Manchester City will make changes to their side for the final Champions League group game of the season at RB Leipzig, with top spot already secured.
City beat Paris Saint-Germain last time out to confirm progression to the last-16 as group winners in the champion league. That will allow Pep Guardiola to rest some key players against RB Leipzig tonight, with a number not even travelling to Germany.
City could run into RB Leipzig at a bad time tonight. The Bundesliga side have always been dangerous – they are the only opponent this season to put three goals past Pep Guardiola’s side – but too many lows under Jesse Marsch has seen the manager sacked so the players have a point to prove tonight after their contribution to that.
City are understrength whereas there is still Europa League qualification at stake in the group so the Blues will be up against it to get a result and keep their unbeaten and winning run going
While the game is a dead-rubber for City, Leipzig need to win in order to secure third spot and qualify for the Europa League after Christmas.
Given Club Brugge take on PSG, though, a point could end up being enough and they may just have enough to get it.
