  • Key Stat

    Key Stat: City are yet to beat Dortmund in the three historic meetings between the two sides.

  • Expert Verdict

    Expert Verdict: Judging the progress of the two clubs is very hard at this stage of the pre-season campaign and Guardiola has warned that it would be unfair to expect instant results from his City side. Tuchel's men are therefore favoured to have the edge in this International Champions Cup match, which could prove to be a classic with a lot of goals scored by either side.

Borussia DortmundBorussia Dortmund Team News, Updates and Facts

Borussia Dortmund finished well off the pace in the Bundesliga last year as Bayern Munich romped to the title, but Thomas Tuchel's men could well be stronger this season despite the loss of their captain and defensive leader, Mats Hummels, who has joined up with Bayern.

Mario Gotze has moved the other way and new arrivals include Ousmane Dembele, with Dortmund looking sharp in a 4-1 defeat of Manchester United earlier in the competition.

Borussia Dortmund likely XI: 

Weidenfeller, Schmelzer, Sokratis, Bender, Rode, Kagawa, Castro, Passlack, Ramos, Dembele, Aubameyang.

Manchester City Manchester City Team News, Updates and Facts

Pep Guardiola could claim the first silverware of his Manchester City reign in the International Champions Cup, although his team's last game against Manchester United was cancelled as a result of heavy rain making the Beijing pitch not fit for purpose.

Sergio Aguero and David Silva are included in the ICC squad, but Guardiola has also taken promising local lads Tosin Adarabioyo, James Horsfield, Cameron Humphreys and Brandon Barker to the tournament and they may be involved in this game too.

Manchester City likely XI: 

Caballero, Zabaleta, Denayer, Otamendi, Kolarov, Zuculini, Delph, Navas, Fernando, Silva, Aguero.

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Head-to-Head Stats

The last time Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City met in a competitive game was in the 2011-12 season of the Champions League, with the German side just about coming out on top in the two games. 

Manchester City picked up a point with a 1-1 draw in their home match, but in the return game in Germany they went down to a 1-0 loss as a result of a Julian Schieber goal.

Borussia Dortmund v Manchester City: Prediction

There does not look to be much to choose between these sides, with Dortmund potentially having a slight advantage as a result of having already played one game in the International Champions Cup. Beating United will have provided Tuchel's men with a major confidence boost and they should be flying high for this game, while City are very early in their preparations for the new Premier League season under their new manager Guardiola.

Borussia Dortmund v Manchester City: Betting Tips

Perhaps surprisingly, City have been made the narrow favourites for this game and they can be backed at 8/5 to win this International Champions Cup match in 90 minutes, while Dortmund are available at a slightly larger price of 9/5 to come out on top. Football fans expecting a draw in this match - which would result in a penalty shootout to decide which team gets a bonus point - can back that outcome at a tempting 12/5. Both teams to score is a very short price at 8/15, but with so much attacking talent on the pitch this bet looks almost certain to come off in this game.
