Tip Mönchengladbach - Manchester City
For some time now, results haven’t been going Borussia Monchengladbach’s way and it could get worse, as the Germans face Manchester City in their Round of 16 Champions League clash. Monchengladbach will host this game in Budapest, hoping for a first win in four matches. The home team’s poor run hasn’t been made easier by the recent announcement that manager Marco Rose will move to Borussia Dortmund after this season. Monchengladbach are coming from a loss to Mainz in Bundesliga, leaving them with one win in the last five matches and one clean sheet in six matches. It will be interesting to see how they adapt to playing at a neutral venue but Monchengladbach have two straight home losses. They’ve conceded twice in four of their last five matches. The Germans just returned to the Champions League for the first time since 2016. In the group stages, Monchengladbach’s only wins came in the home and away victories over Shakthar Donetsk. It means they’ll need to improve by a lot here, especially having conceded at least two goals in four of their six group stage matches. They have only one home win in six Champions League matches.
Manchester City registered yet another win in their run up to this clash, beating Arsenal 1-0 for their 18th straight win and 25th straight unbeaten outing. They’ve scored multiple goals in four of the last five matches and seem comfortable even as they go to their third straight away match. Four of their last five matches have seen three or more goals scored and they are among the favorites in the Champions League. Manchester City didn’t lose a game at the group stages, winning five and drawing one, and they have five straight clean sheets in the competition. City have lost only once in the last 16 Champions League matches, and are unbeaten in seven away from home, with three clean sheets in the process.
