RB Leipzig defeated Manchester City 1-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Both teams had chances to win the game but had to settle for a draw. The highlight of the match was undoubtedly Gvardiol's equalizer, as he timed his run into the box perfectly and powerfully headed past Ederson to seal a well-deserved point for RB Leipzig.
