Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Preview

Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach face off each other at Puskas Arena, Budapest on Wednesday for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 knockout tie.

Marco Rose's Gladbach have spent a chequered season and come into the Budapest clash on the back of four winless Bundesliga outings, the last one being a 1-2 loss to Mainz 05 on Saturday that left Die Fohlen struggling on the 8th spot of the Bundesliga points table. This is stark contrast to the form of their forthcoming opponents who romped through to their 18th consecutive win across all competitions when they beat Arsenal 0-1 in an away game last weekend.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Player Form

Rose isn't beset with injury or suspension issues as such ahead of his side's trip to Budapest, thus leaving him with plenty of selection options to consider.

He could choose for Breel Embolo to start in attack and pose a threat in behind Man City's defence along with Denis Zakaria who can come in to bolster the midfield space.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, will remain without the injured Nathaniel Ake, but will get a boost from the return of Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne who are available again. Rodri and Phil Foden were rested against Arsenal so are likely to return to Guardiola's starting XI, with Kyle Walker an option to replace Oleksandr Zinchenko at the back.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Lineups

Borussia Monchengladbach probable starting XI:

Manchester City probable starting XI:

Ederson (goal); Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Rodri, Silva, Gundogan; Foden, De Bruyne, Sterling

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Verdict & Prediction

Given the huge difference in recent forms between the two sides, one can't envisage Gladbach getting even a goal past City leave aside winning the tie. But then Champions' League battles have their own share of surprises too. Nevertheless, a 0-2 result for Guardiola's men look to be on the cards.

City have a favourable recent history, too, with their German opponents having won three of their last four encounters since 2015 against the Munich club.
