We will take a look at Booster99 bookie review prices for our betting tips for this game.
Manchester City’s long held ambitions of success in Europe’s most coveted club competition seem to be getting closer to realization. They breezed past the group stage and took control of the first leg on this round-of-16 matchup with a clinical 2-0 shutdown in Germany thanks to goals from Silva and Gabriel Jesus.
They now look all but set for a fourth successive quarterfinal berth which proven to be their kryptonite, having been sent packing in the last eight by Liverpool, Tottenham and Lyon in the past three seasons. The Cityzens are however in the form of their life right now, dominating both domestically and in this tournament.
Guadiola’s men responded brilliantly to their derby loss to Manchester United by turning on their rage in the subsequent games, thrashing Southampton and Fulham in quick order. With a virtually fully fit squad to pick, Gladbach could very well be in line to join this list.
Despite excellent performances in the group stages that saw them earn a berth in this round of 16 knockout phase from a group that had both Real Madrid and Inter Milan, Monchengladbach have been underwhelming and even their most ardent supporters would admit that a snowball stands a better chance in hell compared to Gladbach’s chances of upsetting the bookmaker’s odds in this tie.
Marco Rose who is set to take over the reins at Dortmund in the summer is witnessing one of the worst farewell parties as his side has now gone eight matches without a win, following the 3-1 loss to Augsburg on Friday night.
Die Fohlen are 10th in the Bundesliga and in a fight for their lives to qualify for Europe this season and that could be a bigger worry for them as opposed to pulling an upset here.

MAN CITY VS MONCHENGLADBACH BETTING PREDICTIONS
Man City are quite rightly clear favorites to win this. They made light work of Gladbach in the first leg and are expected to breeze through them in this return. They are playing breathtaking football at the moment, which has seen them win 23 of their last 24 matches across all competitions. The odds for City to win are not enticing enough though, hence why we are picking -1 handicap @ 1.66 as our first betting tip for the game. Aside from the United loss, this pick has landed in City’s last three wins as well as that first leg.
Although City’s defence has been breached in recent weeks, they shouldn’t have too much to deal with here. They have kept a clean sheet in six straight Champions League games, after conceding the only goal of the campaign on matchday 1 against Porto. Gladbach are known to be enterprising upfront but they cannot seem to break out of their funk at the moment. They will find the going tough against this well-oiled City backline. We are therefore going for BTTS No @ 1.76 as our final tip for the game.
