL knockout win against another team in one of Europe's top five leagues to earn a 2+ goal margin and / or a clean sheet.
That said, Dortmund are unbeaten in eight UCL home games (five wins, three draws), going 1-0 in 20 minutes in two of the last four wins in that streak. However, two consecutive draws form the tail of this set, in which the rival scored his first goal of the game through a penalty awarded between minutes 61 and 75.

Aiming for their first European trophy in more than half a century, Manchester City are in pole position to reach their second UCL semi-final in five years.
