RB Leipzig vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Leipzig did well to make it this far following a nightmare start in Group F, being beaten 4-1 at home to Shakhtar Donetsk and then losing 2-0 at Real Madrid. Domenico Tedesco was replaced by Marco Rose in between those defeats, and the former Salzburg, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Borussia Dortmund boss led a spirited revival. Back-to-back 3-1 and 2-0 victories over Celtic helped to boost morale before Real Madrid was seen off 3-2 at Red Bull Arena. Leipzig couldn’t quite overhaul the Spanish giants at the top of the table but gaining revenge over Shakhtar with a 4-0 romp in Warsaw enhanced the view that they are dangerous opponents at this stage. Christopher Nkunku showed why he is attracting interest from a number of wealthy suitors by bagging three goals in those wins and returning from a three-month injury over the weekend. Dominik Szoboszlai is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the selector for the starting lineup.
Pep Guardiola is searching for that special Champions League medal he has been lacking since taking over the Manchester City hot seat. The Spanish tactician has been given massive amounts of funds over the years to build a special team, and not many people will deny him that fact. His newest addition, Erling Haaland, has taken the Premier League by storm, and he will know very well how to play Leipzig as he faced them during his Borussia Dortmund days. It’s hard to go against Erling Haaland on any given day. He had trouble with injuries when with Borussia Dortmund, but some things have changed with the way he approaches his career since joining Man City. He transformed his diet, physical preparation, and mindset. Those actions were noticeable immediately as he scored 21 league goals in his first 15 league appearances. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Jack Grealish is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
