Manchester City dominate Borussia Monchengladbach for two-goal lead in Champions League knockout
It is not just the incredible number of victories that Manchester City are achieving at present but the compelling manner of them that will soon lead to talk that they can claim an unprecedented quadruple this campaign.
Win number 19 in all competitions from Europe’s form team came as they overwhelmed Borussia Monchengladbach in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie which should make their passage into the quarter-finals routine.
A League Cup final is secured, they are running away with the Premier League, they are in the last eight of the FA Cup but it is this competition that maybe matters most of all to Pep Guardiola and the City hierarchy. And Europe will have taken notice of this performance.
The holders Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain – last season’s beaten finalists – Liverpool, Chelsea, possibly even another team, might bring it to a halt but it will take some effort to defeat City on this unrelenting form.
