Odds: Borussia MG 14/5, Draw 14/5, Man City 17/20
Manchester City travel to Germany later this week to take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League group stage.
City are in desperate need of a victory after losing three of their last four matches including their opening group game against Juventus at the Etihad Stadium.
That 2-1 defeat – when City had earlier looked on for a famous victory – means the Blues have plenty of work to do to ensure they ultimately reach the knockout stages.
Monchengladbach have a corner of their own to turn, having lost heavily against Sevilla earlier this month, so whoever loses this match could be cast adrift with just two games played.
City have plenty of injury problems to contend with, as David Silva, Fabian Delph, Wilfried Bony, Kelechi Iheanacho, Eliaquim Mangala and Gael Clichy are all unavailable, while Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure are both minor doubts.
Below is the side we predict City will start Wednesday’s match with:
- Yann Sommer
- Roel Brouwers
- Tony Jantschke
- Julian Korb
- Oscar Wendt
- André Hahn
- Thorgan Hazard
- Håvard Nordtveit
- Lars Stindl
- Ibrahima Traoré
- Joe Hart
- Martín Demichelis
- Aleksandar Kolarov
- Vincent Kompany
- Bacary Sagna
- Kevin De Bruyne
- Samir Nasri
- Raheem Sterling
- Sergio Agüero
