Top Champions League predictions for Monchengladbach vs. Manchester City
The model is leaning under 3.5 goals in Wednesday's matchup between Monchengladbach and Manchester City. Opponents have found it difficult to score against Manchester City this season, as the Premier League leaders have allowed only 15 goals in 25 league matches and just one in six 2020-21 UEFA Champions League games.
Manchester City posted five consecutive clean sheets in the group stage after recording a 3-1 victory over Porto in its opener. Manchester City has yielded fewer than two goals in every match during its 18-game unbeaten streak after falling 2-0 against Tottenham on Nov. 21.

The Bundesliga team has recorded a total of two goals over its last three contests and has produced more than a pair just once in its past eight outings. Lars Stindl leads Monchengladbach with 13 goals but has scored only once in his last seven contests, which is one of the reasons the model is leaning toward the under on Wednesday.
