Man City have made a blistering start to the season while RB Leipzig are in poor form. 

I am tipping City to cover a -1 handicap and win to nil. City defeated Leicester 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, their third consecutive win without conceding. 

Pep Guardiola’s side deserved the victory, with 61% possession and 25-6 shots. Bernardo Silva broke the deadlock on 62 minutes.

City are in top form after comfortable 5-0 victories against Arsenal and Norwich at home before the international break. 

Leipzig fell to a heavy 4-1 home defeat against Bayern Munich, their third Bundesliga loss in four.

Jesse Marsch’s side were 3-0 down before Konrad Laimer pulled a goal back. Leipzig remained on the back foot and conceded a fourth late on. 

Marsch has struggled at the Red Bull Arena since taking charge in July. He lost star players Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabitzer and has one league win, a 4-0 home victory against Stuttgart. 

Verdict

City are in fine form, scoring plenty of goals and keeping clean sheets. They should comfortably beat out-of-form Leipzig to nil.
