Why RB Leipzig is a good bet versus Manchester City

The Bundesliga squad shows 3 wins, a draw, and a loss in their last 5. The form doesn’t inspire, but it’s not bad considering the loss and draw occurred against terrific Bundesliga squads.

Union Berlin, which RB lost 2-1 against, is in a 3-way tie atop the Bundesliga with Dortmund and Bayern, yes, that Bayern.

Cologne followed up the draw against Leipzig with a 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt. The best thing about RBL’s form is that they beat Wolfsburg in their last.

Why Manchester City is a good bet versus RB Leipzig

The Sky Blues have strikers all over the starting lineup. Not only that, but their top striker, Erling Haaland, terrorized RB Leipzig when he played for Dortmund.

Haaland has scored 26 goals and dished 4 assists in 22 starts and 1 sub. The man is a machine on the pitch.

But you can’t just mark Haaland. You must also mark Julian Alvarez, one of the stars for Argentina at the World Cup, if he steps onto the pitch. Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are also capable strikers. Then, of course, there’s Kevin De Bruyne, who remains one of the world’s top midfielders.

Final Betting Analysis: Manchester City at RB Leipzig

Pep Guardiola wants Champions League and English Premier League titles this season, which is why Pep played many of his stars in the 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Beating the Gunners brought City 2 points closer to Arsenal on the Premier League standings. The Sky Blues manager played many of his stars versus Nottingham Forest, but he mixed it up, starting De Bruyne at the striker position.

The reason? Pep was experimenting to see what lineup he wanted to throw at RB Leipzig. So we shouldn’t worry so much about City’s draw against Nottingham.

On Wednesday, the Sky Blues will be ready. Simply put, Man City is too talented, too deep, and too well managed and coached not to win this in regulation. Lay it on the chalk to get it done.
