RB Leipzig vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool will be hoping to take advantage of the first leg of this Champions League tie being played on neutral territory, but their recent collapse suggests they could be in for a difficult time against a RB Leipzig side in excellent shape.
The German outfit have been denied home advantage and the neutral venue should give Liverpool a slight advantage over the tie as a whole, but the form book firmly points at a Leipzig victory in this match.
Injury problems continue to torment Klopp and, after losing five of their last seven matches in all competitions, backing the in form Leipzig to take a first leg lead looks sensational value.
