RB Leipzig - Manchester City Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

RB Leipzig - Manchester City prediction

This is one of the most exciting round of 16 pairings in this year's Champions League.

RB Leipzig and Manchester City played two matches against each other in this same tournament in the group stage in autumn 2021.

Then they exchanged one home win each. A total of 12 goals were scored in both matches.

Today, however, the reality is different.

The Citizens are absolute favorites both in this first leg and for the ultimate winner of the clash.

Although the Bulls have been playing solid football the past few weeks.

On the other hand, Man City slipped up this weekend failing to win in Nottingham.

And so it allowed Arsenal to once again regain their advantage in the Premier League standings.

However, the Champions League is Pep Guardiola's biggest concern. As the title in this tournament has eluded him for so many years now.

I am deeply convinced that he and his Citizens will approach this match as seriously as possible and win today.

The last two meetings in which Manchester City won were with the same result - 3-1.

The hosts also traditionally make high-scoring matches.

This is the place to say that 5 of the last 6 matches played by RB Leipzig were with Over 2.5 goals. While 4 out of 7 ended with a goal/goal.

The Bulls play open and efficient football. By focusing on transition and strong and fast counter-attacks.

Prediction for a possible correct result: 1-3 for Man City.

RB Leipzig have lost just 1 of their previous 20 official matches (15-4-1)

RB Leipzig did brilliantly against Wolfsburg in their away game last weekend in the second round of the Bundesliga.

And won with the classic 3-0.

It was one of their best performances since New Years. And there have been some excellent matches since then.

They recently failed to win in back-to-back meetings with Köln away (0-0) and at home against Union (1-2).

But on Saturday, Marco Rose's players returned to winning ways in the best possible way.

RB Leipzig is still in contention for the title in Germany

The fact that RB Leipzig missed several chances to break into the top of the Bundesliga standings has demoralized them a bit.

But the triumph over Wolfsburg gave this team new energy.

The title race in Germany this season is very interesting. Because the first 6 teams are collected in 5 point difference.

And at the top we have a triumvirate between Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin, who have equal assets.

Manchester City is catching up in the battle for the title in England

Instead of winning and keeping the pressure on Arsenal, Manchester City only drew 1-1 in Nottingham against Forest.

Although initially leading the score.

So Josep Guardiola's team again fell behind the Gunners, who had won three days earlier.

Also, Arsenal have a game in hand which could be very valuable.

Manchester City have conceded 10 goals in their last 9 games

Inconsistency in the backline is problematic for Pep Guardiola and his boys.

Because Manchester City conceded at least one goal in the previous 4 matches and a total of 10 goals in the last 9 matches.

Man City have lost 3 of their last 5 away games (1-1-3)

Man City are not at all confident away from home with just one win in their previous 5 away games.

After three successive defeats, they beat Arsenal before a draw in Nottingham against Forest.

We have to admit that Citizens now often show problems that were not seen in the past.
