One of the most entertaining Champions League last sixteen match-ups is the clash between RB Leipzig and Liverpool, with both teams wanting to play attacking football and score goals as part of their overall success.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won the European Cup two seasons ago, while Julian Nagelsmann steered Leipzig to the semi-finals of this competition last term and there could be two explosive matches starting with the encounter at the Red Bull Arena.

Liverpool Favourites to Beat Leipzig in Champions League

The visitors are trading at 5/4 to win this first leg in Germany and they clearly have a stronger European pedigree than their opponents, with Liverpool going deep in European competition ever since Klopp took charge.

By the time this match is played, the manager will hope for a relatively clean bill of health squad-wise and our prediction is that they’ll look to get on the front foot in search of away goals to make their task easier when it comes to qualifying for the quarter finals.

Diogo Jota is having a fine season at Anfield since signing from Wolves and the Portuguese forward should provide an option along with Salah, Mane and Firmino, although Liverpool don’t need to win this first leg.

Can Leipzig Repeat Win Over Manchester United Against Liverpool?

Our main betting tip is betting on both teams to score despite the relatively short price. This is because Leipzig like to adopt an attacking approach and they stormed into a 3-0 lead against Manchester United in December before winning 3-2 and reaching the knockout stage at the expense of their opponents.

Nagelsmann has crafted a strong team who are mixing it with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, with Emil Forsberg possibly the standout player in midfield, although the way in which they move the ball at pace could put Liverpool on the back foot.

We’re anticipating a high-scoring clash and will bet accordingly on a fairly safe pick, with Liverpool looking for that vital away goal and knowing that the Leipzig defence could be vulnerable.
