RB Leipzig vs Manchester United Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for RB Leipzig vs Manchester United Predictions
RB Leipzig is third in the group, and if PSG can beat Istanbul Basaksehir at home, the Germans will have to win this game to qualify. Being level on points won’t help them due to their inferior head-to-head records against both United and PSG. Of their nine points in this group, six have come against the Turkish side. They needed a 92nd-minute winner to get the away win in Istanbul. The other three came from a 2-1 home win over PSG after going behind in the sixth minute. Four of their last five home games in this competition have been won, and another one here will take them into the knock-out stages of the Champions League. Saturday saw them nearly get a win at Bayern Munich, leading 3-2 before finally drawing 3-3. Dani Olmo creates a lot of problems with his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in a one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles. Marcel Sabitzer is a real football pearl, and it is a pleasure to watch this guy, he is a real team leader.
Manchester United top the group on nine points, ahead of PSG and their final opponents RB Leipzig, also both on the same points total. They only top the table on head-to-head goal difference, mainly due to their 5-0 home win over Leipzig. That’s a key result because United only need to avoid defeat in this match to reach the last sixteen for the first time since 2018. It’s been a mixed bag of results for United, not just in this group but all season. They can win at PSG, thrash Leipzig at home, but lose at Istanbul Basaksehir and then be beaten at home by PSG. The surprise loss in Istanbul is the only one of their last nine away games in all competitions that they haven’t won. Three of their previous five Champions League away matches have been lost. The other two were away wins at PSG. Saturday saw a typical United performance as they played badly in the first half and trailed West Ham 1-0 at the break. Then, three goals in 13 minutes took them to another away win in the Premier League. Scott McTominay has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Leipzig is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Manchester United will meet the expectations and deliver a win.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
