Group C of this year’s Champions League looked incredibly easy to predict at first glance: Man City and Barcelona advancing, Borussia Monchengladbach and Celtic fighting for 3rd place.
One single surprise from the English giants, the 3-3 draw against Celtic, was enough to turn the group upside-down and give the German team hopes – although small ones. Do they have what it takes to qualify?

Betting Odds At Online Football Betting Sites
FT Result: Monchengladbach 4.75 or 15/4 Draw 4.10 or 31/10 Man City 1.75 or 3/4
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.57 or 4/7 Under 2.35 or 27/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.57 or 4/7 No 2.25 or 5/4
In order to qualify, they need to finish with more points than City, meaning: they must win their direct game and get more points in their next game against Barcelona than City get against Celtic at home.
They are also focusing much more on the Bundesliga at the moment, where the team isn’t playing anywhere near its full potential. Moreover, if Celtic also fails to get more than 2 points from the games against the giants, 3rd place is theirs.
We’ve said all this to highlight that Gladbach won’t necessarily be very interested in this game – since a win wouldn’t really change anything.
On the other hand, City has slowly started to play better football again, especially if we consider their great 3-1 home win against Barcelona.
They’ve trashed Gladbach 4-0 in the previous encounter between the two teams and will come to Germany with a victory on their minds. Given the poor form of their opponents, they don’t even need to be at their best in order to win.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City Betting Tips
That being said, we fancy a City away win on Wednesday. The English team might even win by more than one goal, but a solo away win has great odds. Go for an X2 bet if you want a safer alternative.
Also, we believe we will see quite a few goals in the game, so over 2,5 goals is another good idea. Combine the last idea with a City win, and you’ve also got your high-odd bet of the day: Man City and over 2,5 goals.

Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize?

Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow.

Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group.
