Manchester United vs. RB Leipzig Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United are keen on making it two wins in a row in their bid for Champions League when they play host to German powerhouse RB Leipzig. The match schedules for Wednesday at the Old Trafford with kickoff at 11 pm.

RB Leipzig traveled to Old Trafford after a successive first 2-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir last week. Manchester United proved all odds stacked against them wrong with a 2-0 win over Ligue 1 champions PSG.

Ole Gunnar continues to divide opinion in the United fanbase. However, the win over PSG is bound to create some confidence for the Norwegian in his bid to retain the job. It remains a hard nut for Gunnar to crack, especially with a heavy fixture on their hands.

The Red Devils clinched all three points at the Parc des Princes thanks to Bruno Fernandez and Marcus Rashford’s goal. It was unfortunate for Martial, who netted an own goal. Tuanzebe showed a superior defense awareness to contain the threat posed by Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Leipzig is yet to suffer any defeat in any competition since their 3-0 loss to PSG in last season’s Champions League semi-finals. Julian Nagelsmann’s side will be heading into the match full of motivation to record a win. Their last encounter in the Bundesliga ended with a 2-1 win over side Hertha BSC.

Manchester United Team News

New signing Edinson Cavani made a home debut for the Red Devils from the bench during their clash with Chelsea. With the back of defensive reinforcements, Ole Gunnar might opt for a back three that could see Tuanzebe come back in the fold.

RB Leipzig Team News

Julian will have to contend with injury woes in his defensive backline, including Marcel Halstenberg, Nordi Mukiele, and Lukas Klostermann. Benjamin Henrichs is likely to fill the right-hand side of the defense in the absence of Mukiele.
