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. Both teams have had success both foreign and domestic lately, but their recent run of results makes it appear they're going in very different directions.

After losing the FA Community Shield to Leicester City and losing 1-0 away to Tottenham to start its Premier League campaign, Manchester City has collected three consecutive clean-sheet victories, outscoring Norwich City, Arsenal and Leicester City 11-0 in the process. The Sky Blues have been dominant in the midfield and had nine different scorers during that process.

RB Leipzig's Bundesliga season is off to a tough start. The runner-ups from a season ago have lost three of four league matches this season, including away losses to Mainz and Wolfsburg as well as a 4-1 beatdown at the hands of Bayern Munich on Saturday.

"(Manchester City) reached the final of this competition for the first time last season, but it suffered a surprise defeat to Chelsea," Green told SportsLine. "Guardiola will be determined to make amends this time around, and his team should begin its bid for glory with a routine victory over RB Leipzig."
