Man City pegged back by Leipzig to leave tie in balance

Manchester City surrendered another lead as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw away to RB Leipzig in their Champions League round-of-16 first leg.

Riyad Mahrez's first-half goal had seemingly set Pep Guardiola's side on their way to the quarter-finals as they dominated the early proceedings in Germany, but Leipzig bounced back and found a deserved equaliser through the head of Josko Gvardiol.

Neither side could find a winner on the night and the tie remains in the balance ahead of the second leg next month. The concern for City is that as against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, they could not capitalise when well placed to finish the contest
