RB Leipzig hosts Manchester United at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in a key fixture from Group H of the Champions League

RB Leipzig hosts Manchester United at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in a key fixture from Group H of the Champions League. Let’s see what this game is all about in the next few paragraphs.

The final round in Group H is going to be a dramatic affair. Three teams are having the same amount of points before the conclusion – Manchester United, PSG and RB Leipzig. All of them have 9 points won so far. And all three of them have the chance to reach the 1/8-finals of the competition.

Because of their 0-5 defeat against Manchester United at the Old Trafford, RB Leipzig need to win here in order to progress. The Red Bulls are perfectly aware with the situation, so we must expect to see Julian Nagelsmann’s team fighting only for the three points. They know that if they make a draw most likely it’d mean saying goodbye to the Champions League.

Last week Leipzig achieved a dramatic, but critical 4-3 win in Turkey against Istanbul Basaksehir. Until the 92th minute it was a draw at the Fatih Terim Stadium, but the Germans took the win with a very late goal from Alexander Sorloth.

Manchester United are leaders in this group before the final round, but a loss in Leipzig would send them to third place in the final standings. If they want to win the group, United must take the three points at the Red Bull Arena.

During the weekend the Red Devils made their general repetition for this key game in Leipzig. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team faced West Ham in the Premier League and secured a 3-1 win in London. The Hammers actually opened the score, but United turned it around with goals from Pogba, Greenwood and Rashford. It was a very solid win for Manchester United.

That’s our preview for the Champions League game between RB Leipzig and Manchester United on Tuesday. One of these two teams will progress in the competition and most likely one of them will say goodbye.
