Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City plays the ball during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match between Manchester City and Borussia Moenchengladbach at Puskas Arena on March 16, 2021 in Budapest, Hungary.

Manchester City moved into the Champions League quarter-finals for a fourth successive season by completing a comprehensive aggregate victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Leading 2-0 after the first leg, the Premier League leaders extended their overall advantage after only 12 minutes of the last-16 second-leg tie through Kevin de Bruyne's excellent 20-yard left-footed strike.

Six minutes later, City scored again as Ilkay Gundogan slotted past goalkeeper Yann Sommer following a fine run and pass from Phil Foden, with the goal completing a 4-0 aggregate win.

Both matches in this tie were played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest because of coronavirus restrictions.

The draw for the quarter-finals is at 11:00 GMT on Friday.
