Manchester City are aiming to reach their Champions League semi-finals for the first time in five years as they look to wrap up their draw against Borussia Dortmund.
A 2-1 first leg win leaves City in the driver’s seat, but the tie is still far from over. Dortmund are, at national level, on the verge of missing out next season’s competition, giving away their best chance this season to stay at the top in Europe. Their goal on the outside will be vital.
City will claim the Premier League title in the coming weeks, but this remains the competition they all want to win.
Date, time and place
Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City are scheduled to kick off at 8 p.m. BST on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
The match will take place behind closed doors at the Westfalenstadion.
How to watch

Jadon Sancho is back in training for Dortmund but there will be no reunion with his former club as he still lacks finesse.
Marcos Reus and Mats Hummels suffered injuries this weekend but are expected to be in good shape.
Manchester City rested a number of players this weekend and duly lost to 10-man Leeds.
It was a risk Pep Guardiola was willing to take with the return of Ruben Dias, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne.
Prediction: Dortmund 1-2 Man City
Manchester City have more than enough to finish the job in Germany, even with the threat of Erling Haaland & Co. Pep Guardiola’s rested players will be fighting for it, especially after the weekend’s loss to Leeds.
