LIVERPOOL VS RB LEIPZIG PREDICTION

Liverpool will be delighted to turn their attention towards Champions League matters when considering their awful recent form in the Premier League. The Reds have lost six of their last seven domestic fixtures and Jurgen Klopp’s men will be desperate to ensure such a woeful run of results doesn’t extend to European competition, with Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig their opponents once again in this round of 16 second leg. When considering that Liverpool have lost their last six matches at Anfield, it may prove a blessing in disguise that this encounter has been moved once again to the Puskás Arena in Budapest due to Covid-19 isolation guidelines. The first leg between these two sides saw the English champions wind up 0-2 winners and Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig have a daunting task ahead of them to turn this tie on its head. However, whilst Liverpool have proven themselves as dangerously potent on the counter attack, Leipzig are in outstanding form offensively having won their last four games in all competitions, scoring 11 goals in the process. The German side are expected to control the tempo of this contest and against a Liverpool team suffering from numerous defensive injuries, Leipzig will be afforded opportunities in front of goal. Nagelsmann’s men have a real chance of pulling off a memorable comeback here and whatever the outcome of this tie, RB Leipzig should be favoured draw no bet across the 90 minutes.
