Manchester City take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the first leg of the teams’ Champions League last-16 tie this evening.

Bundesliga outfit Gladbach are the nominal home team for the clash, which was relocated from Germany to the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary due to coronavirus-related travel restrictions. Gladbach are in somewhat uninspired form heading into the game, with two defeats, two draws and one win in their last five outings across all competitions. Man City, meanwhile, are on a scarily impressive run right now, having won 18 straight matches in all competitions, including a 1-0 Premier League win over Arsenal at the weekend in their last match.

Pep Guardiola’s side will also be looking to build upon a strong group-stage campaign in the Champions League this season. The English top-flight leaders won five and drew one as they topped their group ahead of Porto, while Gladbach finished second behind Real Madrid in their own group. The German club will know they face a tough challenge this evening, especially having lost their home advantage – even without factoring in the absence of fans – due to the venue change.
