Man City land UCL feats with Monchengladbach win

All the records set as Man City book UCL quarter-final berth with Monchengladbach win

March 16, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Citizens cruised to the quarter-final of the competition by securing a 4-0 aggregate win over their German opponent.

Manchester City made their way into Friday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw after Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach. Thanks to goals by Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne, the Citizens secured a 4-0 aggregate win over their German counterparts to book a place in the last-eight stage, attaining a number of milestones in the process.

The Premier League leaders established their dominance by scoring two goals in quick succession; the first of which was a thunderous strike by De Bruyne from outside Monchengladbach's penalty box. Six minutes later, Phil Foden drove his way through the defense of the visitors to set up Gundogan for his 15th goal of the season. The midfielder is now the now the top scoring German player within the top five European leagues across all competitions in 2020-21.

For Manchester City, the two goals scored in the night's encounter meant that they are only the second club in history of English top-flight football to have scored 100 goals in each of the last eight seasons. Only Manchester United (nine seasons between 2004-05 and 2012-13) have had a longer run of consecutive 100+ goal seasons among the English top-flight teams.

With Monchengladbach failing to score at the Etihad, City became the third team in the history of the Champions League to keep seven clean sheets, after AC Milan (seven ending in April 2005) and Arsenal (10 ending in April 2006). They have so far conceded only once in eight UEFA Champions League matches this season, the joint-fewest managed by any club after eight games in a single season in the competition, along with Ajax in 1995-96 (also 1 in 8).
