Man City vs RB Leipzig XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for Second Leg UEFA Champions League


Manchester City and RB Leipzig will square off on Tuesday for a spot in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

With the first leg in Germany ending 1-1 and the abolition of the away goals rule, it’s truly all to play for here. Whichever side wins on the night will secure their place in the next round.

City are looking to add a fifth consecutive win in all competitions and are undoubtedly the form team here, with Leipzig a little all over the place when it comes to recent results.
