With goals scored in less than 20 minutes, Manchester City qualified easily to the quarterfinals of the European Champions League. This Tuesday, he scored 2-0 at Borussia Mönchengladbach, at the Puskàs Arena in Budapest, in the second leg of the round of 16. And by repeating the result, Manchester City reached 101 goals scored in 45 official matches in the 2020/2021 season.
Just as it had happened in the first confrontation, this Tuesday’s duel was smooth for City, which dominated it from the control of ball possession, led by Cancelo and De Bruyne. The English team was sovereign in the initial stage, even though Mönchengladbach was dangerous in some offensive actions, mainly with Embolo, who finished with danger twice, in the 7th minute, when the score was still 0-0, and in the 40th.
Manchester City’s opponents in the quarterfinals will be known next Friday, in a draw. Now, he will try to overcome this barrier, because in the last three seasons he stopped exactly at that stage of the Champions League. In order not to repeat the disappointment, the team relies on a campaign so far practically perfect: 7 wins, 1 draw and only 1 goal conceded, right on the debut.
