Man City vs RB Leipzig predicted lineups & Preview
After dominating German opposition in nine straight UEFA Champions League games, Manchester City has now won just one of their past four games (D2 L1), with their lone loss during this stretch occurring versus RB Leipzig in the previous campaign.
In their last three away games against English teams in this tournament, RB Leipzig have dropped each of their previous three games, giving up a total of 13 goals, after defeating Tottenham Hotspur on the road among the UEFA Champions League’s previous 16 encounters in 2019–20 (4.3 per game).
Manchester City has defeated German teams in each of their past nine UEFA Champions League games with the home team designation, winning each game while scoring at least two goals.
A 2013–14 FC Bayern München team under Pep Guardiola was the last German team to triumph against Manchester City on the road. This is the best-undefeated streak in the tournament for RB Leipzig since a seven-game run in 2019–20 just before they entered the semi-finals (W4 D1). They are unbeaten in five games throughout the UEFA Champions League (W4 D1).
Throughout the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City has won 21 of their last 23 home games to remain unbeaten. If they win this game without losing, they would tie Arsenal’s mark for the longest home undefeated streak by an English team in the UEFA Champions League (24 matches between September 2004 and April 2009).
Going into this fixture against RB Leipzig, Manchester City has a win probability of 70%, whereas RB Leipzig has a win probability of 15%.
