Borussia Monchengladbach v Man City: Team news, stats and TV coverage

Permutations

Man City will qualify with a victory at Monchengladbach.

A draw on Wednesday for Man City would put Monchengladbach out of the running for qualification, but if Celtic were to win their remaining two games against Barcelona and the Blues - they would progress if Man City only pick up a point in Germany.

Barcelona would finish top if they are victorious and Man City don’t win.

For Celtic to keep their hopes of progression alive, they must beat Barca and hope City do not win.

As always, we’ll have all the build-up, including comments from Pep Guardiola’s press conference and coverage of pre-match training, live commentary and post-match reaction – all available on ManCity.com and @ManCity Twitter.
