It’s time for the clash of this group G with RB Leipzig who welcome Manchester City as part of the 2nd day of the group stage of the Champions League. Winner of its first match 3-1 against Young Boys and currently in great form, the German club has the weapons to shake up the reigning champion this evening.
Opposite, the Skyblues also successfully entered the competition with a success against Red Star Belgrade (3-1). The winner of the evening would take a first option on qualification for the round of 16.
In terms of team compositions, Marco Rose is classic with a 4-2-2-2. The RBL technician trusts Poulsen to support Openda in attack while Lukeba and Simakan are associated in central defense. Pep Guardiola has some surprises in store for him, Lewis is preferred to Kovacic and Nunes in midfield. In attack, Alvarez is benched, it is Foden who will play in support of Haaland while Bernardo Silva starts on the right side of the attack.
