Has Moenchengladbach’s form taken a dip recently?

Moenchengladbach is down to 8th place in the Bundesliga now. They have won just one match from their last 5. Furthermore, in the last 3 games, they have 2 losses and both came from teams trying to avoid relegation in the Bundesliga.

Another worrying stat of the German team is the fact that they have had only 3 clean sheets in their last 10 matches. Their last good game was against Dortmund on 22.01 (a month ago) where they still conceded 2 goals although they managed to win the game.

Will Manchester City keep rolling?

Manchester City is running away with the title in the English Premier League. It looks like they will have their sights on the most prized possession in European football – The UCL trophy. This team is coming off a whopping 18-game win streak across all tournaments and we don’t see them slowing down.

Not only that, but the last time they actually lost a game was in November 2020. Since then, they have been on a 25-game unbeaten streak.

Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Manchester City: The top betting tips our experts have selected

  • Man City to score in Both halves: Yes @ 4/5
  • Clean Sheet: Man City – Yes @ 1/1
  • Cards in the game: Under 3.5 @ 5/6

Man City to score in Both halves: Yes @ 4/5

In their last 6 matches, Man City scored 2 or more goals in 5 of them. Except for their last game against Arsenal, the team has put the ball in the net in each half in that span. Moenchengladbach is a team that struggles to keep a clean sheet. Even if Man City allows some rotational players to enter, they will be fired up to prove their worth and the team may keep scoring.

Clean Sheet: Man City – Yes @ 1/1

This one is not granted and this is why we get such decent odds. Still, over their last 8 matches, City managed to keep the ball of their net 5 times. This is not something we want to underestimate.

Moenchengladbach scored only 2 goals in their last 3 matches and while we are sure they will try to find the goal in this match, we think that City’s defense will be able to handle the push.

Cards in the game: Over 3.5 @ 5/6

This is a bet on the referee. Soares Dias has an interesting track record in the Champions League this year with 18 yellow cards over 3 games. Furthermore, in his last 8 matches, he has shown 5 or more cards in seven of them. This is quite the strictness that we are seeing, and we think that 4 cards in this match are something that may very well happen.

City’s last 3 matches saw a total of 11 cards being shown while their opponents from Borussia have taken part in 3 games with a total of 12 cards. The value is definitely on the Over selection here.
