Borussia Monchengladbach vs Man City

Manchester City will return to Champions League action later this month.

City navigated their group in the competition with ease, and have since been handed a fairly favourable last-16 draw.

Pep Guardiola’s side will take on Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach over two legs.

The Sky Blues have faced off with Gladbach on three occasions previously, and came out on top each time.

Man City’s tie with Gladbach moved to Budapest

The first of the Citizens’ two meetings with Gladbach is set to take place on February 24th, and was supposed to be in Germany.

However, due to the Covid-19 restrictions currently in place across the country, the venue for the first-leg has since been changed to the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

UEFA released the following statement regarding the situation:

“UEFA can confirm that the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg match between Borussia VfL 1900 Mönchengladbach and Manchester City FC will now take place at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest.

“The date of the match (24 February 2021) and kick-off time (21:00CET) will remain the same.

“UEFA would like to thank Borussia VfL 1900 Mönchengladbach and Manchester City FC for their close cooperation and support, as well as the Hungarian Football Federation for their assistance and agreeing to host the match in question.”
