90'

HUGE CHANCE!

Wolf has one last chance to get a goal for Gladbach in the final seconds as he races through on goal chasing a loose ball. He reaches the ball first and gets a shot away ahead of Ederson, but the Brazilian makes a big save to keep it out.
90'

ADDED TIME!

We'll have three minutes of time added on at the end of this one.
87'

HOFMANN TAKES A KNOCK

The Gladbach midfielder has had to come off in the final minutes after taking a knock to his left leg in that challenge from Cancelo. Hopefully it's nothing serious for him.

NO PENALTY

Hofmann races into the City area on the break and cuts inside past Cancelo, going down under the defender's challenge. No penalty is given and after a check from VAR the decision stands.
82'

MAHREZ ON TARGET

Torres is on the end of Gündogan's pass forward, and slots Mahrez in on goal. He's at a tight angle at the near post though and Sommer closest it further to make a comfortable save in front of his near post.

FODEN FIRES OVER

Gündogan chests down Cancelo's ball into the box and Foden can get a shot away on the volley, but he slices this one over Sommer and the Gladbach goal.
75'

SHOT BLOCKED

Neuhaus does well to pick a pass to Hofmann in space. He turns and has options ahead of him with Thuram, Embolo and Lazaro up the pitch but takes too long in his decision-making and his shot, in the end, is blocked away.

GLADBACH STILL PUSHING

Thuram is on and asking for the ball whenever he can get it. But the Frenchman is being harried by the City defence when he does look to bring the ball forward, and it's the same story for Gladbach who have yet to have a shot on target.

CITY DOUBLE THEIR LEAD

It's a very similar move to that which opened the scoring for City as Cancelo curls a cross to the back post of the Gladbach area where Silva is waiting. This time he heads the ball across goal into the middle and Jesus is on hand to place it past Sommer.

HUGE CHANCE!

Pressing does the job again and Zakaria is played in down the right. His cross into the middle meets Plea, and he meets the ball with a backheel in mid-air, but his effort bounces just wide of goal. What a finish that would have been!
60'

GOOD CHANCE!

Zakaria does fantastically to chase down Rodri as he runs back to reach a loose ball in his own half and win the ball back. He has Plea ahead of him in between two defenders, but his pass is hit too hard and runs through for Ederson. A great chance there for Gladbach with an opening in front of them.
59'

PRESSING WELL

The Foals have started their defensive work well in this second half. Keeping City in possession in their own defence, and harrying the forwards once they get on the ball. What's still lacking is attacking work of their own.
54'

ELVEDI RECOVERS!

A huge piece of defensive work from the Swiss defender after a mistake from Bensebaini. Under pressure, the left-back's back-pass finds Jesus instead of Sommer and the Brazilian races at goal. Elvedi chases him down though and slides across to make the block just as he was about to pull the trigger.
48'

PLEA THROUGH THE MIDDLE

The Frenchman had been on the left flank in the first half, with Stindl playing through the middle. But at the start of the second half, Plea and his captain have swapped positions. Looking to get Plea on the ball more and more.
46'

BACK UNDERWAY!

The ball is rolling again for the second half here in Hungary with no changes to either side.

GLADBACH BEHIND

The Foals haven't been able to get into a gallop in this first half with City keeping them at bay through the first '45. Gladbach's defending has been solid for the most part, but one outstanding cross from Cancelo found Silva in an inch of space behind Elvedi to give the Premier League side the lead. As long as the scoreline stays like this, Rose will know his side have a chance.
Half-time
42'

APPROACHING THE BREAK

Gladbach are ending the first half on the back foot with City pressing for a second goal. Sommer hasn't had a save to make so far, but the defence in front of him have made several key interceptions and blocks at the back.
37'

KNOCK FOR WALKER

The City right-back took a knock in a challenge with Bensebaini and is going to look to continue here with time ticking on in the first half.
33'

STAYING PATIENT

Gladbach have responded well to going behind, keeping the ball well and looking to bring City out of position to then find their way forward. It's not been easy to unlock space through this City team in the first half, though. But Gladbach will keep their confidence high.
29'

CITY LEAD THROUGH SILVA

A fantastic cross from the left corner of the edge of Gladbach's box from Cancelo finds Silva at the back post, in behind Elvedi, who is perfectly placed to head home back across goal by Sommer. A moment of lapse in concentration and Gladbach are behind.
29'

Bernardo Silva

GOAL!

