Monchengladbach vs Manchester City, UCL 24.02.2021

High-flying Manchester City are expected to make light work of Borussia Monchengladbach in their Champions League round of 16 first leg encounter which has been rescheduled to Budapest due to Germany’s tight health and safety protocols.

The Citizens have suffered ignominious losses in the knockout phases in recent years but they come into this as one of the favorites to win it all this season.

Betway betting app have terrific prices for the tips we will be looking at from this clash.


Borussia had a mixed bag of results in a chaotic group D but did just enough to finish second behind eventual group winners Real Madrid. They had an excellent start to the group games but cooled off at the end with losses at home to Inter and away to Real Madrid and had to rely on their earlier investments and positive results elsewhere to clinch second spot.

They are also showing a bit of inconsistency in the Bundesliga. A measly return of just two points from their last four league games has left down them eighth on the log with competitions for European places this season looking extremely close.

Gladbach’s forwards Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram have had subpar seasons compared to their output last season and Marco Rose will be hoping to get them fired up for this match.


City have been knocking on the door of this competition in the last few years. They looked set to make a deep run last season when they knocked Real Madrid out at this very stage but they lost to Lyon in the next round prolonging their quest for European glory.

Pep Guardiola seems to have found some answers this season. They have been utterly dominant in the group stages and in the EPL. Their defence has gone up a notch higher, only conceding one goal in their six Group C games, while winning five and drawing one.

They lead the EPL by 10 points following their 1-0 win at Arsenal this Sunday. With De Bruyne back in action, it is going to be scary hours for their opponents the rest of the way.

City are in a class of their own at the moment. Sunday’s 1-0 over Arsenal was a masterclass of how to dominate a game from start to finish, even with the scoreline failing to do justice to the domination. They have now won 18 games on the trot and we quite fancy them to make it 19 when they line up against this Gladbach outfit that has been out of sorts in recent weeks. 14 of their 18 wins were by more than a goal and we are backing them to once again do that on Wednesday @ 1.76.

Man City’s terrific run has been spurred by their rock-solid defence. They have conceded just six goals in their 18-match winning streak, keeping a clean sheet in 12 of these matches. They were even a notch higher in this competition with just a goal conceded in the group stage. Pep is likely to be conservative in his approach for this game and although we expect City to win, their emphasis will be to keep the other side at bay. We, therefore, are going for Under 3.5 goals here @ 1.45 as our final betting prediction for this game.
