Coral’s bet of the day

  • Wealth of attacking talent on show in China
  • New Man City manager Guardiola knows how to defeat Dortmund
  • The Sky Blues gaffer beat BVB with Bayern in four of six Bundesliga battles, losing only once

Man City 9/2 to defeat Dortmund in 90 mins and both teams to score (max stake £20)

There’s a big match on in China (taking place at 00:30 BST) as the International Champions Cup continues, pitting German giants Borussia Dortmund against Premier League big-guns Manchester City.

So, for punters’ pleasure, Coral have picked out a plum punt from this battle as our bet of the day, with Man City priced at a nifty 9/2 to defeat Dortmund in 90 minutes of the match-up and both teams to score. Please note, this special carries a maximum stake of €/£20.

Read on for the reasons a Sky Blues victory with goals from both sides is the bet to back in this marvellous midweek match…

Guardiola had the measure of BVB in Bundesliga battles

Pep Guardiola could not have wished for better opposition than Thomas Tuchel’s team, a side he knows well having come out on top of BVB with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race in all three of his seasons in charge.

In fact, the Catalan coach lost just one of his six league duels with Dortmund, winning four and drawing the other, with his results including a 5-1 drubbing of BVB last term.

Though the Black and Yellows are not without threat, having still found the net in that demolition, and after schooling City’s local rivals Manchester United 4-1 in their opening International Champions Cup clash.

There really is a wealth of attacking talent on show in this tussle, though the Sky Blues’ riches arguably run deeper with Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho, David Silva and Nolito all on the roster and perhaps set to grab minutes.

While, Dortmund’s impressive performers in East Asia so far include lethal poacher Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and teenage sensation Ousmane Dembele.

So, there are plenty of goals in this game, but the Citizens can steal the show with manager Guardiola knowing how to manoeuvre against the opposition. With that in mind, Man City at 9/2 (max stake £20) to beat BVB in normal time and both score looks awesome value, don’t miss out.
