Borussia MG v Manchester City

Manchester City will be looking for a return to form when they visit Borussia MG in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Citizens have suffered a severe drop in form of late, losing three of their last four games in all competitions, including back-to-back losses in the Premier League.

They also fell to a defeat in their Group D opener in Europe's elite club competition after a 2-1 reverse to Juventus on matchday one.

Manuel Pellegrini's men come into the match on the back of a shocking 4-1 defeat to Tottenham at the weekend and have several injury concerns.

City captain Vincent Kompany (illness), Joe Hart (back) and Yaya Toure (hamstring) are all doubts for the midweek clash, having either missed or withdrawn from the game against Spurs.

Eliaquim Mangala, David Silva and Wilfried Bony are unlikely to feature, while Fabian Delph (hamstring) and Gael Clichy (ankle) are also out.

Borussia MG, meanwhile, have experienced a resurgence of late, winning consecutive league games after losing their opening five Bundesliga outings.

Gladbach caretaker boss Andre Schubert will be feeling confident after righting the ship somewhat after replacing Lucien Favre, who resigned after the disastrous start.

Schubert, though, will be without Martin Stranzl, who remains sidelined with a fractured eye socket, while Tony Jantschke is a doubt with a thigh problem.
