Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

M'GLADBACH

MAN CITY

24 February 2021 21:00 CET CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Puskás Aréna

Borussia M’gladbach play host to Manchester City at their Puskas Arena in the Champions League last 16, first leg. 

Die Fohlen did well to make it to the knockout stages of the elite competition, but they face an uphill task in the double-header against the star-studded Premier League side. 

Since the Bundesliga team failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Mainz, we are not tempted to put our money on the underdogs.

The Citizens, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team extending their winning run in all competitions to 18 games at the weekend. 

Considering that the game will be played behind closed doors, we predict that the in-form visitors are going to get their job done in the first leg. 

Defender Ake should be the only absentee in the away team as both Aguero and De Bruyne are back to contention. 

Doucoure is injured for the hosts, while both Zakaria and Thuram are rated doubtful for the match.

Team News:

Gladbach appear to have no injury or suspension concerns to contend with ahead of the trip to Budapest, leaving Rose with plenty of selection issues to ponder.

Breel Embolo could start in attack to pose a threat in behind Man City's defence, with Denis Zakaria also likely to come into the starting XI to bolster the midfield.

Man City, meanwhile, remain without the injured Nathan Ake, but have the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne 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.

Borussia Monchengladbach possible starting lineup:
Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Kramer, Neuhaus, Zakaria; Plea, Embolo, Hofmann

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Rodri, Silva, Gundogan; Foden, De Bruyne, Sterling
