RB Leipzig faces Manchester City at the Red Bull Arena in a match from Group A of the Champions League. Are you ready to take a look at this fixture? Let’s preview it in our online soccer betting tips.
RB Leipzig are fighting hard for the third place in the group – this would allow them to continue their European participation in Europa League. Right now they are third in the standings with 4 points, but the 4th Club Brugge are on par with them.
The Red Bulls will host Man City with an interim manager – Achim Beierlorzer after Jesse Marsch’s sacking. So far Beierlorzer was an assistant to Marsch, but now he will have to lead the team on Tuesday. It’s a huge challenge for him and the team at whole.
Jesse Marsch was sacked by the board after the 1-2 defeat against Union Berlin in the Bundesliga. This loss put Leipzig on 11th place in the league – just 5 points above the relegation play-off spot. Under Jesse Marsch’s management RB Leipzig won just five of their Bundesliga matches.
Manchester City are traveling to Germany as relaxed as ever because they already won the group. Right now the Cityzens are 4 points ahead of the second PSG, just one round before the end of the group stage.
Most likely the manager Pep Guardiola will rest some key players and keep them fresh for the upcoming game against Wolverhampton Wanderers next weekend. This means that players like Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and probably Kevin De Bruyne will get a rest. In the same time players like Nathan Ake, Riyad Mahrez, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fernandinho should find a place in the starting eleven.
That’s the online soccer betting tips for the Champions League clash between RB Leipzig and Manchester City on Tuesday. Can Leipzig keep the third place in the group? Well, let’s see.
