RB Leipzig vs Liverpool: Preview of the Champions League
Liverpool will face RB Leipzig in Budapest after three consecutive defeats in the Premier League, the worst run of the England champions since November 2014.
I’ve already lost to Brighton and Manchester City this month, Jürgen Klopp’s men went 3-1 against Leicester City on Saturday – a result that saw them finish the weekend in sixth place in the Premier League, 13 points behind leader City.
Leipzig entered the game in somewhat better shape, who have won their last four games in all competitions, beating Augsburg 2-1 in the Bundesliga on Friday.
They sit second in the German top flight, five points behind top dogs Bayern Munich.
The first leg from Leipzig and Liverpool is is played in Hungary because the German government has banned all travel from the UK in an effort to curb the spread of a new covid-19 variant that has emerged in Britain.
