On Wednesday, Manchester City will take on Mönchengladbach in the first leg of its Round of 16 showdown in the Champions League. Countless folks out there believe Man City will come out on top and it's easy to understand why.
The English Premier League leaders are simply unstoppable right now and are looking like the best team in the world. With all due respect to Monchengladbach, there's just no way City doesn't win this showdown. Here's why:
3. Manchester City looks unbeatable right now
Just how impressive has Manchester City been? Well, the team hasn't lost a game in its last 25 matches. Seriously! Perhaps even more impressive, the club is on an 18-game winning streak.
Not only has City looked sharp in league play, but no team in the Champions League has had an answer for them either. Good luck to Monchengladbach. They're going to need it.
2. Kevin De Bruyne is back and fully fit for Man City
MCFC fans received quite the scare when Kevin De Bruyne suffered a hamstring injury in January. Yet, he worked overtime to get himself fit and is already back on the pitch for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. There's no overstating just how important De Bruyne is for this team.
The Belgian is without question one of the best midfielders in the world. His passing is downright impressive. He'll be ready to dice up the Monchengladbach defense on Wednesday.
1. Manchester City is stronger all across the board
Again, no disrespect to Monchengladbach, but they're lucky to even be in the Round of 16. The club has looked average this year even in the Bundesliga, as they sit in eighth place of the table. Meanwhile for Man City, they're at the top of the English Premier League, the best competition in the world.
With stars like De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan, Joao Cancelo, Raheem Sterling and others, the EPL powerhouse will be ready to cruise to a victory on Wednesday. This one could get out of hand early on.
