A very tough task for Leipzig 

After three defeats in a row, RB Leipzig got their act together and grabbed four points from their next two games in Group A. With that recovery, the Red Bulls have given themselves with a chance to play in the Europa League after missing out on a spot in the next phase of the Champions League. However, they have a huge hurdle to overcome to realize that. In fact, Leipzig need to beat City or hope that PSG beats Brugge to succeed this evening.

A glance at Leipzig’s recent form shows that Red Bull have been blowing hot and cold. To demonstrate, the German side had a fine draw with PSG in the UCL and beat Dortmund, however, three back-to-back defeats in the Bundesliga before this match will not do Leipzig’s confidence any favors. Hence, coach Achim Beierlorzer – who has stepped in to replace recently fired boss Jesse Marsch – has to find a way for his players to perform at their very best.

Manchester City to maintain their winning streak

Manchester City settled Group A’s first spot battle by beating PSG in the last round. As a result, the Citizens have now won their last seven games in all competitions. Additionally, City are undefeated in their last six away games, winning five and drawing one. Coupled with solid defensive performances which saw Guardiola’s side concede just 0.75 goals per match on average in the process.

Obviously, Guardiola wants his teams to have full control of the games they play and that was the case against PSG where the Citizens enjoyed 55% of ball possession. City came so close to winning the Champions League last season, though they lost in their first ever final to English rivals Chelsea. Hence, Guardiola’s quest to win the Champions League with a team other than Barcelona still continues. 

Red Bull Leipzig vs Manchester City Prediction

This match’s outcome really depends on whether Manchester City will field a full-strength team. Certainly, Guardiola like many other coaches would prefer to rest some of his key players ahead of a busy domestic schedule. 

As a result, Leipzig might feel they have a chance to grab at least a point and hope that PSG doesn’t lose to Brugge! Still, the bookmakers are favoring City to win paying 2.03. And that is no surprise with the Citizens’ recent form.

However, we prefer to back a double chance outcome since we won’t know Guardiola’s lineup until just before the game. Moreover, the goals market shows that the bookies are expecting a high-scoring game considering there were nine goals in the first match.
