RB Leipzig vs PSG, UEFA Champions League 2020-21, Match Prediction 

RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain lock horns on Wednesday in Group H encounter of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21

Both sides lost against Man United, and they desperately need three points to fancy their chances for the next round. 

Team Preview 

The last edition’s two semifinalists PSG and Leipzig, face each other in the group stage to better their point difference to Man United, who is placed on top of the table with 6 points and will face Istanbul on the same day.  

PSG hosted United in their season opener and suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat, courtesy of Rashford’s late winner. The Ligue 1 champions bounced back with a 2-0 victory over Istanbul, thanks to Kylian Mbappe's brace. PSG still need to work on their game to avoid the early elimination from the competition. Neymar and Di Maria are doubtful for this match, and it would be a big issue for French Outfit. 

Meanwhile, Leipzig is coming off a 5-0 loss against Man Utd at Old Trafford on matchday two as Marcus Rashford scored a second-half hat-trick. Julian Nagelsmann's side earlier defeated Istanbul 2-0, but the poor show in Old Trafford can trouble their next round qualification. They finished in the semifinals the last edition, lost to PSG 3-0 at Lisbon. 

Mukiele re-joined team training on Monday, and we can see his name in the final XI, but he won’t be available for the full 90 minutes. RB Leipzig has only won one of their last five meetings against French opponents in the Champions League, and their last victory came in 2017-18 when they defeated AS Monaco 4-1 in the group stage.
