EFIWE HIGHLIGHT: Borussia Monchengladbach 1 - 1 Manchester City | Download UCL Goals Highlights 2016/2017


The Catalan started with what he hoped would be a ‘fluid’ system and he certainly kept his players on their toes by moving them around the pitch in several different formations
Manchester City are through to the last 16 of the Champions League after Pep Guardiola rolled out the full gamut of tactical tweaks in an innovative 1-1 draw at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Guardiola is no stranger to switching his team around according to circumstance but he was especially creative on his return to Germany, playing at least four different defensive lines (one of which looked like a diamond), using four different right-backs (including Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne) and asking the versatile Fernandinho to tie everything together, whether as a midfielder, centre-back or something between the two.
In truth, Guardiola probably caused a little too much confusion early on after vowing to start with a “fluid” system that would, it was hoped, switch effortlessly between a back three and a back four.
But, in reality, City’s own players looked as baffled as anybody and Gladbach deservedly took the lead when Raffael fired home.

Guardiola went back to a four-man defensive line after that but his side’s passing was often sloppy and played into the hosts’ hands.
