Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach welcome home Manchester City for the Champions League last 16 ties in their first leg. The match schedules for Wednesday at the Puskas Arena, with a kickoff at 11 pm.

It is the first time Borussia Monchengladbach competed in the Champions League knockout stages. The side reached the final of the old European Cup in 1977, while Manchester City is looking to win the competition for the first time in its history.

After a promising start to the season, the wind seems to have eased out for the Gladbach’s campaign in recent weeks. The recent pool of poor results is another confirmation by manager Marco Rose who will be departing the club for Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Their recent 2-1 loss to Mainz 05 leaves Monchengladbach languishing at eighth position in the Bundesliga and nine points adrift of the Champions League qualification positions. Given the current form of Manchester City, it is a bad time for Marco Rose to face against an in-form City side.

Man City’s 1-0 win over Arsenal extended their win to 18 consecutive matches in all competitions. Raheem Sterling’s early minute goal proved the difference against Mikel Arteta’s side.

It is an impressive display for City managing to keep eight clean sheets in ten Premier League matches. The Citizens have only conceded once in six matches along the way to top Group C comfortably.
