Florian Neuhaus: Gladbach must be braver against Man City

Florian Neuhaus has implored Borussia Monchengladbach to be 'braver' against Manchester City.

The German outfit suffered a 2-0 loss in the first leg, which counted as a home match despite the game being played in Budapest.

Gladbach struggled to threaten City, and Neuhaus wants to see his side take more chances in the second leg.

"We wanted to be courageous with our limited chances and I felt we did that well at times," Neuhaus told DAZN.

"City played with a very high line and if we'd been better with the final ball in behind, there might have been more in it for us. We have to be braver in the second leg.

"Manchester City were really good in possession, which meant we did a lot of running tonight. We had the odd chance in transition here and there but didn't execute them cleanly."
