RB Leipzig v Benfica Team News

Leipzig have been shimmering this season. A streak of five victories in their most recent matches with a haul of twenty two goals to their name underline their season.

Domestically, they are a point behind the top spot and have only lost once in twelve games. On the European stage, it has been the same story line (W3 D0 L1) and coach Julian Nagelsmann knows he can count on the services of top marksman Timo Werner. The in-form forward has amassed a personal best of sixteen goals this campaign for his club and a further eighteen for his country.

Clearly, Leipzig have all the firepower they need for this encounter and could surely end up with more than the required point.

Benfica travel to the Red Bull Arena rooted at the bottom of their group, with only one win in the four group fixtures they have participated in, accumulating only a third the points of their imminent opposition.

Furthermore, the side has emerged on the losing end in their last four champions league encounters. Bruno Lage’s men will therefore have a mountain to climb in Germany as they seek to stop an already qualified Leipzig side playing to entertain their fans.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Both sides come into this fixture with a number of injuries holding them back.

Leipzig will be without the services of I. Konate (hip Injury), T. Adams (groin injury) and K. Kampal and H. Wolf, both nursing ankle injuries. The side will, however, be hopeful for the returns of N. Mukiele who is expected to be fit for the clash.

The visitors will on the other hand rue missing R. Silva, out with a groin injury and H. Seferovic, who will miss out due to a knee injury. D. Tavares and M. Svilar are doubtful for the side with a thigh and Achilles injury respectively.

RB Leipzig vs Benfica Predictions

The hosts are in scintillating form this season both domestically as well as in Europe. Following a four goal haul at home over their respective league opponents, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will hope to replicate that performance if not better against their European opponents.

With only one point required to fully cement their qualification, Leipzig will go all out in this match to acquire all points. Benfica who are last in the group have very little chance in this match and will be merely participating.
