Leipzig – Manchester City – Betting Review 22.02.2023
RB Leipzig hosts Manchester City at the Red Bull Arena in a first game from the
Champions League 1/8-finals. We will take a look in our free soccer predictions for today.
RB Leipzig will try to use their home advantage as they know how difficult it’s going to be
at the Etihad. At the same time Marco Rose’s boys must be careful about not conceding
goals – City are a team that always try to score away from home as well.
RB Leipzig’s big star Christopher Nkunku hasn’t played since the World Cup. He aims to
return against City, but he will be lacking match fitness if he do. At the same time the
Spanish international Dani Olmo picked a hamstring injury so he won’t be involved in the
game against Manchester City. The goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi is injured as well so he
won’t be available for selection until the end of the season.
Manchester City still try to win their first Champions League trophy. Under Pep Guardiola
they reached the final once, but there’s still no trophy.
We all know Man City very well – they have super stars in every area of the game. Erling
Haaland doesn’t stop scoring goals while Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Riyad
Mahrez are among the players who bring creative decisions in action.
Most likely Man City will try to control the match in Leipzig. They love to use the ball all of
the time and that’s their way of understanding the game. For Pep Guardiola’s team this is
a chance to prove that City are once again eager to reach the Champions League final,
but this time to win it.
That’s our free soccer predictions for today for the Champions League 1/8-finals first leg
between RB Leipzig and Manchester City. Surely City are favorites here, especially with so
many important players missing at Leipzig.
