Tip Reasoning

  • RB Leipzig have scored in all nine of their home games this season.
  • Manchester City have seen both teams score in each of their last four matches.
  • City have won three of these four games by a 2-1 scoreline.

Leipzig misery continues

RB Leipzig’s worst-ever start to a Bundesliga season continued on Friday as they lost at Union Berlin. Manager Jesse Marsch lost his job in the aftermath of that defeat and interim boss Achim Beierlorzer could be in for a difficult evening on Tuesday.

The German side have lost three of their last four games in all competitions and have already been knocked out of the Champions League, although they do need a result on Tuesday to secure third place and a resulting spot in the Europa League.

Rotated City can still impress

Manchester City have already wrapped up top spot in Group A but even with heavy rotation expected you have to fancy the in-form Citizens on Tuesday.

They have won each of their last seven matches in all competitions and have won four of their five group games, while the depth in Guardiola’s squad means even a second-string starting 11 is more than good enough to compete.

Expect goals at the Red Bull Arena

That being said, City’s defence has suffered at times this season. They have conceded in six of their last eight games in all competitions and both teams have scored in each of their last four.

RB Leipzig, for all their faults this season, have never struggled to find the net. They have scored in 16 of their last 17 competitive matches and in all nine of their home matches this term. Both teams have scored in each of their last four at home, so I’m backing goals at both ends on Tuesday.

I do think Manchester City can round off the group stage with a win, especially with Leipzig suffering from a myriad of selection concerns and the match at the Red Bull Arena being played behind closed doors. City have won three of their last four games by a 2-1 scoreline, so that’s my choice for a correct score prediction.
