Manchester City have shown their winning mentality in their 3-2 comeback win over RB Leipzig. The European champions were well below their best in the first half as they went in 2-nil down at the interval. A brace from Lois Openda gave the visitors a deserved lead. But the second half was a different story as the treble winners clicked into gear to cap a remarkable comeback.
Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney reacts to another comeback from Pep Guardiola’s team in the video below. Steven believes Manchester City are developing an aura similar to Real Madrid where no game is ever over. Time and time again over Pep Guardiola’s reign his side has shown a remarkable ability to overcome adversity. It was on display against RB Leipzig as City put a poor first-half performance behind them to claim another UEFA Champions League victory.
Goals from Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez clinched a famous comeback for the treble winners. Though the comeback was impressive there were some concerns on display at the Etihad. Defensive errors that plagued the champions in their 4-all draw with Chelsea resurfaced. Pep Guardiola had a warning about his side’s mistakes during his post-game conference.
Of concern for Manchester City will be the form of Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker. The pair were far from their best during the win at the Etihad. It followed their subpar showing against Chelsea. They were back to their best in the draw with Liverpool at the weekend.
