Top Champions League predictions for Monchengladbach vs. Manchester City

The model is leaning under 3.5 goals in Wednesday’s matchup between Monchengladbach and Manchester City. The Cityzens have not allowed more than one goal since their last defeat, a 2-0 setback against Tottenheim in an English Premier League match on Nov. 21. 

The club has recorded 18 clean sheets since then, including a 1-0 triumph over Arsenal on Sunday. Manchester City posted five wins and a draw in the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League group stage, scoring 13 goals while surrendering just one.

Since posting a 4-2 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga on Jan. 22, Monchengladbach has registered a total of five goals in as many matches. Two of those tallies came in its only win during the stretch, a 2-1 triumph over VfB Stuttgart in the German DFB-Pokal Round of 16. Monchengladbach faced Manchester City twice in the group stage in 2016-17 and produced just one goal, which is one of the main reasons why the model is leaning toward the under on Wednesday.
