Pep Guardiola’s men punished German side, Borussia Monchengladbach, with a goal from Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva to win 2-0 in their first leg away tie in Last-16 of UEFA Champions League. This result confirms their 19th consecutive win in all competitions to keep their quadruple dream alive.
Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva scored the first goal of the match from a Joao Cancelo cross after a defensive mistake from Borussia Monchengladbach in the 29th minute of the match. Gabriel Jesus doubled the lead with another header after meeting a cross from the Portuguese after 20 minutes into the second half.
Premier League leaders controlled the match with the only frustration of the game for Man City being the overall lack of clear-cut chances, but their defence continued their impressive form this season by giving the Bundesliga side little time on the ball.
Manchester City is currently competing for four different titles this year which includes the Carabao Cup final in April, Premier League, FA Cup, and the Champions League, which they have never won in their history.
