Man City will face Leipzig in the opening match of the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League group A phase which will take place at the Etihad Stadium, Thursday (16/09/2021) at 12:30 midnight Indian time.
In this group A, City and Leipzig are joined together with Paris Saint Germain and Club Brugge.
The city is in very good shape ahead of this match. Last weekend, Pep Guardiola's men were able to pick a narrow 1-0 victory over Leicester City through Bernardo Silva's goal in the English Premier League.
The victory over Leicester was City's consecutive win in their last 3 matches (W3 D0 L0). Not only that, City also recorded always keeping a clean sheet in those 3 matches, and was able to score 11 goals.
On the other hand, Leipzig have performed poorly this season. Leipzig in the last match was just defeated by Bayern Munich at home with a score of 1-4 in the Bundesliga last weekend.
With this defeat, Leipzig has now recorded only 1 win in their last 4 matches (W1 D0 L3). These results are clearly not a good capital to face a team like City.
City and Leipzig themselves have never met before in any event. This match will be the first meeting between the two teams.
