Man City vs RB Leipzig: The Quick Hits before the encounter

Love gives a gig


  • Man City will secure qualification into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with victory over RB Leipzig, according to the Opta pre-match prediction.
  • The win would equal Arsenal’s record of 24 successive home matches unbeaten in the competition, the most by an English club.
  • It looks set to be a fifth successive UCL knockout stage game without a win for the Germans.


Match Preview

Of the four UEFA Champions League matchups this week, Man City versus RB Leipzig is the most evenly poised heading into the second leg of their round of 16 clash, following their 1-1 draw last month.

Marco Rose must be sick of the sight of Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages. This will be his fourth-such match in the competition, with the previous three all coming against City. He was formerly in charge of Borussia Mönchengladbach when they were eliminated by the club in the last 16 in 2020-21.

His hopes of success this time around won’t be helped by the injury sustained by Christopher Nkunku. The French forward has scored 10 goals across this last 12 starts in the competition, including a hat-trick the last time the two sides faced off at the Etihad Stadium in September 2021. Whether he will be able to shake off the thigh injury that kept him out of the weekend’s action is looking less and less likely.

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland will be hoping to build upon the home form in the Champions League that has made him such a threat. He’s scored 17 goals in 11 home matches, scoring at least two goals in seven of them with an average strike rate of a goal every 49 minutes.

.

And one issue for Leipzig is that England hasn’t proved a welcome trip for them in recent times. Their last three such away games in the competition have resulted in defeats and resounding ones at that, conceding 13 goals in the process.

Add in that Manchester City are unbeaten across their 23 home matches in the competition, winning 21 of them, and it sounds like a recipe for disaster. But City have won just one of their last four matches (D2 L1) against German opponents in the competition, having won nine consecutively previously. And the first leg only added to those recent woes.
