The hosts outplayed Spain’s Sevilla on the road in the first round. “This is the 12th consecutive participation in the group stage of the Champions League. But they have never won the tournament, having reached the final only in the 2020/21 season. Manchester City have qualified for the spring leg of the Champions League in nine previous European seasons. In the last tournament, Josep Guardiola’s charges reached the semifinals and finished 1st in their group with 4 wins and 2 defeats. In the 25 previous matches in the league, Manchester City have lost only 4 times in 90 minutes, with 18 wins and 3 draws.
The German club was stronger than Danish Copenhagen at home. The vice-champion of Germany for the 7th time in a row will start in the group round of the Champions League. During this time, the team finished in the quarterfinals and 1/8 of the Champions League twice, as well as once in the 1/8 and 1/16 of the Europa League. It is also worth noting that the Dortmund club won the main European tournament in 1997 and reached the finals in 2013. Last season Borussia finished in the third place in their own quartet of the Champions League, with 3 wins and 3 losses, and in the 1/16 finals of the UEFA Champions League they failed to get past Rangers (2-4 at home, 2-2 away). In the previous 9 games in the main time Borussia have won 3 games, with 1 draw and 5 defeats.
