- Monchengladbach v Man City (Over/Under - Over 2.5)
- Monchengladbach v Man City (Both Teams To Score - Yes)
- Monchengladbach v Man City (Anytime Goalscorer - Sterling, R)
Borussia Monchengladbach host Manchester City on Wednesday night at the Puskas Arena in Budapest for the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. Pep Guardiola’s team are in fine form heading into the first leg of the Champions League last 16 and are considered favourite by leading sportsbooks to win the competition.
Manchester City have not lost a match since November 21st when they were beaten in London by Tottenham Hotspur, 2-0. They are on a 25-match unbeaten run in all competitions and the last 18 games in all competitions finished in wins for the Cityzens. That includes a 1-0 away victory to Arsenal on Sunday thanks to a goal from Raheem Sterling in the second minute. The team’s defence has been brilliant over the last 18 games keeping 12 clean sheet victories.
In comparison, Borussia Monchengladbach go into the game in poor form. Their coach, Marco Rose, has agreed to join Borussia Dortmund in the summer and over the last three games in the Bundesliga, Gladbach have not won a match. They were left disappointed by Mainz over the weekend, who tallied a late winner to keep Gladbach from moving closer to the top four.
Borussia Monchengladbach sprung shocks on Real Madrid and Inter Milan in the group stage. Can they do it against the competition favourite on Wednesday night?
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Betting Odds
Wednesday night’s game will take place in Budapest due to the restriction on flights Germany has imposed on the United Kingdom. It is a harsh punishment for the German teams in the competition. RB Leipzig played Liverpool at the Puskas Arena last week and lost 2-0. Borussia Monchengladbach could do the same when the teams play on Wednesday night.
Manchester City could have had a far more difficult draw in the last 16 than Borussia Monchengladbach. The Germans are winless in three straight games and have posted a 13W-11D-7L record in all competitions. They have scored 69 times for an average of 2.23 per game in all competitions, however, they are playing against a team with 12 wins to nil in their last 18 games. Borussia Monchengladbach are at odds of 8/1 to win against the Cityzens.
Guardiola will be confident his team can get a win away from home against a team playing at a neutral venue. The Cityzens have posted a record of 16W-4D-1L away from home in 2020-21. They have scored 44 goals on their travels for an average of 2.59. Meanwhile, a mere 11 goals were conceded for a small average of 0.52. They are at odds of 4/11 to win against the Foals on Wednesday night.
Borussia Monchengladbach played well against Inter Milan and Real Madrid in the group stage, but struggled to keep leads late in games. Against the Foals’ defence, Manchester City will never be out of the game if a goal is given up.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Team News
Guardiola will be confident of getting a Champions League first leg last 16 on Wednesday night. The team are at full-strength, minus Nathan Ake, who continues to have muscle injury. Kevin De Bruyne returned to the team at the weekend and came on as a second half substitute. He is in line to start the match on Wednesday night. Sergio Aguero is also fit and could play a part in the team.
The question going into the game is: which player will be deployed as Manchester City’s central striker? Guardiola has used Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, and Ferran Torres. Gabriel Jesus could be used as could Aguero in the central attacking position.
Rose does not have any injury issues going into the game. The big news centring around the club going into the midweek match is exits or potential exits. Rose will leave for Borussia Dortmund in the offseason. Meanwhile, Florian Neuhaus and Jonas Hofman are considering their futures at the club and could leave as well.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 6/7 - BET NOW
Manchester City have been excellent in defence over the course of their 18-game winning streak. In spite of that good form, Borussia Monchengladbach can certainly get a goal. They scored in five of their six Champions League group stage matches. The Foals scored goals against Real Madrid and Inter Milan in the group, two teams that were expected to topple Borussia Monchengladbach. Seven of Gladbach’s last nine games in all competitions ended with both teams scoring.
Raheem Sterling to score anytime @ 6/5 - BET NOW
After a slow start to the season in all competitions, Raheem Sterling has improved his form over the last month-plus. He now has nine goals in 23 league games and 13 in 33 matches in all competitions. Sterling has bagged goals in three of his last five Premier League matches including the winner versus Arsenal at the weekend. Sterling’s winner was a header rather than a typical shot expected from the winger.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 27/50 - BET NOW
Borussia Monchengladbach may be outmatched by Manchester City going into the game on Wednesday night. Yet, the Foals should be up for the game and put some fear into the Cityzens early on in the game. As the match wears on, Manchester City should put their stamp on the fixture.
Twenty-one of Gladbach’s 31 games in all competitions finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Five of the Foals’ matches in the Champions League group stage ended with over 2.5 goals scored. This is a team that can and will give up goals to opponents. Like Liverpool, Manchester City could practically end this tie in the first leg. Ten of the games during Manchester City’s 18-game winning streak finished with more than 2.5 goals scored.
Manchester City should get a win away in Budapest to Manchester City. The game should be close early on with the Cityzens getting by and opening things up in the second period.
