Follow all the action as Manchester City aim to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-finals when they take on Borussia Monchengladbach tonight.

Pep Guardiola’s side boast a commanding 2-0 lead from the first leg, when Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus scored either side of the break in Budapest. City’s winning streak has finally come to an end since then, suffering defeat against rivals Manchester United, however, they have recovered quickly with victories over Southampton and Fulham to put one hand on the Premier League title.

City remain in contention for a famous quadruple this season, but the Champions League has proven elusive during Guardiola’s otherwise garlanded tenure, and the head coach played down their chances of sweeping all the honours earlier this week. “Four titles is a utopia,” he said. “It never happened before and I think it’s never going to happen. We just think about this one, then the next one at Goodison Park, then the international break.” It would certainly take something momentous, though, for Monchengladbach to deny City a place in the last eight, with the Bundesliga side desperately short of momentum, having lost their last six games in all competitions.
