Manchester City continues its Champions League season with a round of 16 against Borussia Mönchengladbach

Manchester City expects a positive result in the round of 16 of the Champions League against Borussia Mönchengladbach

Due to Covid-19 restrictions in Germany, this game will be played in Budapest, Hungary but is still considered Mönchengladbach’s home game, meaning that all goals for City are considered away goals, while City won their group relatively easily, while Gladbach next to Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk rose in a difficult group

Pep Guardiola has brought a strong 23-man roster to Hungary, with Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan all fit following recent concerns, the only one absent is Nathan Ake, who continues to feel comfortable from New Year injuries recovered

City probably showed the best Champions League performance under Pep Guardiola in this phase last season and defeated Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabeu before winning behind closed doors with the same result at Etihad Turning out men by Zinedine Zidane

The last 20 minutes could give a good idea of ​​who will face West Ham

With a two-goal pillow, Guardiola can afford to bring in subs, but may have those already out there finish the game and then turn to Stones, De Bruyne and others for the league game

Gabriel Jesus makes up for this mistake and transforms another brilliant cancelo cross from close range, which Bernardo returns to the six-yard box

The cross goes into the penalty area and Alassane Plea shoots a shot on goal with acrobatic effort. Just wide

City can end that tie tonight if they step it up this second half, but you wonder how Gung-Ho Guardiola is going to deal with City’s past disappointments in Europe

You are currently in control of the tie: do you risk losing it to get an easier return leg?

Gabriel Jesus is done with all the time in the world after a bad back pass but he takes too long and lets the challenge in and prevents him from getting a shot Very poor

It was a more even start to the second half, Gladbach trying to create a little more than the first half and City just making sure they were solid behind and in possession

So we want to know if you can narrow down these formidable players to one player of the season

City tour and have full control The only disadvantage of this half is that only one goal was scored

But what a goal it was, a nice cross from Joao Cancelo that headed Bernardo home well. More of that after the break, blues!

Raheem Sterling wanted a penalty or a corner from his last attack, but City scored instead from the goal kick

They put a lot of pressure on the whole game, punishing their opponents for dropping them now. There are more goals if they want them

Cancelo picks up a clearance, cuts in on his right foot and sends a perfect cross over the last defender to the back post. Bernardo has tuned his run perfectly and heads a ball into the far corner

It looks like the defender actually got a touch, so it should have been a corner, not a penalty

For a player of his quality and effectiveness, Raheem Sterling can be so frustrating at times

City created three possibilities in the first 15 minutes – the first was disappointed by the touch of the Englishman, the second by him who wanted too much time on the ball, and the third by being touched by Jesus’ tense right foot took

For the first time Gladbach gets in exaggerated and has the goal in view Kyle Walker comes back well and cuts the low ball in the middle. A warning sign

This is the case a few times Sterling has failed to make the most of a promising opportunity

He’s excellent at getting into these positions but sometimes struggles with that final decision

A positive start for the team, but they will feel like they need a goal to achieve their dominance on the pitch

The town has a big chance, but it just can’t find a place to take a shot away. Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan all competed half a meter from the defense
