RB Leipzig will meet Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday.
RB Leipzig had a fairly solid start to the season, going unbeaten in all competitions but have been rocked with back-to-back losses in their last two games, first to Manchester United in their second match of the Champions League group phase and over the weekend in the Bundesliga where they lost 1-0 away at Borussia Monchengladbach.
They’ve won all four of their home games this season and Julian Nagelsmann will be looking for a response from his charges.
Unlike their opponents, PSG’s start to this season has been quite shaky. They lost their first two Ligue 1 games but have recovered well, racking up seven straight wins to go top of the league. They also lost at home to Manchester United in the first match of the group but bounced back from this with a 2-0 away win at Istanbul Basaksehir in the second group game.
PSG’s defence has generally been solid in their recent games. Their last 5 wins have come in while keeping a clean sheet.
The last time these two teams met was in the semifinals of this competition just three months ago. On that occasion, PSG showed the gulf in class between the two teams and ran out comfortable 3-0 winners then. Not much has changed in terms of personnel since then, although it is reported that PSG may be missing some key players that are racing to be fit for the match. Despite that, PSG have great momentum coming into this game, having won 8 of their last matches in all competitions. RB Leipzig meantime appears to have been rattled by the 5-0 loss to Man United. We fancy PSG still has overall enough quality within their ranks to pile more misery on them and we are backing them to win or draw @ 1.53 with Bet9ja as our initial betting tip.
We anticipate a tight start to the game but the heavens are likely to open up in the second half. PSG have been great 2nd half performers with 7 of their last 8 games coming in that period, including all 3 of their Champions league goals. Leipzig defence collapsed spectacularly late on in the United match, soaking in 4 goals after the 73rd of that game. We can certainly see a lot of the action in this match coming in the se3cond half of the match and we are backing Most Goals 2nd Half @ 1.99 with Bet9ja as our final prediction for the game.
