Pep Guardiola said after Man City’s 1-0 win over Arsenal that his team will need “many, many” similar performances where they narrowly earn a victory if they are to keep their incredible run of wins going.
City were made to work hard by some organised Arsenal defending but should find the going a bit easier in Budapest when they take on Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday evening.
Man City are the favourites to win the Champions League outright and should put one foot in the quarter-finals by beating Gladbach by more than one goal, an outcome you can back at 5/6 with bet365*.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Man City Recommended Bets:
Some bookies have already paid out on Man City winning the Premier League such is the strength of their position at the top of the table and the quality of their play since losing to Tottenham in November.
In contrast, Borussia Monchengladbach are eighth in the Bundesliga and as big as 200/1 with Paddy Power to win the Champions League which clearly shows the difference in quality between these two teams.
That is not to say that Gladbach are without their quality players.
Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram will be a handful, Lars Stindl is their creative force and Nico Elvedi is the rock in defence.
Man City, though, have genuine world-class talent throughout their team and will surely have enough to overcome the challenges of the Bundesliga side. We fancy Guardiola’s men to win both halves at 17/10 with Virgin Bet.

Key Battle to Look Out For
Despite having both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero fit again, Guardiola opted to play without a recognised number nine against Arsenal.
It will be very interesting to see if he changes that approach against Gladbach but whatever he decides, Man City will pose a threat from multiple different angles.
Bernardo Silva is one player who has been doing very well of late despite not getting the headlines that Ilkay Gundogan has and we like the look of a bet on the Portuguese midfielder to score at 14/5 with 888sport.
