Manchester City vs RB Leipzig

MANCHESTER CITY will be bidding to book their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League when they welcome RB Leipzig to the Etihad for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday night.

The tie is delicately poised following last month's a 1-1 draw at the Red Bull Arena, as Josko Gvardiol headed in a 70th-minute goal to earn the German's a well deserved leveller.

Pep Guardiola's side were far from their purring best in the first leg but they have put themselves in a good position to reach the last-eight of Europe's elite club competition for what would be a sixth consecutive season.

Last time out, the Citizens maintained the pressure on Premier League leaders Arsenal as they eked out a 1-0 win away to Crystal Palace.

As for RB Leipzig, they returned to winning ways in the Bundesliga on Saturday by making light work of Borussia Monchengladbach in a 3-0 cruise to victory.

When the Red Bulls visited this venue last season, they were on the wrong end of a 6-3 rout in a wild group-stage game, but it should be a close affair this time around.
