Can RB Leipzig secure post-Christmas knockout European football?

On Friday night, die Roten Bullen were beaten 2-1 by Union Berlin at Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

This means Leipzig have lost three Bundesliga games in a row, following defeats to Hoffenheim and Bayer Leverkusen.

In all, they’ve won just four of their last 12 league outings so are down in 11th place.

Thus, on Sunday morning, it was confirmed that Head Coach Jesse Marsch had been relived of his duties.

The American had previously coached New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg but only lasted 21 matches in the organisation’s top job.

But, Marsch’s last victory means they still have a good chance of salvaging something from this European campaign.

Leipzig lost their first three games in this Champions League group, starting with a 6-3 drubbing at Manchester City.

But, on matchday four, Dominik Szoboszlai’s 92nd minute penalty snatched a 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain.

Then, a fortnight ago, they enjoyed their biggest-ever European victory, hammering Club Brugge 5-0 at Jan Breydel Stadium.

Christopher Nkunku bagged a brace, he’s now scored seven in the group stages, while Emil Forsberg also scored twice and André Silva secured the win.

So now, RB Leipzig are up to third, above Club Brugge on head-to-head record.

Thus, they just need to match Brugge’s matchday six result to secure a place in the Europa League preliminary knockout phase.

Given that the Belgian champions face PSG at Parc des Princes, they have a very good chance of doing just that, even with a defeat.

Will the post-Marsch era in Saxony start with a statement victory?

Will Manchester City beat Leipzig again?

While Leipzig have something to play for, it is firmly job done for Manchester City.

In this group, Pep Guardiola’s side started by winning three of their first four, putting six past Leipzig before beating Brugge 5-1 and then 4-1.

Their only defeat came in the French capital but they knew a home win over PSG would wrap up first place.

Despite the fact Man City dominated on matchday five, it was actually the Ligue 1 leaders who took the lead just after half time.

Nevertheless, the Citizens got their just rewards, winning 2-1, with Raheem Sterling and then Gabriel Jesus on target.

So, the Premier League champions have 12 points and are through to the round of 16 as group winners.

Thus, they’re through to the knockout stages for the ninth successive season, last crashing out bottom of their group in 2012/13.

Domestically, they moved top of the Premier League for the first time this season on Saturday.

Sterling opened the scoring after just four minutes before a Bernardo Silva brace secured a straight-forward 3-1 victory over Watford.

That makes it five successive league wins, accumulating 21 points from the last 24 available, only losing to Crystal Palace.

Here, given that the Sky Blues will play six more fixtures between now and New Years’ Day, Guardiola will surely not prioritise this dead-rubber.

Will Man City continue their winning run at Red Bull Arena?

Achim Beierlorzer is in interim charge for this game and, given the change of management, it’s hard to predict the XI.

But, given that the home side do need a result to wrap up top spot, their best players will be on show.

Péter Gulácsi, as always, will begin in goal.

But, in front of him, the formation has been very flexible; it’s been a back three ten times and a flat-back-four on 11 occasions.

Against a top side, the best guess is that it’ll be a three, featuring Lukas Klostermann, Joško Gvardiol and Nordi Mukiele.

Benjamin Henrichs and former Manchester City man Angeliño will be at wing-back; Willi Orban, Marcel Halstenberg and Marcelo Saracchi are all injured.

In midfield, America Tyler Adams could keep his place with Kevin Kampl returning alongside, displacing Konrad Laimer.

In attack, despite the fact Dani Olmo and Yussuf Yurary Poulsen are unavailable, they still have plenty of options.

Christopher Nkunku is a certainty to start having scored his 14th goal of the season on Friday night, seven of which have been in this competition.

Dominik Szoboszlai could also be in the XI, supporting André Silva, but Emil Forsberg and Brian Brobbey are more than useful alternatives.

Will the german side secure Europa League knockout phase football?

As for the visitors, given that they have nothing to play for, Pep Guardiola will surely rest and rotate where possible.

Also, given that five substitutes are available, numerous big guns left in reserve can come on and contribute if necessary.

Thus, Zack Steffen could make just his fifth club appearance of the season in goal, giving Ederson a break.

Since the end of last season, he’s played just four times for Man City while appearing five times for the United States.

At the back, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nathan Aké and John Stones could all be given an opportunity.

This would allow Aymeric Laporte, Rúben Dias and one of the usual full-backs a rest with either João Cancelo or Kyle Walker at right-back.

Further forward, Kevin De Bruyne returned for a 23 minute cameo at Vicarage Road after picking up Covid-19 whilst away with Belgium.

He is likely to see some minutes here, in an attempt to get back up to speed, although this may not be from the start.

Veteran Fernandinho and a pair of 19 year old, James McAtee and Cole Palmer, could be given starts the latter, possibly, as the false nine.

The rest of the XI will be comprised of regulars with Riyāḍ Maḥrez, Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva the most likely candidates.

Rodri, İlkay Gündoğan, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden would therefore be given a breather.

Ferran Torres, who hasn’t played since getting injured during the UEFA Nations League Finals, is the only player unavailable.

Will this mix-and-match Man City side still be too strong for RB Leipzig?
