Man City will be looking to bounce back from two defeats in a week, not something Pep Guardiola’s men are accustomed to. Newcastle knocked them out of the Carabao Cup and they then suffered a shock defeat to Wolves at the weekend. The RB Arena is hardly an easy place to visit so they are going to have to be back close to their best if they want to get a result.

Leipzig had a frustrating weekend too. They went 2-0 up against Bayern Munich before being pegged back to 2-2 in a thrilling match. The home side will want to avenge their 8-1 aggregate defeat to City last season, which included a 7-0 defeat in Manchester. Joško Gvardiol scored Leipzig’s only goal of that last 16 tie but has since joined the Citizens. He starts against his former club.

Both these team won their opening match and will be expecting to progress to the UCL knockout stages. However, their head-to-head meetings could have a huge impact on who wins the group. The history is slightly in favour of the reigning European champions. They have won two of the four games between the sides, with Die Roten Bullen winning one and the other encounter ending in a draw.

Here's how they line up:

Leipzig: Blaswich, Klostermann, Simakan, Lukeba, Raum, Simons, Schlager, Seiwald, Forsberg, Openda, Poulsen

Man City: Ederson, Walker, Akanji, Dias, Gvardiol, Lewis, Rodri, Silva, Foden, Grealish, Haaland
