RB Leipzig host Manchester City at the Red Bull Arena in game two of Group G in the Champions League. Leipzig and Man City already have three points to their name and will be looking to establish dominance in their group.
RB Leipzig currently sit top of Group G after their opening game win, just above Man City. In the Bundesliga, Leipzig sit fifth after six games with four wins, one draw and one loss.
In their last five games in all competitions Leipzig have four wins and one draw. Xavi Simons, Lois Openda and David Raum all scored in the first half in the 3 - 0 thrashing of Augsburg. In the Champions League, Leipzig travelled to Switzerland to face Young Boys. Mohamed Simakan, Xaver Schlager and Benjamin Sesko all scored in the 3 - 1 win with Meschak Elia on the scoresheet for Young Boys.
Timo Werner scored the only goal of the game in the 1 - 0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach where Leipzig restricted Monchengladbach to just one shot on target. In the First round of the DFB-Pokal Leipzig faced Wehen Wiesbaden. Emil Forsberg and Sesko gave Leipzig a 2 - 0 lead by the 18th minute but Ivan Prtajin pulled a goal back before halftime. Sesko scored again and it was enough to make Prtajin’s second goal ineffective as Leipzig won 3 - 2.
The last time out for Leipzig was against Bayern Munich. Openda and Castello Lukeba put Leipzig into a 2 - 0 lead but a penalty from Harry Kane and a goal from Leroy Sane meant the game finished 2 - 2.
Man City sit just below Leipzig in second in Group G despite having three points and the same goal difference as Leipzig. In the Premier League, City sit top of the league with six wins and one loss.
In their last five games in all competitions, City have three wins and two losses. James Ward-Prowse opened the scoring for West Ham but goals from Jeremy Doku, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland gave City the 3 - 1 win over The Hammers. In the Champions League City hosted Red Star Belgrade. Osman Bukari drew first blood for Red Star, but a brace from Julian Alvarez and a goal from Rodri gave City the 3 - 1 win.
Despite Rodri’s red card against Nottingham Forest, Phil Foden and Haaland both scored to grab a 2 - 0 win. In the Third Round of the League Cup City travelled to Newcastle. The one goal came from Alexander Isak as Newcastle won 1 - 0 and booked their spot in the next round.
The most recent outing for City was a trip to Wolves. A Ruben Dias own goal gave Wolves the lead early on but Alvarez equalised in the second half. However, City couldn’t push for a win as Hwang Hee-chan scored in the 66th minute and grabbed the shock 2 - 1 win for Wolves.
Leipzig and Man City have met four times in their history, all in the Champions League and all in the last three seasons. City have two wins in comparison to Leipzig’s one win, with the other game finishing in a draw. However, when City win, they tend to win big with a 6 - 3 win and a 7 - 0 win under their belt.
