Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City
Europe – UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Puskás Aréna.
The Citizens seem to be in no mood to stop. They are delivering wins after wins, and have developed a team of such depth that their bench players could form a team to compete for major trophies.
Pep Guardiola appears to be determined to establish himself as the greatest manager of this generation.
He really needs a UCL trophy to signify his dominance, and considering the struggles the titans of European Football are going through at the moment, this season is the apt time to go after that elusive trophy.
They are also at the top of their league table, and have a lead of ten points over the second-placed Red Devils. Note that the EPL is considered to be the most competitive in the whole of Europe.
Meanwhile, the Colts are going through an inconsistent run at present. They are placed eighth in the German Bundesliga as of now, and they also are conceding goals in plenty lately.
As such, expect Manchester City to deliver another routine victory this Wednesday.
