This game between Borussia Mönchengladbach and Manchester City at the Stadion im Borussia-Park had looked like it might prove decisive in terms of who would qualify for the last 16 alongside Barcelona.

It was starting to look decidedly ominous for Manchester City’s Champions’ League aspirations after half-an-hour or so of Match-day 4.  Not only were Pep Guardiola’s expensively assembled team losing 1-0 at home to Barcelona, but Borussia Mönchengladbach were a goal to the good at home to Celtic.  

By the end of the evening, City’s position looked an awful lot healthier as they turned things round to beat Barca 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium, while Gladbach eventually had to be content with a 1-1 draw against Celtic after going down to 10-men following the dismissal of Julian Korb 15-minutes from time.


There are still only three points between the two teams and a victory here for Gladbach would ensure that qualification goes down to the wire.  The problem for the Germans is that their last game is away to Barcelona, whereas Manchester City finish at home to Celtic.  The advantage is very much with the Citizens.

Gladbach are only 11th in the Bundesliga ahead of their game against FC Köln on Saturday.  As is the Champions’ League where they’ve only score four goals, they’ve struggled to find the back of the net domestically, with just 10 goals to their name.

Manchester City go to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday, looking to improve on a run that has seen them win just two of their last nine matches in all competitions.

Gladbach have to go all out for the win here and the longer the game goes without them scoring or being ahead on the night, the more chances they are going to have to take.  City would be reasonably content with a draw, so they will probably be happy to just keep Gladbach at bay early on.  

It suggests that there could be more goals after the interval than in the first-half and that looks the bet here.
