Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund: Storylines
Manchester City sealed a quarter-final spot after defeating Borussia Monchengladbach in both games in the Round of 16. The Citizens reached this stage undefeated, winning seven of the eight matches they played. Pep Guardiola is in charge of a world-class team, which has been expected to lift this title in the last years. However, City didn't even made it to the final yet, and they were knocked out in the quarterfinals of the last three editions. Can they turn that record around and finally fight for the trophy?
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund also enjoy a good streak in the tournament. After losing in the first match against Lazio, the German team won five and draw in two games. Edin Terzic's squad has made it to the quarterfinals after kicking out Sevilla in the Round of 16.
