Pep Guardiola has the potential to win plenty of silverware this season.
But without the Champions League, he doesn’t believe his time at Manchester City will be viewed as a success.
City have yet to progress to the semi-finals under Guardiola, but this season is deemed their strongest chance of claiming the European silverware.
Guardiola’s side won the opening leg, and head to Germany 2-1 on aggregate, but the last meeting between these two sides was not without controversy.
Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden bagged goals in the first leg, but Marco Reus’ strike gave the Germans a vital away goal.
Jude Bellingham’s goal, however, was ruled out after the referee controversially deemed him to have tackled Ederson on the edge of the area.
Subsequent replays showed the English youngster played fairly and poked the ball out of the keeper’s path.
City’s prep for this second leg has been hampered by hard-core Dortmund fans, who spent the night setting off fireworks outside the Premier League side’s hotel.
Police were called, but one of the club’s own security staff dealt with the repeated attempts to disturb them.
They also come into this game having endured a loss to ten-man Leeds last weekend, but with his side competing on four fronts the blip is unlikely to have bothered Guardiola.
He is however without Sergio Aguero this evening, who is struggling with a muscle injury, but Aymeric Laporte could be back in contention after recovering from a hip injury.
Dortmund are without Jadon Sancho, who is still recovering from a thigh injury and have been sweating over the fitness of Reus and Mats Hummels.
They do, however, have a few stats that may give them a confidence boost; one being Erling Haaland’s form.
The striker has only failed to score in three of his 15 Champions League appearances and has bagged a goal in all four of his appearances at home.
