Reason For RB Leipzig vs PSG Predictions

  • PSG have scored in 33 consecutive Champions League matches.
  • However, Les Parisiens have conceded in 17 of their last 20 Champions League knockout ties.
  • RB Leipzig have scored in 13 of their 15 games in this competition but have only kept three clean sheets.
  • Neymar has scored 16 goals in 20 Ligue 1 and Champions League appearances this season, including three in his last four in this competition.

PSG leave it late to extend Champions League scoring record

When RB Leipzig faced off with PSG in their only meeting to date, Marquinhos scored an own goal late on to seal a 4-2 win for the German club in a pre-season friendly but, on Wednesday, Marquinhos was the hero of the hour as he notched a 90th minute equaliser to keep them in the game against underdogs Atalanta.

He wasn’t the only saviour of Paris though. Stoke reject Eric Choupo-Moting went to to seal a dramatic injury time turnaround to send PSG to their first Champions League Semi Final in 25 years, but they will have to improve if they are to make it all the way to the final.

PSG were second best for large periods of the game and it was a bitterly undeserved defeat for Champions League debutants Atalanta, although at 1-0 against a side that have scored in an incredible 33 consecutive Champions League matches it was never likely to be the deciding goal.

The Parisians, who boast the two most expensive players in the world up front, may be devastating in attack, but they’re equally fragile at the back when they face top-tier teams. They have conceded in 17 of their last 20 Champions League knockout ties and are likely to need more than a single goal to get the better of their ambitious opponents.

RB Leipzig’s continue rise through the ranks

RB Leipzig made their first ever Champions League appearance in 2017 as they played out a 1-1 stalemate with Monaco and, under three years later, the Red Bull owned club are already taking aim at their first ever Champions League Final.

Even without the departed Timo Werner, RB Leipzig picked up a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid last week to follow on from that 4-0 aggregate thrashing of Spurs in March. They have lost just one of their last 17 competitive matches and their only Champions League defeat this season came at the hands of fellow semi-finalists Lyon.

One for the neutrals in Lisbon

Die Roten Bullen have scored in 13 of their 15 historic Champions League matches and should be able to breach this fragile PSG back line but, with just three clean sheets in the competition and facing the scoring machine of Les Rouge et Bleu, both teams to score is certainly the pick of the match here.

PSG undoubtedly looked a little below par against Atalanta and could find it difficult against RB Leipzig. Two of Leipzig’s last five Champions League games have ended in a 2-2 draw, and PSG also played out a 2-2 stalemate in Madrid back in November, so that’s our choice for a correct score prediction.

Neymar remains PSG’s main attraction

PSG boast the two most expensive players in the world in their attacking force and either one of them are great choices for an anytime goalscorer prediction, but we’re going with the £200m man Neymar.

The Brazilian has been plagued by injury and off-field issues over the past couple of seasons, but he remains the standout player among this PSG squad. He has scored 16 goals in 20 appearances in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season and provided another nine assists.

He set up Marquinhos for his equaliser against Atalanta and looked like the only man to provide any spark for PSG that game. With three goals in his last four Champions League appearances, we’re backing him to find his way onto the scoresheet.
