RB Leipzig vs PSG: 5 Talking Points Before Kick Off

RB Leipzig vs PSG: Line-ups

RB Leipzig


PSG Need To Be Careful


The Red Bulls have won eight of their last 15 Champions League games, while they have been victorious in seven of their eight previous knockout European ties, which is a record that might well stand them in good stead as they prepare to take on the French champions.


PSG have struggled to make it past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League in recent years, while they were incredibly dumped out in the last-16 stage of last season’s competition by Manchester United, losing on away goals following a 3-1 home defeat to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.


Leipzig’s squad is in excellent shape at the moment, though, with Ibrahima Konate, who underwent hip surgery last month, their only confirmed absentee heading into the last-four contest.


PSG are set to be without both key midfielder Marco Verratti and number one goalkeeper Keylor Navas for the last-four encounter.


Leipzig deserve a lot of respect for reaching this stage of the competition, but it is difficult to look past PSG in this match. The French champions should have some key players back despite potentially missing Verratti and Navas, and we fancy Tuchel’s side to book their spot in the final with a 2-0 success.
