Man City vs Monchengladbach Preview

Manchester City are set to play Borussia Monchengladbach at the Puskas Arena on March 16th, Tuesday, for the second leg of the Round of 16 of the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League.

Pep Guardiola's City come into this tie on the back of a 3-0 win over Fulham in an English Premier League clash on Sunday with goals coming from John Stones, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero.

In contrast to their forthcoming rivals who are lording it over the Premier league, Borussia Monchengladbach's season got worse as they lost 3-1 to FC Augsburg in a Bundesliga encounter yesterday. As it is, Marco Rose's outfit are already on the backfoot having fallen behind to goals from Jesus and Bernardo Silva in a 0-2 defeat in the first leg a fortnight ago.

Team news

Manchester City will still be without their Dutch defender Nathaniel Ake who is yet to recover from his injury. Other than that, Guardila has no injury issues as such what with even the long-term absentee Sergio Aguero returning to his starting XI.

Gladbach manager Rose will have to do without the services of left-back Ramy Bensebaini, midfielder Christoph Kramer and forward Torben Musel, all being on the injured list.

Manchester City probable XI in a 4-2-3-1 formation: Ederson Moraes (goal), Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero

Borussia Monchengladbach probable XI in a 4-3-3 formation: Yann Sommer (goal), Stefan Lainer, Matthias Ginter, Nico Elvedi, Oscar Wendt, Denis Zakaria, Florian Neuhaus, Breel Embolo, Lars Stindl, Marcus Thuram, Alassane Plea

Gladbach could find City's firepower too hot to handle in their present form. It would come as a surprise if the result of the first leg isn't repeated at Puskas Arena on Tuesday night. Pep Guardiola's men are on their way to the Round of 8 unless their German rivals can produce something spectacular.
