Is Man City vs RB Leipzig on TV? How to watch UEFA Champions League last 16 - live stream, KO time, team news

Manchester City will take on RB Leipzig in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 tournament. They are 1-1 on aggregate

The Champions League returns once more as the second leg of the round of 16 matches will take place with Manchester City hosting RB Leipzig in the hope of reaching the quarter-final stages of the tournament. While RB Leipzig were able to hold the Premier League title holders to a draw in Germany, it could be a whole other story when they attempt to beat them on their own turf.

In a UCL surprise, Erling Haaland suffered a rare goal drought when taking on die Roten Bullen in Leipzig but will hope to make amends later this evening. The Norwegian star currently has 28 goals in his UCL career, despite only entering the tournament in 2019 and he has netted five goals in seven games so far this season alone.

Haaland already sits just outside the top all-time top 40 goalscorers in Europe’s highest competition and tonight could see him break into those top spots.

Team news

Guardiola is set to play with a full-fit squad after Phil Foden overcame a scare from a foot injury to line up at Selhurst Park last weekend. The ‘Pep Roulette’ could very much come into play and after being named on the bench for the win over Crystal Palace, Kevin de Bruyne will hope to fight his way back into the first XI while Riyad Mahrez and Kyle Walker will also expect recalls.

Leipzig will not enjoy quite such good luck as Etihad hat-trick hero Nkunku has picked up a fresh hamstring problem after recovering from a longer term knee injury. He is expected to miss out along with Zaver Schlager, Peter Gulacsi and Abdou Diallo. Konrad Laimer, Dominik Szobszlai and Lukas Klostermann were all reported to be feeling under the weather but after featuring on Saturday, it is clear these issues are behind them.
