Manchester City vs Borussia Moenchengladbach: Match Preview and OddsPublished September 14, 2016 by Sol FH
After a rescheduling due to rain last night, Man City set to host Moenchengladbach tonight at 19:45 GMT.
Sometimes the weather gods are not on your side, which is exactly what the case was yesterday at Etihad Stadium. The torrential rain that took over Manchester last night would not break for the match to begin, so it will be played tonight instead. Not much has changed, Man City are still very heavy favorites to win tonight, and Pep Guardiola is confident that the match will be a blowout for his squad. Last night's Champions League matches featured some incredible blowouts, like Barcelona's 7-0 trouncing over Celtic, or Bayern's 5-0 over FC Rostov, but Manchester City are looking for a similar outcome tonight.
After a big win for City in the Manchester derby, Guardiola is thrilled that his team is healthy and looking in top form so early in the season. True, Gladbach are a tough team, but lest we forget that this is City at home, and few teams leave here with an away win. The only players that are still off the pitch with injuries are Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, but they are very close to coming back and in the meantime, City have many more star players in their arsenal.
The FA suspended City player Sergio Aguero, but he is available and will be used for the European matches. The striker is arguably the best in England at the moment and is a blessing to have on the pitch threatening the defenders and the goal.
The German squad is dangerous, but they will most likely not pose much of a problem for City; especially with a full roster. Expect this match to end with 3 goals for the home side and 0 for the visitors.
