UEFA Champions League: RB Leipzig vs PSG Head to Head Preview and Prediction
RB Leipzig vs PSG: Head to Head Preview
Mauricio Pochettino barely came out with a victory at home last time they faced RB Leipzig. The German side has not been living up to their expectations in this year’s Champions League as they are yet to score any points in the group. RB Leipzig will be going head to head against PSG once more.
Leipzig would have to do more than little to even make it to the Europa League qualification spot, as they sit on the bottom of the group. On the other hand, the group is led by the Ligue 1 giants, PSG.
Lionel Messi seems to be out of the squad, due to discomfort, even then the team is full of machines.
PSG did not play the best football but they’ve managed to win 2 games and draw 1 in the first 3 fixtures.
Lionel Messi was their star in the Champions League tournament so far but now Neymar Jr. or Kylian Mbappe will have to step up their game. They looked good against Manchester City, the toughest opponent in the group.
PSG will look forward to winning this game before they go into the Eithad stadium to face Manchester City once again.
RB Leipzig has lost to all three of their opponents so far, only putting up a decent performance against PSG. They can use their last game’s momentum into this and try to get at least a point before aiming for a possible win against Club Brugge.

RB Leipzig vs PSG: Recap
It was a dominating start from PSG when they went head to head against RB Leipzig in the first game. Kylian Mbappe used his extreme acceleration to score the opener. PSG slowed down quite a bit from there as they let RB Leipzig come back scoring 2 goals back to back.
That was before Messi decided to shift his gears and score 2 goals to give back PSG the lead. With Messi gone from the squad, PSG will rely heavily on the other superstars in the attack, as they have been in the league.
