The first leg was played in the Hungarian capital due to COVID-19 travel restrictions in Germany.

Bernardo Silva scored once and set up another as Manchester City eased to a 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach in their Champions League last 16 first leg on Wednesday.

City, who extended their winning run to 19 games in all competitions, are unbeaten in their last 26 matches and have a huge advantage for the March 16 return leg in Manchester after Silva headed in a pinpoint Joao Cancelo cross in the 29th minute to put them in front.

The Portuguese midfielder then headed on another Cancelo cross in the 65th minute for Gabriel Jesus to stab in.

Striker Sergio Aguero came on as a substitute after a long absence from Pep Guardiola’s team, who have won their last 12 away games in all competitions, setting a new record for an English top-flight side.
