8th December 2020 – 21:00, Red Bull Arena, Leipzig
RB Leipzig and Manchester United will face each other in the final round of the Champions League group stage. Both sides will search for crucial points in this clash that can secure them a place in the eight-finals of the competition.
Match Preview & Team News
The hosts put a very good display in Munich last weekend in the Bundesliga, as they snatched a point against Bayern. Although they had a lead twice, the home side will definitely be satisfied with a draw. Emil Forsberg and the lads have been very productive in front of the oppositions’ goal lately. RB Leipzig scored nine times on three occasions, but during the same period, conceded seven goals. Julian Nagelsman’s side is still in the battle for a place in the knockout stage, as they are level with PSG and Manchester United. However, they need to think only about the victory in this game since it is very unlikely that PSG can lose against Istanbul Basaksehir at Parc des Princes. The German side has the weakest head-to-head record in this triangle, and three points for them is the only outcome that can guarantee them a place in the top two.
Manchester United had another poor first-half display, as they trailed 1:0 to West Ham last weekend. However, they needed 30 minutes to turn around the result and book a 3:1 victory. That one was their fourth in a row in the Premier League and lifted them to the 5th spot. The Red Devils are now only five points behind the Spurs, with one game played less. However, they missed the chance to secure a place in the Champions League knockout stage last Wednesday, as they lost to PSG 3:1 at Old Trafford. Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had several excellent chances, they got punished. United’s crucial defeat occurred in Istanbul against Basaksehir, and now, they need to avoid the loss in order to remain in the top two.
