Manchester City face-off Borussia Monchengladbach in the second leg of the round-of-16 game between the two in the Champion’s League. The former has a 2-0 lead and will start as favorites ahead of this fixture. The match will be played at the Puskas Arena from 1:30 AM (IST).
Nathan Ake will be the only player to be missing out on this game due to an injury. Otherwise, all the players are at Pep’s disposal.
3 of Marco Rose’s players are unavailable due to injuries. They are Ramy Bensebaini, Christoph Kramer, Torben Musel.
Manchester City will certainly have an upper hand as they had won the first leg comfortably by 2 goals. Gabriel Jesus and Bernando Silva’s goals sealed it off for Manchester City in the first leg. City also have emphatically made a comeback in the Premier League after their 0-2 loss against arch-rivals, Manchester United. They are coming on the back off a huge 5-2 victory against Southampton and certainly will be high on confidence.
On the other hand, Monchengladbach are coming on the back off a defeat to Augsburg and have not tasted victory in 8 games. This was certainly not the kind of form they would have hoped to be in before their tussle with giants, City. Marco Rose has been under the scanner for the team’s dismal performances but he has been publicly backed by the director of Monchengladbach.
