National player Ilkay Gündogan from Manchester City has warned of the strengths of the Bundesliga club before the first leg of the first leg in the Champions League against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
“Gladbach is always dangerous. On a good day they can beat any opponent,” said Gündogan before the duel on Wednesday (9:00 pm live on DAZN) in Budapest.
Although Borussia only scored two points in four league games recently, Gündogan warned against underestimating the five-time German champions: “Gladbach has the necessary quality of players to play good and successful football. They are difficult to beat on a good day. “
After 18 competitive games in a row, the Premier League leaders are bursting with self-confidence. “We know how good we can be. And we know what we have to do. It’s up to us,” said Gündogan, who justified the recipe for success with the “mixture of the right tactics, the quality of the players and the mentality” .
Team manager Pep Guardiola also relies on the strength of his team. “We have to push our game on them,” said the former Bayern coach. Guardiola also emphasized “that he had a lot of respect for German teams in this competition”.
