5 things we learned from City’s 3-2 comeback win over RB Leipzig

Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney looks at 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 3-2 win over RB Leipzig. The win sealed the top spot in Group G of the UEFA Champions League as the reigning champions have qualified for the knockout stage of the tournament as group winners.

Phil Foden turned in another special performance to spark the treble winners turn around. Facing a 2-nil deficit at halftime Pep Guardiola’s men went up the gears in the second half. Foden was one of the major driving forces of the comeback. He scored one and set up Erling Haaland’s opener with a sumptuous through ball. Playing in midfield rather than out wide on the right Foden showed where his future may lie. The City Academy jewel has shown glimpses this season when played through the middle and Tuesday night’s performance was another example.

Another City Academy product Rico Lewis also showed his promise. The youngster put in an energetic display especially in the second half to help drive the European champions come back. It was yet another example of the quality player Lewis is and could become in the future.

The game wasn’t without concerns for Manchester City. Ruben Dias put in one of his poorest performances for some time in the first half. The Portuguese international was substituted at halftime after an uncharacteristically down performance. He wasn’t alone in having a down day in the first half as his and Manuel Akanji’s mistakes led to Lois Openda’s first-half brace. Pep Guardiola spoke about City learning from their mistakes post-game.

Steven Mcinerney goes over all of this and more in 5 things we learned from City’s win over RB Leipzig.
