Manchester City dealt blow ahead of RB Leipzig as Laporte & Stones miss training on Tuesday

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.
