Liverpool vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Liverpool head into the game with an eight-game winless run in the Premier League home matches, topped by six consecutive losses at Anfield as of late this season. Since they are not hosting at Anfield, the change of air will probably aid Jurgen Klopp and his men in the second leg.
Leipzig warmed up for Wednesday’s contest with another convincing Bundesliga display at the weekend when the German title challengers cruised to an impressive 3-0 win at Freiburg.
The challenge would then be to make up the two-goal deficit, and that could be where they end up falling short against a Liverpool side which, despite such dreadful recent form, has only conceded four goals in their last five outings.
