Competence: Champions League
Market: Manchester City win
Odd: 1/2 @ 888sport
Looking to take an early lead on Wednesday night, Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach will meet at the Puskás Arena in Budapest this week.
Starting with what are temporary midweek hosts, Borussia Monchengladbach know they will certainly face a tough test on Wednesday night. Facing the Champions League favorites in Budapest, Marco Rose’s team has displayed a number of inconsistencies over the past month. With the announcement that their head coach will be moving to Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season, the Colts were last seen over the weekend when they put on another worrying display. Failing to build momentum ahead of their midweek European showdown, Gladbach suffered a surprising 2-1 loss to Mainz at home. Despite picking up what appears to be a small rebound from DFP Pokal against Stuttgart in the February opener, Rose’s side have managed to win just one of their last four consecutive Bundesliga games.
As for the visitors, while Gladbach might be in the midst of a slow streak, the atmosphere on Manchester City’s pitch is red-hot. Managing to once again extend their buffer at the top of the Premier League table to double digits over the weekend, Pep Guardiola’s side clinched a 1-0 win at Arsenal and has surprised many across Europe. . With what would be a famous triplet season at the top of his schedule, the former Bayern Munich manager finds his team enjoying a remarkable 18-win streak across all formats. Really rebounding from that 2-0 loss at Tottenham in November, it should also be noted that the Premier League’s top-flight players are unbeaten in each of their last 25 consecutive appearances in all competitions. With Raheem Sterling enjoying his own individual purple patch in front of goal, we backed City for an early midweek lead.
