RB Leipzig has to do without national soccer player Benjamin Henrichs in the Champions League tough test against Manchester City. The 26-year-old is suffering from a minor muscle injury, said coach Marco Rose.

On the other hand, Timo Werner is ready for the duel with the defending champions on Wednesday (9 p.m./Dazn). The striker had recently missed two games due to back problems. Dani Olmo is back in training, but is not yet an option.

Leipzig doesn’t have the best memories of City. The last duel so far ended 7-0 in the second leg of the round of 16 of the premier class in March. “A lot of things came together, we were extremely dissatisfied. Also because of the altitude. But we now have a new season and are in a really good mood,” said Rose. His team has been unbeaten in seven games, most recently drawing 2-2 against record champions Bayern Munich.

Manchester is missing two key players in Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva. Rose doesn’t consider the English champions to be noticeably weaker. “We know City’s qualities. We need an absolute top performance and a little luck,” said the 47-year-old. Before the game, Josko Gvardiol, who moved to Manchester in the summer for around 90 million euros, will say goodbye.
