Manchester City strolled into the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the fourth straight season after a 2-0 win over Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday that completed a 4-0 aggregate victory.
De Bruyne blasted City ahead in the 12th minute with an unstoppable left-footed drive into the top corner after being set up by Riyad Mahrez -- the team's 100th goal in all competitions so far this season.
Gladbach, who began their Champions League campaign with such promise, have hit an awful run of form since coach Marco Rose announced he would leave the club to join Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season and this was their seventh straight loss in all competitions.
