Man City vs Dortmund
Man City put on a real Champions League show last week against Sevilla, and they will be keen to back that up with a home win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
It will be City’s first outing since that 4-0 win in Spain with the intervening Premier League match postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Pep Guardiola is not short of options, but you would expect him to keep changes to a minimum.
Real Madrid team news
Karim Benzema and Eder Militao remain sidelined but Carlo Ancelotti is hopeful that both will be fit enough to return for the upcoming Madrid derby.
Lucas Vazquez also misses out through injury but Alvaro Odriozola has passed a late fitness check and makes the squad.
Real Madrid predicted lineup vs RB Leipzig
Real Madrid Starting 11 (4-3-3): Courtois; Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius

RB Leipzig team news
Lukas Klostermann and Dani Olmo are both out for Marco Rose’s side, while key midfielder Konrad Laimer has recently been ruled out with an ankle problem.
Rose is still trying to figure out his best side but may be reluctant to move too far away from the setup that thumped former employers Borussia Dortmund.
RB Leipzig predicted lineup vs Real Madrid
RB Leipzig Starting 11 (4-2-3-1): Gulacsi; Simakan, Orban, Diallo, Raum; Kampl, Schlager; Nkunku, Forsberg, Szoboszlai; Werner

Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig score prediction
Leipzig were mighty impressive last time out against Dortmund, but replicating that against this Real machine is a different test.
Ancelotti’s side have looked unstoppable of late but concerns over their inability to cope without the injured Benzema are more than fair. They made hard work of their four-goal haul against Mallorca at the weekend, but the fact they still managed to score so many served as a real warning sign.
It might not be a vintage Real performance, but it should be enough to get the job done.
Sevilla vs Copenhagen
Sevilla will face Copenhagen at the Parken Stadium in the second round the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
The Andalucían side travel to Denmark filled with confidence after picking up their first win in La Liga against Espanyol last weekend.
Julen Lopetegui is expected to make changes to the team he fielded in Barcelona. Óliver Torres will not be able to play as he is not registered for the Champions League. Érik Lamela is suspended following the red card he picked up in the 84th minute in the game against Espanyol. The Sevilla coach will have to reshuffle his frontline and will most likely start new signing Kasper Dolberg for the first time since his arrival.
predict that Lopetegui will start the following XI against Copenhagen: Bono – Carlos Carmona, Tanguy Nianzou, Karim Rekik, Alex Telles – Thomas Delaney, Nemanja Gudelj, Ivan Rakitić – Suso, Kasper Dolberg, Isco.
