  • Borussia have lost their last 6 games in all competitions.
  • Manchester City have conceded only once in this Champions League campaign.
  • Borussia M.Gladbach have conceded at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches (Champions League).

Manchester City vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction: 

Manchester City hold a solid first leg advantage after earning a 2-0 win. A 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday night means City have failed to win just one of their last 24 competitive matches ahead of this second leg match up. City’s defence has appeared slightly shakier than usual in recent weeks, but Guardiola’s men should have no problems whatsoever repeating their first-leg performance and getting the job done in style. Monchengladbach and their soon-to-be ex-manager just cannot find inspiration from anywhere on the pitch at the moment, and we expect City to chalk up another triumph on their way to the last eight.
