Boss Pep Guardiola's quest to win the one trophy to have eluded him at City continues as his side travels to the Red Bull Arena.
A quarterfinal spot in Europe's greatest club competition is at stake as RB Leipzig host Man City in the first leg of this last-16 Champions League clash.
The hosts come into this match in strong form, having only lost once since the World Cup break to sit just outside of the UCL qualifying places in Germany's Bundesliga.
While City briefly regained top spot in the English Premier League from Arsenal last week, their recent away form has been patchy at best, with three defeats on the road across all competitions since the start of 2023.
City will be without key men Kevin de Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte for this clash through injury, while Christopher Nkunku and Konrad Laimer are set to make welcome returns from the sidelines for Leipzig.
Below, we'll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.
RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City: When and where?
Leipzig host Man City at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. local time in the UK (3 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. PT in the US, and at 7 a.m. AEST on Thursday, Feb. 23 in Australia).
How to watch the RB Leipzig vs. Man City game online from anywhere using a VPN
If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game -- that's where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it's also a great idea if you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you're streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the Champions League using a VPN
With four variables at play -- your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN -- your experience and success when streaming Champions League matches may vary.
If you don't see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the "search for city or country" option.
If you're having trouble getting the game after you've turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs -- like Roku -- don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you're using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network's sports app, you'll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location.
And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you're using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.

Man City vs. Aston Villa Livestream: How to Watch Premier League Soccer From Anywhere
The reigning champions continue their bid to catch Arsenal in the Premier League title race, as they welcome Villa to the Etihad Stadium.
With a scandal brewing in the background for Man City, manager Pep Guardiola will be keen to get back to on-field matters as his side host Aston Villa this weekend.
Sunday's match at the Etihad comes in the wake of the English Premier League's decision to charge Man City with breaking its financial rules.
The charges added to the gloom around the club following last Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Tottenham, which saw City fail to capitalize on league leaders Arsenal's slip up against Everton the day before.
