RB Leipzig vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 4 November 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig.
The most anticipated match this Wednesday in UEFA Champions League round three is happening in Germany. RB Leipzig welcomes PSG, and judging by the results so far, these two teams will battle for the second spot in this group.
Both sides were defeated by Manchester United, so another loss would significantly lower the playoffs chances.
Leipzig are not doing so well lately, losing big match to Moenchengladbach during the weekend, while PSG consolidated in Ligue 1 after a bit shaky start.
As expected, visitors are labelled as warm favorites for the win at 2.15 odds.
RB Leipzig vs PSG Head-to-head
These two teams have met only once in history, and it happened relatively recently on UCL tournament in August. PSG won the match 3-0 thanks to the goals of Di Maria, Bernat and Marquinhos and advanced to the grand finals.
Leipzig are having negative score when it comes to all-time duels against French teams, having won only two out of seven, while losing three.
PSG on the other hand have decent success against German clubs, winning 11 out of 19 matches and scoring total of 31 goals.
RB Leipzig vs PSG Prediction
Departure of Timo Werner had a big impact on RB Leipzig’s efficiency. On the other hand, it seems like they did phenomenal job in scouting and brining Dani Olmo from Dinamo Zagreb. This youngster has been constantly improving for years now and might play big role in this team soon.
Leipzig are currently 3rd on Bundesliga table after losing to M’gladbach with 13 points, two behind the BVB/Bayern duo. The Bulls have great results when it comes to matches at their arena – four wins in a row against Mainz, Schalke, Istanbul Basaksehir and Hertha Berlin with total goal difference of 11-1.
Home loss to Manchester United did come as a shock for PSG who were in a great shape. However, they bounced back and won three games in a row, beating Dijon, Istanbul Basaksehir and Nantes consecutively, while keeping clean sheets in all encounters.
We believe the best way to approach this match is through the goals market, considering how aggressive both teams enjoy to play. Neymar JR is sidelined for at least four more weeks due to groin strain.
