Make no mistake. Gladbach is in terrible form. The Bundesliga squad has played too hard to give up on their Champions League dream, though.
If Gladbach doesn’t worry so much about offense, they can slow down Manchester City’s defense. Raheem Sterling scored the Sky Blues fastest goal of the season against Arsenal on Sunday. Look what happened?
Sterling’s goal was the only one Man City scored in the match. Gladbach must think defense first. If they do so, they could catch the Sky Blues napping and grab a goal on the counter.
