RB Leipzig v PSG, UCL Semi-finals
A mouth-watering Champions League semi-final beckons as RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain lock horns at the Estadio da Luz on Tuesday night.
It has been an eventful season for RB Leipzig. They were neck-and-neck with Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga for much of the season, before fading away at the end and finishing third.
In the Champions League, they have been nothing short of spectacular. They topped group G, then made light work of Tottenham in the round of 16 with a 40-0 aggregate, before producing one of the upsets of the quarter-finals by beating Atletico Madrid 2-1 on Aug 13.
That showed their resolve to move on past the Werner story as goals from Dani Olmo and Tyler Adams booked their ticket to their first-ever semi-final. Pretty impressive for a club that was formed just over 10 years ago.
PSG have dominated the French League over the years and were crowned champions once again at the end of April as the French Football Federation decided to end the Ligue 1 early. They also won the French Cup and the Ligue 1 Cup and are they are therefore in the hunt for a historic quadruple should they win this Champions League.
To be clear, this is the one trophy that matters most to them. They have made significant investments in recent years to try and win it to no avail. This is their first semi-final appearance since 1995.
Their pedigree and mental fortitude has shone through for them this season though as they overcame Dortmund and Atalanta in the last two rounds despite falling behind in both ties.

RB LEIPZIG V PSG MATCH FORECAST AND BETTING TIPS
Leipzig deserve a lot of praise and admiration for their achievements this season. However, they are coming up against a PSG team that has been on a quest for glory in this competition much longer than they have. PSG’s path to this semi has easily been tougher than Leipzig’s. They topped a group that had Real Madrid in it and eliminated Dortmund and Atalanta in very tough ties. With Kylian Mbappe expected to get the nod to start in this game after a 30-minute cameo against Atalanta that saw him provide the assist for the match-winner, we feel PSG tilts the balance in terms of quality and experience at this level and we are backing them to win @ 1.76 with Bet9ja as our initial betting tip here.
The game has goals written all over it. With PSG back to nearly full fitness, they will pose a much more significant challenge to the Leipzig defence than what Atletico presented in the previous round. They have scored 22 goals in the 9 Champions League games they’ve played. Although Neymar failed to score against Atalanta, he did have quite a few chances. With Mbappe starting and possibly Di Maria coming back from suspension, we anticipate that he will get even more opportunities in this match and we are backing him to score at anytime @ 2.00 with Bet9ja betting app as our final tip for this game.
