RB Leipzig vs Man City odds
*Odds correct as of 18:30 on October 3
RB Leipzig made a great start to their Champions League group stage campaign with a 3-1 away win over Swiss champions Young Boys. It continued their good run in the competition, losing just one of their last seven Champions League matches, winning five and drawing one. However, that one defeat did come against Man City — a 7-0 thrashing. The Bundesliga giants have followed that up with wins over Borussia Monchengladbach and Wehen Wiesbaden — the latter in the DFB-Pokal — and a 2-2 draw at home to Bayern Munich, leaving them challenging well on three fronts.
As for Man City, their perfect start to the season has come to a sudden half with back-to-back defeats for the first time since January, the first coming 1-0 at Newcastle United in the EFL Cup, followed by a 2-1 defeat away to Wolves in the Premier League. The European champions did, however, come from 1-0 down to beat Red Star Belgrade 3-1 in their Champions League opener, firing a whopping 37 shots and generating 4.13 xG during that match.
