Team News
RB Leipzig
Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams is back from a Champions League suspension served in the thrashing of Brugge, and his return is timely with Ilaix Moriba and Amadou Haidara both out of contention.

Yussuf Poulsen is still struggling with a calf problem and joins Dani Olmo, Marcel Halstenberg and Marcelo Saracchi on the sidelines, while Willi Orban and Hugo Novoa (COVID-19) were still self-isolating before the Union Berlin defeat.

Mohamed Simakan was fit enough to come off the bench in that defeat and could now feature from the start, but Achim Beierlorzer's hand is forced in several areas of the pitch.
RB Leipzig possible starting lineup:
Gulacsi; Klostermann, Simakan, Gvardiol; Mukiele, Adams, Laimer, Angelino; Nkunku, Forsberg; A. Silva

Manchester City
As for City, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne have all returned to fitness to boost Guardiola's options in the final third, leaving Ferran Torres as the visitors' only injury concern.

De Bruyne came off the bench in the Watford win after recovering from COVID-19 and will start here, while Riyad Mahrez and Cole Palmer could start in the attack with Gabriel Jesus being left at home.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nathan Ake and Fernandinho can also feel confident about their chances of starting, and there may be a place for Zack Steffen in between the sticks.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Steffen; Walker, Stones, Ake, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, B. Silva; Mahrez, Palmer, Grealish

Prediction: RB Leipzig 1-2 Manchester City
