Wednesday Champions League Quarters 2nd Leg: Miller picks Liverpool v Real Madrid, Dortmund v Manchester City
Can Erling Braut Håland power Borussia Dortmund past UEFA Champions League favorites Manchester City?
Are you nervous, Manchester City fans and futures bettors?
Because I would be.
Borussia Dortmund was robbed of a goal in the first leg, but still comes back to Germany in position to advance past the UEFA Champions League betting favorites with a 1-0 win or a two-goal victory.
And the Cityzens have not played well in this round in the past, going out at this stage in four straight years as the favorites in the tie. Dortmund really could do this, especially with Erling Braut Håland and Jadon Sancho.
How ironic would it be if the son of a City player (Håland) and a former City player – and hopefully a soon to be Manchester United player (Sancho) – knock the Cityzens out of the only tournament they truly care about winning.
In the other tie, Real Madrid just beat Barcelona in the Clasico, and can now knock out the defending Premier League winners Liverpool. Real leads 3-1 on aggregate, and can move on with an early goal or two.
