Manchester City looking to continue their perfect Champions league record against RB Leipzig

Machester City aims to maintain their flawless Champions League record, hosting RB Leipzig and closely monitoring Haaland impact.

Manchester City is set to come up against Leipzig for the second time in the UCL after beating them 3-1 in Germany last month and having already booked their place in the knockout stage stages winning all of their last four games.

The Bundesliga outfit have also secured a place in the last 16 but they will still be keen to take top spot from City who beat them 7-0 when they faced each other in the last 16 of the competition last season.

Leipzig will be seeing Haaland face in their nightmares ahead of the game.

The superstar has scored more goals against Leipzig than against any other team in his career, netting 11 times in only seven appearances against the Germans while playing for both Man City and Borussia Dortmund.

Five of those strikes came earlier this year in City’s 7-0 win when the Norweigan ran riot to send his side through to the quarter-finals.

Haaland overall stats in the Champions League are unbelievable and he doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.  He is averaging well over a goal a game with a total of 39 goals in 34 matches and he will be aiming to add more on Tuesday.

Guardiola believes the City fans need to create as much noise as they can at the Etihad for his players to perform better.

“The stadium is always full, we have to play as best as possible, create as much to energise the people.” said Guardiola during a pre-match conference.

“I had the feeling the team is playing really good, a few moments against Liverpool to take some tips for tomorrow. Many things we’ve done well.”

“These players have done for many years, we love to do it together. The games last season, important games, against Arsenal for the Premier League, they were there.”

“We need that, my humble opinion – to be successful we need our fans. Thank you so much, without them not possible to be here.”

“Together we are stronger, for them to be part of our game is much better and we feel they are there. We play better.”
