RB Leipgiz vs Manchester City
If Pep Guardiola needs a pick-me-up after Manchester City’s loss in the Premier League, a dose of UEFA Champions League action may be just the thing.
With 97 victories from 154 games handled in the tournament, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has the greatest win percentage (63%) of those in charge of more than 50 games in the competition’s history. Moreover, with Manchester City having only lost one of their previous 17 UEFA Champions League matches against German teams, expectations for success at the Red Bull Arena are high.
Last season, they were defeated by German opponents. RB Leipzig is the opponent. We’ll look at their two group stage matches from last season in a moment, but Marco Rose’s team have won their past four games in the tournament, their longest winning streak in the UCL. However, they have lost their past three knockout games without scoring, including back-to-back 2-0 defeats against Liverpool in the 2020-2021 season.
