Man City 6-3 RB Leipzig: Player ratings

90min

Manchester City eventually saw off a stubborn (if defensively inept) RB Leipzig side to get their 2021/22 Champions League campaign off to a winning start on Wednesday night.

The opening goal arrived through an unlikely source, with centre-back Nathan Ake climbing above two defenders to meet a corner and power a header into the back of the net – via Peter Gulacsi’s fingertips and the crossbar – after a quarter of an hour.

RB Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele inexplicably and inadvertently doubled City’s lead shortly before the half-hour mark, heading Kevin De Bruyne’s dangerous cross past his own keeper.

The French defender went some way to redeeming himself later in the first period, nodding an Emile Forsberg cross back across goal for Christopher Nkunku to head in and pull one back for the Bundesliga side.
