RB Leipzig vs Man City Betting Tips

  • Draw and both teams to score (Yes) – 18/5
  • Julian Alvarez to score anytime – 7/4

Team news

RB Leipzig have quite a few injuries to deal with ahead of the visit of Manchester City. Kevin Kampl, Timo Werner, Dani Olmo, Willi Orban and El Chadaille Bitshiabu, are all in the treatment room.

Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones are sidelined for Manchester City, while Bernardo Silva will be assessed ahead of the game.

Draw and both teams to score (Yes) @ 18/5

When these two sides last met in Leipzig back in February, Manchester City were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw, before smashing them 7-0 in the reverse fixture of the Champions League quarter-finals. The season prior saw RB Leipzig prevail 2-1 over the Cityzens in the group stage, meaning Pep Guardiola’s side are yet to taste victory at the Red Bull Arena.

Both sides have had strong starts to their respective seasons; RB Leipzig and Manchester City have each only lost once in the Bundesliga and Premier League respectively. They both boast strong attacking ranks, with each team scoring three goals in their Champions League opening victories a fortnight ago.

Under Marco Rose, RB Leipzig are not to be underestimated and they have what it takes to frustrate Guardiola’s men. Goals could flow in this one, but we get the strong feeling that Man City’s search for a first victory in this ground will continue come full time.

Julian Alvarez to score anytime @ 7/4

As Manchester City slipped to a surprising defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend, their brightest spark was Argentine Julian Alvarez. The World Cup winner scored a stunning free-kick to pull his side back on level terms at Molineux, only to be let down by his team mates.

Alvarez is enjoying a fine start to the season with five goals already in all competitions, including two in the Champions League. A brace last time out against Red Star Belgrade will ensure he is full of confidence ahead of the trip to Leipzig, where he will be hoping for another productive performance.
