Manchester City – Back line imperious as ever?

Pep Guardiola and Man City resume their quest for a maiden Champions League title together having fallen agonisingly short last time, losing 1-0 in the 2020-21 final to fellow English side Chelsea. Placed in Group A alongside Club Brugge, PSG and RB Leipzig, the current Premier League champions are widely expected to reach the knockout rounds for a ninth successive season without much bother.

There is every reason to believe they can make it a winning start to this season’s European adventure as well. City won all four meetings against opponents from Germany last season, with home and away victories in the Last 16 and Semi-Final over Borussia duo Monchengladbach and Dortmund. Winning the last seven such fixtures here in Manchester since a 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich in 2013.

The Cityzens were imperious during last season’s group stage, dropping only two points (W5 D1) as they recorded five clean sheets. At one stage in the tournament they had amassed 790 minutes without conceding. Ominously for rivals, both at home and abroad, they have begun the new season in a similar vein with three consecutive wins to nil since opening with a surprising 1-0 loss away at Tottenham.

RB Leipzig – New era off to uninspiring start?

Back for their fourth Champions League campaign, all in the last five seasons, RB Leipzig will need to overcome a slow start to life under new manager Jesse Marsch if they’re to make it beyond the group stage for a third season running. Last season’s Bundesliga runners-up begun 2021-22 with three league defeats out of four and can be found languishing 12th following Saturday’s chastening 4-1 loss to Bayern.

Die Rotten Bullen are without an away goal in the league this season following successive 1-0 losses at FSV Mainz and Wolfsburg. This could suggest a long evening awaits in Manchester, a city which won’t hold fond memories from their most recent visit. A resounding 5-0 loss to the other notable team from this part of England, Man Utd, in last season’s group stage was the club’s heaviest in European competition.

That was one of two defeats in an ultra competitive section, though, with the impressive victories over PSG and Man Utd helping them to qualify. Both wins were in Germany, though. Meanwhile RB Leipzig lost three of four Champions League away games in 2020-21 without scoring, half of them to English opposition. Beaten 2-0 home and away by Liverpool in a last-16 tie played exclusively in Hungary.

Manchester City Vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

In recent times Man City have made light work of German opposition and should do so again here against an RB Leipzig team which is still in transition following a summer of upheaval. Julian Nagelsmann is no longer prowling the dugout, and he has taken a couple of key players with him – defensive lynchpin Dayot Upamecano and midfield regular Marcel Sabitzer. So this is a tall order at the Etihad.


Manchester City Vs RB Leipzig – Key Facts:

  • Contrasting starts to the 2021-22 domestic seasons suggests RB Leipzig (W1 L3) have it all to do if they are to earn a positive outcome away to Man City (W3 L1).
  • In last season’s tournament, Man City went 790 minutes without conceding on route to the final. RB Leipzig qualified from a tough group but lost three of four away matches.
  • Man City are seeking their fourth win to nil in all competitions. Meanwhile RB Leipzig are desperately trying to avoid a third successive away defeat without scoring.


Man City are expected to make it a winning return to the competition they crave success in more than any other. The bet that instantly stands out is Man City Win To Nil. Pep Guardiola’s side were irresistible in the group stage last season, conceding only in their 3-1 win at FC Porto as they recorded five clean sheets and four wins to nil. Moreover, they have begun 2021-22 ominously with three clean sheets in four, all in wins.
