PSG – RB Leipzig
It’s time for even more soccer predictions for this week because PSG will host RB Leipzig in the French capital in a match from Group H of the Champions League. Let’s get it done, shall we?
We can’t forget to mention that this group is one of the most interesting ones since the beginning of the group stage. All of the four teams have their chance to reach the knockout phase and this is marvelous. Right now Manchester United and RB Leipzig are occupying the first two spots with 6 points each while PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir are following with 3 points each.
Last season RB Leipzig reached the 1/2-finals of the Champions League for a first time in their history. Now they are motivated to reach the knockout phase at least. The Germans suffered a heavy defeat against Manchester United at the Old Trafford, but in their next game they secured a crucial 2-1 win over PSG in Leipzig. This is the win which currently puts them ahead of the French club.
PSG’s manager Thomas Tuchel is aware that for this club it’s not an option to leave the Champions League after the group stage. Tuchel also knows that most likely he’d get sacked if he doesn’t reach the 1/8-finals. This puts him under a serious pressure at the moment. The Champions League is the absolute priority for PSG who reached the final last season.
These are our soccer predictions for this week for the Champions League fixture between PSG and RB Leipzig at the Parc des Princes. For both teams the three points are decisive here – RB Leipzig could increase their lead in front of the French side, while PSG need to catch up with the others. Two weeks ago Julian Nagelsmann’s team took the win, but let’s see how PSG are going to respond to this.
