UEFA Youth League: EDS v RB Leipzig U-19s (Kick-off 15:00)
Champions League: City v RB Leipzig (Kick-off 20:00)
Europe is the focus as City prepare to launch our Champions League and UEFA Youth League campaigns.
The attention is first focused on Brian Barry-Murphy’s Elite Development Squad who kick off our UYL group stages at home to RB Leipzig’s Under-19s.
The City youngsters have made a fine start to the defence of our PL2 title and will be seeking to transform that excellent domestic form onto the continental stage.
Then the spotlight is very much trained on Pep Guardiola’s first team as City open up in Group A of the Champions League with a home fixture against RB Leipzig.
City, of course, were finalists in last season’s Champions League and we will be straining every sinew this term in a bid to try and go one better though the Bundesliga visitors – who currently lie 12th in the German top flight - will present stern opposition.
You can also tune in to Matchday Live one hour before kick-off for all of the best City-centric build-up, with special guest Shaun Goater joining Natalie Pike on all digital platforms.
