After a hard-fought win at Palace, City face a tough Champions League tie towards Leipzig. A 1-1 draw wasn’t a foul consequence, though judging by the response in Twitter, it was the apocalypse! Final time at dwelling, we hit six previous them. I don’t anticipate that this time round however assume the blues will probably be snug Winners.

I feel City will get the job achieved right here however will probably be tight. Since these two met within the first leg, Pep’s boys have received 4 in a row and conceded only one purpose. Leipzig are a robust workforce, filled with thrilling expertise, having fun with a wonderful 2023 themselves thus far, however I simply really feel this will probably be too large an ask to come back away from dwelling and upset one of many match favourites. I’m anticipating one other back-and-forth recreation, a number of possibilities, a number of pleasure, and a slim dwelling win.

Robust, powerful match. City’s midfield wants to indicate up and I feel in the event that they do, they run away with this one. Anticipate excessive flying and typical Purple Bull soccer, nonetheless a lean City win for me.

Truthfully? I’m slightly terrified. The workforce has been so inconsistent this 12 months that there’s virtually no option to predict what occurs subsequent. A win makes this the second longest profitable streak of the season, which nearly makes me really feel much less doubtless that’s it’s going to occur. However enjoying on the Etihad offers me extra confidence. Pep received’t care as a lot about management, and hopefully Phil is wholesome sufficient to begin over Mahrez.

Manchester City welcomes RB Leipzig to the Etihad to search out out who strikes on to the quarterfinals of the Champion’s League. Can Dias transfer on from Gvardiol utilizing his shoulders as a launching pad? Does Pep belief his system or makes the dreaded galaxy brained determination that hampers the gamers from reaching their full potential? Was the ten minutes Kevin performed towards Crystal Palace sufficient to get him sorted. These are just a few questions I really feel snug asking out loud. Pep believes the workforce is enjoying at a excessive stage and it’s solely a matter of time earlier than the objectives come. No higher time than a match that dropping isn’t an choice. Regardless of my ominous foreshadowing I do imagine Manchester City handles enterprise.

It’s a large match. A City victory will see them via to the Quarterfinals, a loss sends them crashing out. A draw means I’ll must do extra analysis into UEFA knock-out rounds tie-breaker guidelines. I really feel the Etihad will give the lads the increase wanted to get by their German guests. Maybe an actual Erling Haaland cracker to seal it.
