Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Manchester City Predictions
Pickswise's Expert Predictions & Analysis
Home or away, Manchester City is just about unbeatable at the moment, so there’s no reason to think playing on a neutral venue will make any odds.
City extended their winning streak to 18 with a hard-fought (but thoroughly deserved) 1-0 success at Arsenal on Sunday and are now unbeaten in 25 matches.
It’s going to take either something very fortunate or an opponent who’s very good to derail Pep Guardiola’s winning machine and Borussia Monchengladbach, without a dollop or two of luck, probably aren’t good enough to stop City.
Indeed, they’ve gone right off the boil in the Bundesliga with a run of just two points from a possible 12 when, having looked at the fixture list, they’d probably have penciled themselves in for a minimum of nine points.
The two losses in this sequence have been at home to bottom-five outfits Koln and Mainz, hardly results or performances that breed confidence.
The goals have dried up for both Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram and they don’t even have any kind of home advantage for this tie – it’s being played in Budapest.
City should win this and win it comfortably.
