As part of one of the matches of the 6th round of the Champions League group stage, Leipzig and Manchester City will fight face-to-face in a face-to-face meeting. On whose side will the victory be in this meeting. Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.

Leipzig

The Bulls are frankly failing this season. The team is failing in the German championship, and it has already flown out of the LCH. In the last round of the national championship, the bulls disappointed again, losing to the Berlin Union with a score of 1:2. This failure threw today's hosts to the 11th place in the standings. In this meeting, the Germans cannot lose in any way, since the team has the same number of points with Brugge. A misfire of the Bulls in this match and a draw in Paris will allow the Belgian club to go further.

Manchester City

Guardiola's team will be satisfied with any result in this meeting, because by the match of the 6th round of the group stage of the LCH, the team was able to score 12 points to its asset, and therefore can afford to take a breath. Moreover, Manchester City topped the Premier League standings at the weekend. The victory over Watford (3:1), coupled with the defeat of Chelsea in the match against West Ham (2:3), allowed the citizens to rise to the first place. In 5 matches of the group round, City have already scored 17 goals, however, and conceded 8 goals. In the upcoming match, the townspeople will be the favorites.

I think that in this meeting the opponents will act as openly as possible, which will help them to submit a considerable number of corners, and create a lot of dangerous moments. Our bid will concern the increased total for the corners.
