Marco Rose

knows that his men should play with all their hearts if they want to have a chance against the Premier League giants.

"When you're Borussia Monchengladbach and you're playing a Champions League last-16 match against Manchester City, you can't really lose,"

Rose told the media


"It's basically just a big thing for the club to be playing in the Champions League and we have always said that we want to prove ourselves and show what we can do. 

"We've done that really well so far. The lads should enjoy the game, that's part of the occasion. But they also have to be ready to show what they can do. 

"Above all, it's about defending well and playing with courage. If there's one thing that City really don't like, then it's not having the ball."

Rose thinks that motivation is the most important element in facing a big team like Manchester City.

"I don't think that I need to motivate the lads in any way. They've earned this evening,"

Rose added


"I hope that the players reflect again on what they have already achieved in the group stage and that they approach this game with passion and courage, but also a willingness to suffer.

"We will try to always make inroads going forward. If my team plays to the best of their ability, then a good result is absolutely possible."
