Man City vs RB Leipzig Tips


Manchester City will look to carry their impressive domestic form to Europe when they start their UEFA Champions League campaign against RB Leipzig. This Group A match will be played at the City of Manchester Stadium on Thursday evening Australian time.

I am backing Manchester City to continue with how they have been doing domestically. Pep Guardiola’s side has been very impressive with their defence and are likely to keep a clean sheet as well. Leipzig’s troubles are likely to continue as they come to Manchester, where they lost 5-0 last season in the Champions League.

Head to Head


This is the first time that Manchester City and RB Leipzig are about to face each other.

Man City Form


Manchester City defeated Leicester City 1-0 in the Premier League last weekend. That makes it three wins in a row for Man City with all three wins coming with a clean sheet.

Pep Guardiola’s side has won seven of their last eight Champions League matches with four wins coming with a clean sheet.

City are equally strong at home, winning six of their last seven Champions League home matches.

Man City Team News


Zack Steffen is the only absentee for Man City with Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne back to being fully fit. Benjamin Mendy remains out of contention after being remanded in custody.

RB Leipzig Form


RB Leipzig are coming off a demoralising 4-1 loss to Bayern Munich at the weekend. That makes it three losses in four matches in Bundesliga for Leipzig.

Leipzig have happy memories of last season, coming through a group that had Manchester United and PSG. However, they crashed out losing 2-0 in both legs to Liverpool.

RB Leipzig Team News


RB Leipzig are likely to miss Marcelo Saracchi as he rehabilitates from a ligament tear. Marcel Halstenberg is another notable absentee as Angelino built up his fitness last weekend against Bayern Munich.

Verdict

Manchester City have been impressive in the Premier League after starting with a loss on the opening weekend. As they look to build up on their European ambitions, Pep Guardiola’s side will try for a win in the Champions League. Leipzig’s poor form makes City heavy favourites to win this.

I am backing Manchester City to keep a clean sheet in this UEFA Champions League match. Leipzig have struggled this season and could be put to task by an aggressive City team.
