    Manchester City travel to Sunderland in the League Cup tonight, while Borussia Monchengladbach and Sevilla will look to climb the table on Wednesday

    Sunderland vs Manchester City, League Cup 3rd Round

    Manchester City will look to bounce back from two successive defeats and get their League Cup campaign off to a successful start when they meet Sunderland in the competition’s Third Round at the Stadium of Light this evening.

    A disappointing week saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men suffer back-to-back home reverses against Juventus and West Ham but they will travel to the north east of England confident of rediscovering their winning touch against a Sunderland side who currently prop up the Barclays Premier League.

    Borussia Monchengladbach vs Augsburg, Bundesliga

    Over in Germany, Bundesliga basement club Borussia Mönchengladbach begin life without Lucien Favre with a home game against fellow strugglers Augsburg on Wednesday evening.

    Saturday’s defeat away to Cologne spelled the end of the road for the Swiss coach, whose resignation was confirmed on Sunday evening, and their task of reversing the slide of five consecutive league defeats begins when bottom meets 14th tomorrow night.

    With just four points separating the sides, managerless Monchengladbach will be viewing the fixture as the perfect opportunity to prevent being cut adrift at this early stage of the campaign. 

    Las Palmas vs Sevilla, La Liga

    After seeing their slow start to the 2015/16 campaign continue with a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of high-flying Celta Vigo on Sunday, Unai Emery’s men will be looking to climb off the foot of the table when they travel to the Canary Islands to face Las Palmas on Wednesday night.

    The injury-hit Andalusians have claimed just two points from their opening league fixtures but know a first La Liga win of the season would take them above their hosts – also on two points – and out of the relegation zone.

    Former Juventus frontman Fernando Llorente will be pushing for a place in the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score his first goal for the club last weekend.
