Borussia Monchengladbach will be hoping to bounce back against Manchester City later this week after suffering a 3-0 defeat against Sevilla in their Champions League opener and their manager claimed that his side would never lose their concentration even in the event of them conceding an early goal.

Andre Schubert inherited the hot-seat from Lucien Favre after the Swiss mastermind submitted his resignation letter earlier this month, and has since registered two victories in a trot. When quizzed about the prospect of hosting the Premier League juggernauts on Wednesday night, he branded the match as a great challenge but seemed rather confident as he even managed to pull off a joke.

a What do we do if we concede early? The answer: nothing a we have to simply keep playing and focus on playing our game,a Andre Schubert told their official website.

a We need to concentrate on the game and what is about to happen. For example, if the referee gives a penalty then we wona t try and persuade him otherwise. We will pick ourselves up and keep playing our football.

a We are, of course, looking forward to the match as it will be a great challenge. We want to try and get something on Wednesday and I am unbeaten against Manchester City. We drew 1-1 against their youth side with our U23s in the Premier League International Cup most recently.a

The Borussians can be expected to upset the Citizens as the latter have hit a bad patch of form lately, after a scintillating start to their campaign. In addition, Manuel Pellegrini can only hope for a decent result as he would be forced to land his squad without injured stalwarts in Yaya Toure, David Silva and Vincent Kompany, who are hands-down the backbone of the team.
