RB Leipzig vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Leipzig has been in excellent form lately, having drawn with Bayern Munich in the previous round. However, this team cannot be called an outsider in the match against the European champions. At the season opener in the Champions League, Leipzig beat Young Boys in Switzerland and equalized with Manchester City, who beat the Serbian champions with the same result. In the match against Bayern, Leipzig had a two-goal advantage, but was unable to save it. Lois Openda is a guy who causes a lot of problems to the opponent on the left side. He is fast and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Xaver Schlager plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Timo Werner (Back trouble), Dani Olmo (Knee Injury), El Chadaille Bitshiabu (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury) and Willi Orbán (Torn knee ligament) are unavailable for RB Leipzig coach Marco Rose.
Manchester City have lost their last two away games, in the EFL Cup against Newcastle and in the Premier League against Wolverhampton, and Guardiola’s side appear to be struggling away from home. Haaland scored only 1 goal in the previous 4 matches, which is the reason for the failure in the previous 7 days. However, Manchester City is the main favorite to take first place in the group. Last season at this stadium it was 1-1 while City in England achieved one of the most convincing victories of the season 7-0. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Josko Guardiol arrived as the biggest reinforcement in the transfer window for as much as 90 million, he is one of the best defenders in the world. Pep Guardiola seeks responsibility in every game, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is, the players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has not got a full squad to pick from. John Stones (Hip Injury), Zack Steffen (Knee Surgery) and Kevin De Bruyne (Muscle partial avulsion) are not able to play.
