You can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester City vs. RB Leipzig
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the Manchester City vs. RB Leipzig picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Manchester City vs. RB Leipzig, Green is backing Manchester City to win to nil, meaning RB Leipzig fails to score in a loss. After losing the FA Community Shield to Leicester City and losing to Tottenham away in the first Premier League matchday, Manchester City has ripped off three consecutive victories.
The Sky Blues hammered Norwich City and Arsenal 5-0 and then avenged the earlier loss to Leicester City with a 1-0 away win on Saturday in league play. Manchester City has had nine players score its 10 team goals (one own goal) so far this Premier League season. That inability to focus on stopping one particular attacking player is a large part of what makes them so difficult to defend, especially for an RB Leipzig side that lost Dayot Upamecano, Marcel Sabitzer and Ibrahima Konate during the transfer window.
“De Bruyne and Phil Foden are on the brink of returning from injury, and they could also play a part in the game. (Bernardo) Silva and Ilkay Gündogan also chip in with goals from midfield,” Green told SportsLine. “Man City should ultimately have enough quality in midfield to open up Leipzig’s defense in this game, and it should secure a reasonably comfortable win.”