GOOD PHASE FOR THE FOALS

Gladbach have become more and more comfortable in this game. Ginter and Elvedi have been comfortable on the ball in the back, but they have yet to have an attempt on goal. Stindl and Plea have been trying to get in behind, but it's been easier said than done in this tactical battle.

WATCHING CAREFULLY

Both sides have had half-chances, but defensive strength is on show so far in Budapest with both teams doing fantastic work at the back.
16'

LAST DITCH DEFENDING

City come forward in numbers with Jesus on the end of Rodri's touch forward after a clearance from Elvedi. He touches it wide to Sterling, but neither of them can work a shot on goal with Gladbach's defence crowding them out in the end.
15'

WARMING UP

Gladbach are beginning to get on the ball themselves, finding space through the City midfield and with a high press, have been winning the ball back in positions high up the pitch. It's been a slower start from both sides, figuring each other out.
10'

ON THE BALL

City are controlling the early possession here, with Gladbach doing well to keep the English side out of their penalty area so far. But Rose will want his side to get on the ball themselves here.
7'

EARLY SAVE

City play a corner short to the edge of the Gladbach box and it's Foden who controls before firing a low shot at goal. It's the first task of the night for Sommer and he saves with ease.
3'

GLADBACH SET UP

This is how the Foals are set up in the early stages: Sommer - Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini - Neuhaus, Kramer, Zakaria - Hofmann, Stindl (c), Plea

HERE WE GO!

The ball is rolling in Budapest with Man City getting the game underway.

MOMENTS AWAY

The players are out on the pitch in Budapest and we're just moments away from kick-off now as the Champions League music rings around. Gladbach's first knockout game in this competition, will they make it a memorable one?

BUNDESLIGA SIDES SO FAR

Gladbach are the fourth and final Bundesliga side to play their last 16 first leg in the Champions League. Leipzig fell to a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, while there were wins for both Dortmund and Bayern, 3-2 against Sevilla and 4-1 against Lazio respectively. The Foals will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Dortmund and Bayern, of course, give themselves something to play for in the second leg - City's home leg.

GUARDIOLA: "I RESPECT GERMAN TEAMS"

"I respect German teams in the competition because I know how strong they are," former Bayern Munich coach Guardiola said in his pre-match press conference. "German teams are always so dangerous when the game is open. They arrive with a lot of players in the box. They make good buildup, short passes and are attractive. They are fast and make good transitions. In the last 16, all the teams deserve respect and hopefully, we can get respect too."

THE HISTORY BETWEEN THEM

Gladbach and Man City have met four times in the Champions League having come up against each other in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 group stages. The Foals remain without a win against the English side (D1, L3), but have only failed to score once against them, in a 4-0 loss that included a Sergio Agüero hat-trick.

THREE-MAN DEFENCE?

We'll have to see exactly how Gladbach line-up this evening but it could be that Rose has decided to switch things up and put Zakaria in the middle of a three-man defence alongside Elvedi and Ginter. It would see Stindl and Plea lead the attack, with Hofmann and Neuhaus in attacking midfield support.

ATTACK VS. ATTACK!

Tonight's game sees two strong attacking sides go head-to-head. Gladbach have only failed to score in two of their last 29 games in all competitions, while Man City have scored two goals or more in 14 of their last 17 games.

THURAM EXCLUSIVE!

He's waiting on the bench tonight, but Marcus Thuram has been the star of Gladbach's Champions League campaign so far. bundesliga.com caught up with the Frenchman to discuss facing City, playing for France and much more. Read it on the website or in the app.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

Bensebaini has reclaimed the left-back berth from Wendt since making his return from illness at the turn of the year, but head coach Rose - who will take charge of Dortmund next season - had a decision to make in central midfield where Zakaria was vying for Kramer's place in the starting line-up. In the end, he has selected both with Neuhaus potentially in a more advanced role.

MAN CITY TEAM NEWS

Former Nuremberg and Dortmund midfielder Gündogan starts after recently recovering from a groin strain. Ex-Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg playmaker De Bruyne has also recovered from a hamstring injury but is on the bench. Foden is in midfield, while Silva supports Jesus in attack alongside Sterling. Laporte has also come in ahead of Stones in defence.
