ISTANBUL BASAKSEHIR VS RB LEIPZIG PREDICTION

Third placed RB Leipzig travel to fourth placed Istanbul Basaksehir with three points separating the two sides in Group H. This represents a chance for the visitors to potentially move up to second place heading into the final matchday with Man Utd and PSG also facing each other on Matchday 5. Leipzig won the reverse fixture between these two sides 2-0 on Matchday 1 and whilst this won’t be an easy task for Julian Nagelsmann’s side away from home, the importance of this game won’t be lost on the Germans and the superior quality within their starting XI should see them through to another crucial three points here.
