    Great Game on the Cards Between Manchester United and RB Leipzig

    There are several games to look forward to on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League. Arguably the match of the night takes place at Old Trafford as Manchester United host RB Leipzig in Group H. The home team come into the match sitting second in the group on 3 points while the visitors are top of the group with the same number of points but a superior goal difference.

    Manchester United started their 2020/21 Champions League campaign with an excellent 2-1 victory at Paris Saint-Germain. The Red Devils took the lead in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot but an own goal by Anthony Martial allowed PSG back into the game 10 minutes into the second half. However, Manchester United continued to press for the winning goal and Marcus Rashford struck in the final minutes to seal maximum points.

    Unfortunately for Manchester United, they failed to hit the heights of their win in Paris when playing Chelsea at home on the weekend. The match ended in a dull 0-0 draw and Chelsea could easily have been given a penalty.

    Manchester United have been struggling to win games at home this season and they have yet to pick up a victory in 3 attempts. In addition to the draw against Chelsea on the weekend Manchester United have been defeated by Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur.

    Trend show they have found it difficult to win games at home in the Champions League having picked up just a single victory in their last 6 at home. There have been under 2.5 goals scored in each of the last 5 Champions League matches at Old Trafford.

    RB Leipzig had little trouble in overcoming İstanbul Başakşehir at home in their first Champions League group game of the season. They took the lead after only 16 minutes and doubled their advantage 4 minutes later. There were no further goals in the game but RB Leipzig were comfortable throughout the 90 minutes.

    The Germans club travel to England sitting top of the Bundesliga. They have won each of their last 4 games in all competitions including a 2-1 home victory over Hertha Berlin at the weekend.

    RB Leipzig are undefeated in their last 5 away Champions League matches including victories over Monaco, Benfica, Zenit, and Tottenham Hotspur. RB Leipzig have scored at least 2 goals in 4 of those 5 games.

    Team news and Manchester United will be without the injured Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard. Anthony Martial should start up-front as he did not feature on the weekend due to suspension. Donny van de Beek will be hoping to start in midfield.

    RB Leipzig travel with several players unavailable due to injury. Fabrice Hartmann, Konrad Laimer, Lukas Klostermann, Nordi Mukiele, and Tyler Adams are among the injured party.

    The pressure will be on Manchester United to play attacking football in this game and that could play into the hands of the visitors. Expect to see both teams find the back of the net but it could be the Germans who come away with the victory.
