Manchester City vs RB Leipzig: prediction for the Champions League fixture
Manchester City take on RB Leipzig on September 15 in the Champions League match. Man City won the last three games, but will they keep their winning streak? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Manchester Cityhad a fantastic 2020/2021 season. Pep Guardiola's team won the English Premier League and were the finalists of the 2020/2021 Champions League. In the final City were defeated by Chelsea (0:1). The Sky Blues started the new season with a defeat: they lost to FA Cup winners Leicester in the Community Shield match (0:1).
In the first round of the Premier League, Manchester City suffered another defeat, this time from Tottenham (1:0), who look really good at the moment. But then Man City earned 9 points and scored 11 goals in the following three rounds against Norwich (5:0), Arsenal (5:0), and Leicester (1:0). Currently, City are in 5th place in the table.
Leipzig looked impressive in the last season of Bundesliga. The Bulls were among the leaders of the league from the first rounds. Even though Leipzig couldn't win the title, they confidently finished second. In the summer, the team lost key central defenders and the captain Marcel Sabitzer moved to Bayern Munich. Manager Julian Nagelsmann also left for Bayern.
The board spent a lot of money on new players, but new head coach Jesse Marsch hasn't been able to find balance in his team yet (understandably, as it is impossible to do in such a short period of time). In the last Bundesliga fixture, Leipzig were crushed by Bayern. This was their third defeat this season. At the moment, the club is only 12th in the standings.
Leipzig suffered 2 of the last 5 defeats with this score.
In 2 of the last 3 games of Manchester City, this bet played.
Leipzig scored in the second half in 2 of their last 3 games.
Manchester City made several mistakes at the start of the season, but this can be explained by bad luck: in the last matches, City showed that they are in excellent shape and are eager to win all their battles. RB Leipzig are not in their optimal form and are in the process of rebuilding the whole team. They will definitely struggle against Manchester City.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) to Manchester City
Prediction: Handicap (-1,5) to Manchester City

RB Leipzig made quite a few changes to the team, but so far they lack teamplay. Manchester City, on the contrary, have strengthened their squad and got in great shape. The Sky-Blues are stronger in all respects, and they should get a confident victory.
Our second bet - Manchester City to win by 2 goals
