Holders Manchester City beat RB Leipzig 3-2 at the Etihad after a stunning second-half comeback to secure top spot in Champions League Group G.
RB Leipzig striker Lois Openda left the Etihad in a stunned silence after scoring two goals inside 40 minutes to leave his side one goal away from usurping City at the summit of the group. A raft of missed City chances only added to the feeling that this would not be the hosts’ night.
Phil Foden, who had been quiet in a central role, set up Erling Haaland after the break before scoring the equaliser with 20 minutes to go. He also had a hand in the winner as Julian Alvarez – a game-changer for City off the bench with Jeremy Doku – finished off a flowing move that involved 18 passes.
City were not themselves for the first half but recovered to avoid going three games without a win. They have secured top spot while Leipzig have to settle for second in Group G.
