Manchester City must do its part in order to avoid facing one of Europe’s heavy-hitters in the next round of the UEFA Champions League.

Borussia Monchengladbach visits Manchester City on Tuesday at The Etihad Stadium in the teams’ sixth, and final, Group D game. Having already secured a spot in the Round of 16, Manchester City can top the group with a win and some help: Sevilla also must beat Juventus in the other Group D finale.¬†Borussia Monchengladbach can ensure a third-place finish with a victory in England.

Manchester City has struggled in the absence of injured captain Vincent Kompany. The Belgian center back hasn’t recovered from a calf injury in time to face Borussia Monchengladbach.¬†Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi will look to secure Manchester City’s defense from the middle.

Borussia Monchengladbach’s win over Bayern Munich on Saturday has given it a fresh injection of confidence. We’ll watch to see whether it has enough momentum to defeat Manchester City.

When: Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 2:45 p.m. ET
