Rose Vs Guardiola will be tightly fought

Announced as the Borussia Dortmund manager for next season, Marco Rose leads his exciting Borussia Monchengladbach side into their ‘home’ leg of their last 16 tie against Manchester City. The match will be played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, which takes away a bit of home advantage from the Colts, who would much rather have the game at Borussia-Park, but with the nature of the world at the moment they will have to make the most of the hand they have been dealt. Rose’s men are large outsiders mainly given Manchester City come into this one in the midst of an 18 game winning run, they are rightly strong favourites.


Gladbach have struggled domestically, to juggle both competitions, and sit eight in the Bundesliga, with key players spending extended spells on the sidelines in recent months. Crucial attackers in the form of French duo Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram have recovered and should be raring to go come Wednesday evening. City have taken their foot off the gas after taking the lead quite frequently this term, maybe they will not this time around with it being an aggregate tie however I think the prices are too far apart. City too short and Gladbach too big, so using the Asian Handicap I have found an interesting selection just below evens.

Rose’s men qualified out of their group at the expense of Serie A league leaders Inter Milan and have proven that they can show up in the big matches. Despite being eighth they have beaten Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund this season along with leading Real Madrid by two goals going into the 87th minute in late October. Their offensive quality should not be underestimate, Rose is putting all his eggs in the Champions League basket.


The goal line looks quite high for a Champions League first leg and I can see a couple of outcomes in the match that involve just two goals.

  • Gladbach have scored in nine of 10.
  • Gladbach have conceded in seven of 10.
  • Gladbach have seen both teams score in seven of 10.
  • Gladbach have seen over 2.5 goals in six of 10.
  • City have scored in 10 of 10 and in their last 19.
  • City have conceded in four of 10.
  • City have seen both teams score in four of 10.
  • City have seen over 2.5 goals in six of 10.

Gladbach will put up a fight, City host top four side West Ham United at the weekend and so would be more than happy to get ahead by one goal and see it out.
