After three consecutive defeats in all competitions, Borussia M'gladbach have returned to winning ways as they defeated Augsburg and Stuttgart in their last two games. However, their defence has so far proved to be unreliable and in their first game of the Champions League group stage, they suffered a heavy defeat against Sevilla. Stranzl (1/0 d) will miss out.
Man City made a strong start in English Premier League this season and were being tipped to impose their dominance in Champions League as well but they were soon brought back to earth as they suffered a home defeat against Juventus in their first game of the Champions League group stage. They need to quickly regroup themselves as this competition is a definite priority for them. Hart (6/0 g), Silva (4/1 m) and Toure (7/1 m) are doubtful to play while Mangala (6/0 d), Clichy (0/0 d), Kompany (5/2 d), Delph (2/0 m), Nasri (6/1 m) and Bony (5/0 f) will miss out.
Man City have star players in almost all positions in their squad and they invested heavily over the transfer market to further strengthen their squad. In such a context, there is no excuse for failure. English teams have been very inconsistent in this competition but I will back City to win because the quality is still present in the squad and on their day, they can defeat anyone. Besides, the manager's job depends on this competition and I think motivation will be high.
