- Manager says that open games are a toss of a coin
- City face RB Leipzig in Champions League last-16 time
Control: if Manchester City do not achieve this versus RB Leipzig on Tuesday then their Champions League fate will be a toss of a coin, according to Pep Guardiola, as he plots a route beyond the Bundesliga’s third-placed side into the quarter-finals.
The tie is poised at 1-1 as Marco Rose’s side arrives at the Etihad Stadium for a high-stakes night. Guardiola, who has a fully fit squad, is concerned that an open contest would mean less chance of progression, having reviewed the opening leg.
