How to watch Man City vs RB Leipzig on TV with channel, live stream and team news

By Joshua Smith

Manchester City will get their Champions League campaign underway when they host RB Leipzig at the Etihad on Wednesday hoping to ultimately go one better in the tournament than their second-placed finish last season.

City lost the final in heartbreaking fashion to Chelsea in May after Kai Havertz beat Ederson in a one-on-one shortly before half-time in Porto.

But in order for them to lift the trophy, they will have to first navigate the tricky Group A they have been drawn in which features French powerhouses PSG, Belgian champions Club Brugge and last season's second-placed Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Fans will be hoping a home game in their first match will help give the Citizens an advantage for the first match in the group stages of this year's tournament, which will be available to watch on TV.

What is the early Manchester City vs RB Leipzig team news?

Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden made their way back into the matchday squad against Leicester at the weekend and could feature.

De Bruyne has been recovering from an ankle injury, while Phil Foden is only now coming back from the foot injury which ruled him out of England's Euro 2020 final against Italy.

Goalkeeper Zack Steffen tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with the USA men's national team.

"He's [Steffen] in USA. Isolated because of the positive. After 10days and two PCRs will be made he will be back," Guardiola said in his press conference ahead of City's trip to Leicester on Saturday.
