Last Saturday, Red Bull hosted Bayern Munich, whom they had beaten twice. The next meeting also started well for Leipzig - by the 26th minute, RB had a two-goal lead thanks to fine strikes from Openda and Lukeba. Bayern woke up in the second half, and Leipzig scored two goals between 57th and 70th minutes. Both teams had chances to win the game, so a draw seems a fair outcome. 2:2 - Leipzig again did not lose to Bayern.
The team started the Champions League with a match in Switzerland against Young Boys. The first half ended in a 1:1 draw, but in the second half, Leipzig pressed their opponent on 71 minutes - Xaver Schlager scored. On 90+2, Benjamin Šeško set the final score - 3:1.
Manchester City won six matches in a row, but last week not only failed to extend the successful series but also lost twice in a row. First, the team dropped out of the English League Cup, losing minimally away to Newcastle. Then, in the championship, Man City left with zero points Wolverhampton - 1:2. Although these two failures look like a banal coincidence.
In the first round of the Champions League, Manchester City confidently coped with Crvena Zvezda at home. Although the Citizens conceded in the first half, they scored three times in a row in the second half - 3:1.
Expert Betting Tips
Last season, the rivals met in the UEFA Champions League. In the return game at home, Manchester City beat Leipzig, but the first game in Germany ended in a 1:1 draw. Likely, this time away to Leipzig will not end with a victory for Man City. The team has been a bit slower lately, but Leipzig is doing well during the season; they took points away from Bayern Munich last Saturday and can at least score against Manchester City. We bet on Leipzig's goals, but we believe City will also score, given the selection of performers in attack.
