Manchester City vs RB Leipzig: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Sep 15 2021
Manchester City vs RB Leipzig prediction for Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League clash at Etihad Stadium in Manchester. Runners-up in the last edition, Manchester City start their campaign by hosting RB Leipzig in Group A of the 2021/22 UCL season’s matchday one. You can follow our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Manchester City to have a winning start to a new CL campaign

Pep Guardiola is still looking for his first Champions League title outside of Barcelona. Indeed, the Spaniard had a big chance last season when City reached the final but lost to Chelsea. Moreover, the Citizens were on course on winning an unprecedented four trophies but ended with two. Guardiola kept most of his team players and added Jack Grealish to his squad.

During the new campaign, Guardiola’s team won their last three Premier League games to nil. Hence the Spaniard looks forward to keeping that form as they host Leipzig. With PSG also in their group and a trip to Paris on course in their second match, three points look very essential. Moreover, City won their last five UCL games and kept their net clean for 790 minutes the last term. 

Manchester city key points

  • City won their last three home games by five goals to nil
  • The Citizens scored on average 3.2 goals in their last five home matches
  • Three clean sheets is what City registered in their last five home games

RB Leipzig must improve as they travel for a tough fixture 

Leipzig traveled to Manchester last year in the UCL and were hammered by United 5-0. But coach Jesse Marsche hopes to avoid that result as they travel to Etihad stadium. The Red Bulls suffered a similar beating at the hands of Bayern Munich 4-1 at the weekend, however. 

Nonetheless, for a side that finished second in the Bundesliga last term, their start this season was disappointing. Precisely coach Marsche’s team won one and lost three matches so far. This is Leipzig’s fourth appearance in the UCL group stages. Notably, the Germans reached the semi-finals in the 2019-20 season and lost to PSG.

Leipzig Key Stats

  • Leipzig won one of their last five away games
  • The Red Bulls last six defeats were to nil
  • The average number of goals Leipzig conceded in their last five away matches is 1.3

Manchester City vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Manchester City always play in the Champions League to win it. Indeed they were so close last season but failed at the last hurdle. With PSG in their group this season, Guardiola’s team need to be very decisive in their matches.

Needless to say, the importance of finishing top of the group to have an easier draw in the knockout stages. Undoubtedly, the Citizens are the favorites to win this match and with a big margin.

However, coach Marsche and Leipzig will do their best to avoid being easy bait. But with their current form that looks unlikely and Marsche has serious defensive issues to address. 

Vbet is offering 1.32 for a City win. Hence, a combination with the outcome of the match and total goals has better odds. Therefore we will choose from Vbet’s combos section a couple of bets.
