Pep Guardiola Faces an Unusual Dilemma with Rodri Ahead of Man City vs. RB Leipzig Clash

Manchester City faces a dilemma regarding midfielder Rodri’s availability for their upcoming Champions League match against RB Leipzig. Rodri recently served a three-match suspension, two of which City lost, due to an incident in a previous game.

While City manager Pep Guardiola initially downplayed the significance of Rodri’s absence, the recent losses have highlighted the importance of the midfielder to the team. Without Rodri, the defense has been more exposed, and City has struggled to maintain possession and control games as effectively.

Mateo Kovacic, who filled in for Rodri in the last match against Wolves, did not perform well in the defensive midfielder role. His passing was sloppy, and he attempted risky runs that didn’t pay off. Kovacic’s poor pass even led to an opposition goal.

With Rodri still suspended for the upcoming match against RB Leipzig and the crucial game against Arsenal on the horizon, Guardiola faces a challenging decision. He must determine who will fill Rodri’s role in these matches. Options are limited, and none are ideal, which makes the decision even more complicated.

One possible approach could be to keep Rodri on the bench for the RB Leipzig game and use the opportunity to test different players in his position, preparing for the match against Arsenal. While City’s group stage position allows for some experimentation, losing three consecutive matches could harm the team’s confidence.

Ultimately, Guardiola faces an unusual and tricky dilemma regarding Rodri’s availability and how to best handle his absence in the upcoming matches.
