Manchester City and RB Leipzig meet in the Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League 2021/2022. This game will take place at Etihad Stadium in Manchester City on September 15, 2021 at 3:00 PM (ET). Manchester City have everything ready for the new season. Here is all the detailed information about this Champions League potential lineups.
The home team does not stop thinking about the defeat against Chelsea 1-0 in the final game of the Champions League 2020-2021, that single goal trashed all the good work of a full season. But Guardiola is sure that they can reach another final in this new season.
RB Leipzig are excited to play on the group stage for the fifth year in a row as one of the German teams with a big number of tournament appearances. Last season they finished second in Group H of the Champions 2020-2021.
Manchester City probable lineup
Manchester City won the last three games in the Premier League to reap the first winning streak of the season against Norwich City 5-0, Arsenal 5-0 and Leicester City 1-0. They appear to have returned to good form after starting the 2021 Premier League with two losses.
Josep Guardiola, Manchester City’s head coach, told a press conference this week that he feels good after recent victories in the Premier League. Another important thing he mentioned was about a possible game against Messi’s PSG: “They will not be our toughest opponent in the round”
This is the likely Manchester City’s lineup for this game: Ederson (GK); Walker (DF), Dias (DF), Stones (DF), Cancelo (DF); Rodri (MF), Gundogan (MF), Silva (MF); Mahrez (MF), De Bruyne (FW), Sterling (FW).
RB Leipzig probable lineup
RB Leipzig play the first game of the group stage with two recent losses in the Bundesliga. They lost against Wolfsburg 0-1 on the road and against Bayern Munich 1-4 at home. RB Leipzig are scoring an average of 1.25 goals per game.
Jesse Marsch, RB Leipzig’s head coach, showed insecurity this week by admitting that his team is not ready to play against Manchester City. He made that comment after the tough loss to Bayern Munich at home.
This is the likely RB Leipzig’s lineup for this game: Gulacsi (GK), Klostermann (DF), Orban (DF), Simakan (DF), Angelino (DF), Laimer (MF), Haidara (MF), Nkunku (MF), Olmo (MF), Szoboszlai (FW), Silva (FW).
