Runner-Up Revenge

RB Leipzig @ Manchester City – Wednesday, 3:00 p.m. ET

After falling to Chelsea in last season’s Champions League Final, Manchester City return to the competition out for blood. This squad is still one of the most talented in the world, is in great form, and will be fully healthy ahead of this fixture with a Leipzig side that is in poor form.

Prior to last May’s fateful final, the Citizens stormed through UCL, failing to lose a single match while covering -1.5 goals four times in the group stage and three times in the knockout stage. After a season-opening loss to Tottenham, City have rattled off three straight wins with an eye-popping 11-0 combined score.

Leipzig, meanwhile, lost three of their last four Champions League away games — failing to score in all three — and have lost three of four to open the new Bundesliga season. Expect Man City to let loose here.

Pick: Manchester City -1.5 (-110)*

DFS Value Play: Raheem Sterling ($6,500)
