Manchester City and RB Leipzig are two of Europe's relatively new kids on the block.

For the last half decade or so, they have regularly reached the latter stages of the Champions League and have become renowned for the talent at their disposal.

Despite this, their battles in competitive action have been few and far between.

Here is the complete history of Man City vs RB Leipzig.

Man City vs RB Leipzig H2H record

Man City have faced RB Leipzig on just two occasions so far - both fixtures coming in the group stages of the 2021/22 Champions League.

In their first meeting, City smashed Leipzig 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium in what was the beginning of the end for Jesse Marsch in his brief tenure in Germany. Nathan Ake opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola's side before a Nordi Mukiele own goal put the hosts 2-0 up.

Christopher Nkunku's two strikes, either side of a Riyad Mahrez penalty, made it 3-2 just after the half-time interval, before Jack Grealish restored City's two-goal advantage. Nkunku sealed his hat-trick with just 20 minutes remaining, but it was to no avail as Joao Cancelo and Gabriel Jesus sealed a convincing home win.

The return fixture was played behind closed doors due to fresh Covid-19 restrictions, with Leipzig running out 2-1 winners in what was essentially a dead rubber fixture with their Europa League fate all but secured.
