Borussia M’gladbach and Manchester City are clashing in Puskas Arena in Hungary in part of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League.
Borussia has cooled off lately, and they are winless in their last 3 games. During their last 3 games in Bundesliga, Borussia has scored only 2 goals while conceding 4 goals, and they have lost 2 of those 3 games. Thanks to this negative streak, Borussia M’gladbach has dropped to 8th place with 33 points, and they are further and further away from the Champions League spot. In the group stage of this Champions League, Borussia got lucky, and they ended in second place with 8 points, but an impressive 16 scored goals, and because of that they are advancing to the next stage. Plea is the leading goalscorer for M’gladbach in the Champions League with 5 goals and 2 assists. Musel, Quizera, and Doucoure are all injured for Borussia M’gladbach. In their last game against Mainz in Bundesliga, Borussia was the dominant team with 59% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 83% of the correct passes. Borussia was resting a few players in this game, and it cost them points. Borussia M’gladbach has lost this game 1-2. Borussia was on a nice run in January, but they have cooled off, and at the wrong time.
Manchester City is in brutal form, and they are the best team in Europe right now. City hasn’t lost any of their last 25 games while winning their last 18 games in a row. Manchester City is at the top of the EPL with 59 points, and it looks like they will be the new champions because they have 10 points advantage in front of Manchester United and Leicester. In their last game against Arsenal on the road, Manchester City has had 55% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a high 89% of the correct passes. City scored a goal in the 2nd minute, and they have been defending well after that. The final score was 0-1 in favor of Manchester City. In the Champions League, Manchester City has won their group without a loss, and with only 1 conceded a goal in 6 games. Torres is the leading goalscorer for City in the Champions League with 4 goals, while Aguero, Gundogan, and Sterling added 2 goals each. Ake, Carson, Gundogan, and Sandler are all injured, which means De Bruyne will most likely be in the starting lineup in this game. Manchester City is still a great attacking team, but their defense has been absolute lights out this season, and they are the best team in the EPL, and probably in the Champions League as well.
M’gladbach and City have played 4 games against each other, and City has won 3 while one game ended in a draw. City is in far better form than M’gladbach, and they are a much better team here. I’m taking Manchester City and the goals in this game because I think we will see plenty of them.
