Who will win today’s football match?

  • The straw that broke the camel’s back for RB Leipzig was a run of three defeats in four games, which saw Jesse Marsch’s stint at the club come to an end on Sunday. With a place in the Europa League still up for grabs, Achim Beierlorzer is dealt a rough hand to begin his rule at the club.
  • Manchester City will finish first regardless of midweek results, as they are on a seven-game winning streak heading into Tuesday’s match. With the holiday season approaching, Pep Guardiola is expected to utilise the trip to RB Leipzig as an opportunity to rest his players.
  • Nonetheless, City’s squad is still rich with quality, and despite the alterations to the lineup, the Premier League superpower is still the clear favourite to win the title.

Match Odds:

RB Leipzig: 5/2
Manchester City: 21/20
