Reigning English champions Liverpool play host to RB Leipzig this Wednesday with a 2-0 advantage in the Champion League Round of 16.
Enjoy a closer look at both teams and check out some of the latest Liverpool vs RB Leipzig betting options.
LIVERPOOL VS RB LEIPZIG BETTING
Liverpool line up for the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 fixture enjoying a two-goal advantage over their opponents, courtesy of quick strikes from Mohamed Salah – who is at 9/10 (1.90) to find the back of the net again, and Sadio Mane who is at 8/5 (2.60) to score this Wednesday.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to talk about Liverpool’s campaign without mentioning the absence of Virgil van Dijk and their defensive woes. Without the presence of the Dutch centre-back securing and organising their backline, Jürgen Klopp’s side have more than doubled their losses in the league this season. However, this is altogether a different story in Europe where The Reds remain a stalwart team, topping Group D with four wins out of six games.
With the focus of their season likely to shift towards Champions League glory, Liverpool will be looking to capitalise on their advantage and progress into the latter stages of the competition they won in 2019.
It might be a cliche, but come this Wednesday, RB Leipzig will be ready to prove that a 2-0 advantage is in fact the most dangerous lead in football.
Last years’ semi-finalists have enjoyed a season of improvement. Domestically, RB Leipzig have closed the gap with the current Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich to only two points. Internationally, the German side qualified from the Champions League Group Stage on equal points with PSG – winning four out of their six games.
Although they go into their fixture at a disadvantage, Julian Nagelsmann will have his team itching to show off their talents in front of an international audience, and quite possibly steal the headlines from Premier League champions.
Die Roten Bullen’s midfield general and captain, Marcel Sabitzer is measured at 13/5 (3.60) to add another goal to his tally and make life difficult for Liverpool this midweek.
