Manchester City will aim to preserve their 100% record in this season’s Champions League when RB Leipzig visit the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
As we head into Matchday 5, Pep Guardiola’s side find themselves three points clear of second-placed Leipzig in Group G, with Red Star Belgrade and Young Boys on one point apiece.
While Man City have won all four matches so far, the Red Bulls have won three of their four encounters, losing 3-1 to the defending champions last month.
Manchester City enter Tuesday’s clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with Liverpool, meaning they have drawn each of their last two games.
As a result, the reigning champs find themselves second in the Premier League table – one point shy of Arsenal and one point clear of Liverpool and Aston Villa.
Still, Guardiola’s men have enjoyed a perfect Champions League campaign up to now, notching 12 goals across four victories to book their place in the knockout phase.
Having scored exactly three goals in each of their UCL matches this season, City will be confident of recording another high-scoring win on Tuesday.
RB Leipzig, meanwhile, suffered a 2-1 defeat at Wolfsburg last time out, meaning they have lost three of their previous five matches across all competitions.
The Red Bulls have slipped to fifth in the Bundesliga standings 11 points behind table-topping Bayer Leverkusen – after a run of two defeats in three outings.
Leipzig kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Young Boys before losing to Man City by the same scoreline.
Since then, however, the German outfit have secured back-to-back wins against Red Star Belgrade to punch their ticket to the last 16.
Head-to-head: Leipzig have managed to win just one of their five previous Champions League meetings with Man City, suffering three defeats in the process.
