Key quotes

Andre Schubert (Monchengladbach caretaker coach): "Manchester City are a very good side with outstanding players, but for me, they are not an overwhelmingly superior side. We are not awe-struck. We will try to stifle their qualities and show ours. Their recent defeats are nothing to do with this game. This is just about the Champions League."

Manuel Pellegrini: “I expect a very good game against a very big club. We want to recover the points we dropped at home, but we must play with a very high quality. It is not a final but it is a very important game for us.” 

Kevin De Bruyne: “It is nice to score goals but I prefer to win to be honest. We need to get the results and then we see what happens in the other games.”
