On February 22, Red Bull Arena (Leipzig) will host the 1/8 final match of the Champions League, in which RB Leipzig will compete with Manchester City. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

RB Leipzig

The team, having a difficult beginning of the previous season, was able to change the state of things in the very end of the tournament. Moreover, it not only “jumped” into the quartet as a leader, but also took the DFB Pokal. Still, Tedesco did not become a long-term hero – the start of the new draw was so terrible that the management said goodbye to Domenico in September. A 1-4 defeat made by Shakhtar in the first round of the Champions League became a fatal one. However, the successor, Marco Rose, eventually turned everything around, and the German club, having won four times in a row, provided itself with one more play-off. At the same time, there were some improvements in the Bundesliga. However, February brought a kind of recession that spoiled the mood – a 0-0 draw in Koln and a home 1-2 defeat in the match with Union. And just before the start of the play-offs, the team improved its position by a 3-0 victory in the battle against Wolfsburg.

Manchester City

The club spent hundreds of millions on newcomers – by the way, just now it may be resulted in very serious penalties. The higher mentioned investments have allowed adding in the game and now “the Citizens” are simply “sick and tired” of local, English trophies, even if we speak about victories in the Premier League. And there is no surprise that they have a lot of misfires in this draw. The team caught up with Arsenal, defeating the opponent in a head-to-head battle and immediately lost points in the match with Nottingham Forest! One way or another, everything was mainly for the success in the Champions League – even Guardiola was called to the club for the same purpose. So far, the team has got the following scenario: it confidently passes the group stage, then, the British grandee sooner or later is blown away in the play-offs. In 2021, the team finally managed to reach the final, but, having the status of favourite, it lost to Chelsea. Speaking about the previous spring, a huge advantage did not help and, as a result, Real Madrid overcame the semifinal of the tournament.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

The clubs had got head-to-head matches at the group stage of the previous season. Then, the hosts won with a 6-3 score in England, and at the end of the draw, its reserve team was defeated in Germany – 1-2.


Bookmakers believe in the victory of the English grandee, but it can make a surprise negatively. Thus, we bet on “total: over 2.5” (odd: 1.666).
