RB Leipzig v Manchester UTD betting preview  

RB Leipzig recoreded a 3-4 win on the road against Basaksehir in the last Champions League clash and showed on Saturday they can compete with the best after a thrilling 3-3 draw away to Bayern Munich. They have a 100 per cent home record this season (W7) but are very vulnerable at the back. They suffered a shock 5-0 defeat away to United towards the end of October and will aim to get their revenge. The home win is backable at 31/20 with STS (with 888sport offering a 14/1 price boost).

Man UTD have won four of their last five matches in all competitions, including a morale-boosting 3-1 victory over West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday. They have scored 13 goals in their five outings in the competition to date. The Red Devils suffered a 1-3 defeat at home against PSG in their previous CL encounter and are risking to fail to qualify for the knockout stages after being in commanding position in the first 4 games. Unibet are pricing Man UTD to win at 41/20, with 888sport boosting the Red Devils' win to 14/1 as well.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups

Highly rated defender Dayot Upamecano is suspended after receiving his third yellow card last time out. The likes of Dani Olmo, Emil Forsberg and Yussuf Poulsen all expected to be start up front with Justin Kluivert and Christopher Nkunku in contention for the remaining berth.

RB Leipzig (4-2-3-1): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Konate, Halstenberg, Angelino; Sabitzer, Kampl; Nkunku, Forsberg, Olmo; Poulsen

Fred will miss the encounter at Red Bull Arena after he was sent off against Paris Saint-Germain last time out. Paul Pogba is unlikely to start following more unhelpful comments from his agent, Mino Raiola, on the eve of this match. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will return to the starting XI after being initially rested over the weekend.

Manchester United (3-4-1-2): De Gea; Lindelof, Maguire, Tuanzebe; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Pogba, Telles; Fernandes; Greenwood, Rashford

RB Leipzig v Manchester UTD Betting Tips  

Man United only need a point to progress to the knockout stage but we don't expect the Red Devils to play in a conservative way. It should be a highly entertaining clash and the BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns. As to the match result, we belive that the Bundesliga side has more chances to get the win, and the 14/1 boost offered by 888sport is a bargain.
