Man City vs RB Leipzig

Manchester City are set to begin their 2021/22 Champions League adventure on Wednesday, facing off with German outfit RB Leipzig at the Etihad.

Luckily for City, though, Leipzig are not quite at the level we have seen from them in previous campaigns.

Julian Nagelsmann has departed the club for the Bayern Munich job and would take with him key midfielder, Marcel Sabitzer and Dayot Upamecano.

Elsewhere, Ibrahima Konate has left the club for Liverpool, leaving Leipzig a much weaker side than they finished 2020/21.

This has been reflected in their results so far this season, which has seen them win one and lose three in the league.

Stones & Laporte miss training

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Manchester City have been dealt something of a personnel blow.

Aymeric Laporte has formed a solid partnership with Ruben Dias at the heart of the Sky Blues’ backline this term, much like John Stones did during 2020/21.

However, as per Simon Bajkowski of the Manchester Evening News, both Stones and Laporte were not fit enough to take part in Man City training on Tuesday and are doubts for the Leipzig game:

John Stones and Aymeric Laporte weren’t fit enough to take part in #mcfc training session today and are doubtful for the RB Leipzig match tomorrow. Dias and Ake did train
