Champions League: B. Mönchengladbach vs Manchester City

B. Mönchengladbach vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second round in Group D of the UEFA Champions League, B. Mönchengladbach take on Manchester City.

Both teams lost in the first round so they are looking for the first points in this match.

B. Mönchengladbach started this season very poor. They lost in the first round of the UEFA Champions League against Sevilla 3-0. In Bundesliga they started with five consecutive lost matches, but they have improved their performance and won last two matches. Borussia Mönchengladbach also have improved their attack and scored 7 goals in the last two matches, but their main problem is their defence. Home team have one of the worst defences in Bundesliga.

Manchester City are a very good side with outstanding players, but for me, they are not an overwhelmingly superior side.” – said their coach André Schubert. “It makes no sense to go into this match afraid.” – he added.

Manchester City started this season amazing in Premier League with five consecutive wins, but they didn’t continue with good performance and won only one of their last four matches in all competitions, including the loss against Juventus in the first round of Champions League. City need three points and they are looking for a win tonight.

We want to put in a good performance here, to give our best and get a win.” – said Manuel Pellegrini, Manchester City manager.
