RB Leipzig vs PSG Prediction and Betting Preview, 18 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-3
Prepare to be bamboozled on Tuesday night when German outfit RB Leipzig lock horns with French giants Paris Saint-Germain for a crunch one-off Champions League semifinal fixture at Estadio da Luz, both sides looking to advance to the finals of the competition.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Semi-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)
While PSG have been completely dominant in the French Ligue 1, clinching the title serially with little or no challenge from any other side, their journey on the European scene has been largely indifferent. Les Parisiens have failed to make their mark as a force to reckon with in the CL.

Having hardly made it past the quarterfinal phases in recent years, PSG supporters will be absolutely delighted by their progress this term. Surely, they will be harboring hopes of lifting this prestigious trophy come the end of the season.

To inscribe their name on this trophy, amongst fellow European giants, Thomas Tuchel will be spurring his boys to keep up their momentum without any dip-in-form. Surely, with complacency out of the way, Les Parisiens should have just enough about themselves to send Leipzig crashing from the competition.

RB Leipzig vs PSG Team News

For a juvenile side founded in 2009, RB Leipzig have certainly wasted no time in announcing their name on the European scene. Impressively, they have also been a dominant force in the German Bundesliga since their promotion in 2016.

Ever since making their bow in top-flight football, the Red Bulls have maintained a top-four spot on the log, often challenging the likes of Bayern Munich and Dortmund for the league title. In fact, they took the bar a tad higher this time around.

Dazzling supporters with their imperious displays early on, RB Leipzig were touted as the side to end Bayern’s monopoly of league title wins. However, a dip-in-form post-lockdown ensured Die Roten Bullen relinquished top-spot, finishing third on the standings.

When it comes to their performances in the Champions League, they have been daunting. Finishing top of Group G, ahead of fellow semifinalists Lyon and Benfica, Die Roten Bullen definitely enjoyed an amazing run in the group phases. Leipzig have been equally outstanding in the knockout rounds.

Taking on Spanish juggernauts Atletico Madrid in the quarterfinals, Julian Nagelsmann masterminded a huge giant killing, registering an emphatic 2-1 win over Los Rojiblancos. With the game tied at 1-1, and headed for extra-time, Adams turned savior inside 88 minutes to secure a late win for Leipzig.

Meanwhile, PSG have been on a roll in the Champions League this season, remaining unbeaten in all their games in the competition so far. For all their exploits, they were made to dig really deep last time out, in a last-eight encounter with Atalanta.

Having been behind for the entire 90 minutes of the game, a late rally from Les Parisiens saw them rise to victory. Make-shift midfielder Marquinhos headed the ball home to bring scores level before Choupo-Moting put the game to bed few minutes later to secure a narrow hard-fought 2-1 win.

Profligacy was to blame for PSG’s struggles against Atalanta, but with Mbappe back in the picture, there is a real sense of belief at the club ahead of this Leipzig game, that they can manage to make it all the way to the final. Surely, nothing can be ruled out.

RB Leipzig vs Paris SG Predictions

Having made it to the latter stages of the Champions League this season, RB Leipzig are not to be treated with a wave of the hand. On paper, PSG look clear favorites for the win. However, their struggles against an out-of-sorts Atalanta side in the last-eight is still very fresh in our memories.

Tuchel’s men are very likely to struggle against this driven Leipzig side here. Also, Les Parisiens will not be assisted by the injuries to influential players like Verratti and Navas. As such, count on Leipzig to pull off another huge upset to mark their first-ever appearance in a CL final.
