Leipzig v Man City Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
Leipzig have had mixed results in the last five contests across all competitions, but are entering this tie fresh off a win. Man City on the other hand have been unbeaten for three straight games, but are coming off a draw. Let’s now take a closer look at both teams.
Leipzig v Man City Prediction – Preview
RB Leipzig finished the group stage second in Group F with 12 points, just one short of leaders Real Madrid. They finished the group stages with a bang as they thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0 at the Polish Army Stadium. Christopher Nkuku 10th minute goal fired the Red Bulls to a 1-0 lead. However, it was after the break that the visitors exploded, as Andre Silva and Dominik Szoboszlai each scored to increase the lead. Shakhtar’s Valeriy Bondar then inadvertently turned in Dani Olmo‘s strike to complete the scoreline. Marco Rose‘s side have had mixed success in all competitions and are currently 5th in the Bundesliga. Their last outing saw them dominate Wolfsburg, with Szoboszlai, Emil Forsberg and Konrad Laimer finding the net. Will they have enough to stop powerhouses Man City at home?
This is the 3rd time Leipzig have been pitted against an English team in the Round of 16. After winning both times against Tottenham in 2019/20, the Red Bulls bowed in both legs to Liverpool in 2020/21.
After winning their first 3 games in the UCL knockout stages, Leipzig have lost each of the last 3 without netting a goal (0-3 against Paris Saint-Germain in 2019/20 semifinal and two 0-2 losses to Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2020/21).
Manchester City F.C.
Manchester City finished the group stage on top of Group G with 14 points, 5 points clear of second placers Dortmund. On the last day of group competition, they came from behind to beat Sevilla, 3-1, at the Etihad Stadium. Rafa Mir provided the lone goal in the first half to fire the Rojiblancos ahead. However, three fantastic strikes from Rico Lewis, Julian Alvarez and Riyad Mahrez in the second period turned it around for the hosts. On the home front, Pep Guardiola‘s side are neck and neck with Arsenal in the Premier League table. They suffered a slight setback when Nottingham Forest’s Chris Wood equalised Bernardo Silva’s earlier netter in their most recent match, causing the Gunners to retake the top seat in the league. As they head to Leipzig for the first leg of the last 16, can the Citizens avenge last year’s humiliating exit?
Man City have lost just one of the previous 17 games against German teams in the UCL (W14 D2), with the Blues scoring an average of 2.6 goals in these matches. Their only loss was to Leipzig in last season’s group stage (1-2), where they had already qualified for the knockout rounds by then.
Among managers to oversee 50+ matches in the UCL, Pep Guardiola has the hgihest win percentage in the tournament’s history (63%, or 97 wins in 154 matches).
