Leipzig v Liverpool Betting Preview
RB Leipzig are on a four-game winning run and are currently 2nd in the Bundesliga, four points behind Bayern Munich. The German outfit have only lost once in their last 7 outings in all competitions. Furthermore, they have kept 9 clean sheets in the last 13 matches to suggest that defensive issues have now been solved. Julian Nagelsmann's men have only lost one home game all season but this match will be played at a neutral venue in Budapest, Hungary due to travel restrictions in Germany.
Liverpool are in need of a morale-boosting victory, having won just three and lost six of their last 10 matches in all competitions. The most recent of those defeats - a 3:1 collapse against Leicester on Saturday - saw the current English champions fall 13 points off Man City, having played a game more than the pace setters. The Reds now face a tough challenge to finish in the top-four of the Premier League.
- Since they play on neutral grand, Leipzig are the underdogs here, with Unibet pricing the Bundesliga club to win at 43/20.
- The Draw is available at 13/5 with BetVictor.
- Liverpool are favorites to win the match at 11/8 with Betfair.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
RB Leipzig (3-5-2): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Upamecano, Klostermann; Adams, Sabitzer, Kampl, Olmo, Angelino; Poulsen, Nkunku
This match is expected to come too soon for Emil Forsberg, Konrad Laimer, Benjamin Henrichs and Dominik Szoboszlai. Former Liverpool goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi is likely to start between the sticks while Yussuf Poulsen or Alexander Sorloth are in contention to partner Christopher Nkunku up front. Kevin Kampl is expected to play the anchorman role at the base of the midfield while rumoured Liverpool target Ibrahima Konate could feature from the off in the three men backline.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Henderson, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane
The Merseysiders are without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keïta, James Milner, and Diogo Jota. Jurgen Klopp is expected to keep faith with Alisson Becker despite another mistake at the weekend, while Thiago Alcantara should return to the starting XI. Fabinho will be assessed after missing the Leicester match with a "small muscle issue" but the starting centre back pair should be formed by Jordan Henderson and Ozan Kabak.
Our Leipzig v Liverpool PredictionsWith how things are going for Liverpool, it’s hard to be confident of a win ahead of a game these days. Their problems at the back are a big concern at this level. The neutral venue should give Liverpool a slight advantage over the tie as a whole but we expect the Bundesliga outfit to win the first leg.
