Man City v Borussia Monchengladbach – Emirates Stadium at 19:45 live on BT Sport 2
Man City are the only Premier League team currently through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League. The Citizens are currently sitting in second, two points behind Juventus and can only top the group if Juve lose away to Sevilla and City defeat Borussia Monchengladbach tonight.
Home and away defeats to the Italian champions has all but ended their chances of securing what should be an easier draw, but for once, their form in Europe is better than that domestically.
City have now W4-D2-L4 in their last 10 league games, their last outing a 2-0 away defeat to Stoke. Confidence will be low but this is a good chance to get themselves out of a little slump. However, based on the reverse of this fixture, I don’t see them justifying their 1.70 price for this evening.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side came away from Germany with all 3 points but it was a fortunate victory, with Joe Hart having an outstanding match. A first half penalty save from the England number 1, a second half goal from Demichelis and a last minute penalty from Aguero went a long way in securing them qualification with 2 matches to spare.
Borussia Monchengladbach come in to the match looking to secure their continued involvement in Europe, albeit dropping into the Europa League. They are 2 points above Sevilla and will be hoping Juventus do them a favour this evening.
However, finishing 3rd is in their own hands and are good value to avoid defeat. Gladbach haven’t lost in Europe or the Bundesliga since September, now 13 games unbeaten in the two competitions. They have won 9 and drawn 4 of those 13 matches and are 10 matches unbeaten in the league having lost their opening 5 matches.
The momentum is definitely with the visitors and they will take confidence in the fact City have lost 3 in 10 at the Etihad since they lost to the Citizens, which wasn’t a convincing win either.
They held Juventus both home and away and put 4 past Sevilla last time out. They are great value +0.5 on the Asian Handicap betting market at 2.31 which will be my recommendation for tonight.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Borussia Monchengladbach +0.5 at 2.31
