Manchester City has been one of the top teams through the group stage of the 2021 UEFA Champions League, and it plays its final group game on Tuesday against RB Leipzig. The German side opened play in Group A with three consecutive losses, but will try to take a win back from the Sky Blues as it did from Club Brugge in its previous match. Leipzig is a contender to transfer to the Europa League next season, but would like to finish its run in the Champions League on a high note. You can see what happens in the Group A finale when you watch the match live on Paramount+.
Kickoff for RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City is set for 12:45 p.m. ET from Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany.

UEFA Champions League picks for Manchester City vs. RB Leipzig
Before you tune in to Tuesday's match, you need to see the RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City picks from SportsLine's 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 well 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.
He's also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City, Green is predicting both teams to score and the match to go over 2.5 goals at -140 odds. Such has been the case in three of Leipzig's last five matches across all competitions and all of City's last four matches. Considering Manchester City will likely take the opportunity to get its younger players time on the pitch with Group A wrapped up, that adds a degree of volatility to the outcome.
Leipzig parted ways with former manager Jesse Marsch over the weekend and will be led by interim manager Achim Beierlorzer. He was last a manager in 2019 for Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05 and finished his tenure there with matches that saw four-plus goals in four of his last five at the helm. Beierlorzer should look to feature attacking midfielder Christopher Nkunku, who has three goals and two assists in his last two Champions League appearances.
"Leipzig has been reasonably dangerous in attack this season, led by the talented Christopher Nkunku, but its defense has struggled," Green told SportsLine. "The club sold both center-backs, Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konaté, plus midfielder Marcel Sabitzer in the summer, ripping the spine out of the team."
