Manchester City’s Player Injuries
Manchester City has no injuries so far but players can get injured during their warmup and or during the team’s training sessions leading up to the game as of now there are no injuries to Manchester City but only time will tell.
RB Leipzig’s Player Injuries
RB Leipzig on the other hand has four injuries:
- Diallo Bruised his knee back in January and will return late this month.
- Nkunku suffered a hamstring injury early this month and will return back to training and games in early April.
- 3. Gulácsi suffered a cruciate ligament injury in October last year and will return back to action in the middle of June.
- Schlager suffered a ligament injury early this month and will return back to action around late April. These players are on the injured list. Can this be a bad sign for Leipzig? Only time will tell
Manchester City’s Players To Look Out For
The main players in form for Manchester City are mainly Haaland and De Bruyne, Haaland is the brightest goal scorer for Manchester City this season with his goal tally being at a whopping twenty-eight goals already this season. He is on record to beat the premier league’s most goals in one season record anytime now.
He also has an expected goal rate of a whopping 20.14 which is the highest in the team this season and Kevin De Bruyne has an expected assist rate of 11.43 as he already has twelve assists this season. Both Haaland and De Bruyne look to add to their goals and assist tallies with the upcoming Champions League Round of sixteen Leg two match coming up.
RB Leipzig’s player forms
RB Leipzig most in-form player is Timo Werner right now since Nkunku is injured and has an expected goal rate of 5.99 and an expected assist rate of 1.83. They may not be the highest numbers compared to Manchester City’s Haaland and De Bruyne he is one of the most in-form for Leipzig as he gets involved in every goal that RB Leipzig has scored this season but he is expected to score more goals this season since leaving Chelsea in the summer he has lit up the Bundesliga ever since returning.
