RB Leipzig host Manchester City in Group A of UEFA Champions League 2021/22 this evening.
The match takes place at the Red Bull Arena, and will be shown live on BT Sport.
Fresh from their biggest European victory, Leipzig are looking to secure third place in the group.
The Bundesliga club were 5-0 winners at Club Brugge on Matchday 5, the joint biggest margin of victory in this season’s UEFA Champions League, to move level with the Belgian club on four points, although Leipzig hold the head-to-head advantage.
That means they will qualify for the UEFA Europa League if they match or better Club Brugge’s result at Paris Saint-Germain.
City also triumphed on Matchday 5, a 2-1 win at home to Paris – their tenth successive home victory in the competition – securing first place in Group A ahead of the French club; the English champions have won four of their five games in the section.
Leipzig will be under new management for this match having parted company with coach Jesse Marsch on Sunday; assistant Achim Beierlorzer will take temporary charge.
Coverage starts at 5.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT Sport will also broadcast Liverpool’s visit to AC Milan from 7.45pm on BT Sport 2.
