Manchester - Even if BVB were currently in top form, they would not be a favorite against one of the favorites in the Champions League.
After the mixed past few weeks, Edin Terzic's team is now traveling to Manchester as a clear underdog for the quarter-final duel with Pep Guardiolas Citizens.

The expectations are low, the BVB professionals can play freely.
“It's a very interesting constellation because you can really only win,” says BVB boss Hans-Joachim Watzke and adds: “If you are eliminated, everyone says that it was clear.
But if you kick them out, of course it's a world sensation.
As a result, you as a player have fun with something like that. "
