Lionel Messi scored his first goal for the club since his move from Barcelona in a memorable 2-0 win over the Premier League champions in Group A but Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had mixed results so far this campaign.
The French side were held by Club Brugge in their Champions League opener while their 100 per cent start to the Ligue 1 season was put to an end by Rennes before the international break.
RB Leipzig have had a difficult start to the season under new manager Jesse Marsch and lost their opening two matches of the Champions League 6-3 to City and 2-1 to Club Brugge. They sit eighth in the Bundesliga table but will be out to avenge their defeat to PSG in the semi-finals of the Champions League two seasons ago.
