Liverpool vs RB Leipzig Preview
The Kops are on the worst run ever under Jurgen Klopp, losing 3 consecutive games against Brighton, Manchester City and Leicester City respectively, to lose ground in the title race. Liverpool look to win the elite European trophy, their only hope of winning some silverware for the season. The 2020/21 campaign for Liverpool has been plagued by injuries, inconsistent performances and lack of goals, and cannot afford to lose the game against RB Leipzig.
Julian Nagelsmann and his team would be looking to take advantage of an inconsistent Liverpool side, especially being on a good run in the Bundesliga and a 2-1 victory over Augsburg. Leipzig have been a dominant side in the UEFA Champions League, being the last season’s semifinalists and coming through a tough group which included the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain.
Liverpool vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Liverpool is expected to win this tie, due to their prior experience and their willingness to win silverware this season after getting knocked out from the other competitions. However, RB Leipzig are in the game to win it, posing an extremely difficult challenge for the Kops to win the two legged tie.
