Manchester City kept their hopes of winning a quadruple this season after making it to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21 season.
Pep Guardiola's side repeated their first-leg heroics at the Puskas Arena in Budapest against Gladbach. They won the round of 16 two-legged clash on a 4-0 aggregate score.
City are the in-form side and carry maximum threat.
How did the match pan out?
Man City extended their overall advantage after only 12 minutes of the last-16 second-leg tie through Kevin de Bruyne, who scored from an excellent 20-yard left-footed strike.
Six minutes later, City went 2-0 up after Ilkay Gundogan slotted past Gladbach goal-keeper Yann Sommer following a fine run and pass from Phil Foden.
