Liverpool vs Leipzig Predictions


Liverpool have been poor domestically in front of goal, making this encounter all the more tense. The Reds just need a draw to progress at the expense of RB Leipzig, so my tip is under 2.5 goals in Budapest.

  • Liverpool have lost 6 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Liverpool are undefeated in 6 of their last 7 matches (UEFA Champions League).
  • Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in 10 of their last 11 matches (UEFA Champions League).
  • Leipzig have won 8 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Leipzig have lost 4 of their last 8 matches (UEFA Champions League).

Head to Head


The first ever meeting between RB Leipzig and Liverpool took place in the first leg.

Liverpool ran out 2-0 victors in Budapest, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane finding the back of the net.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool are in poor form, losing six of their last eight matches in all competitions. The only wins in that run came against Leipzig in the Champions League and at Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Jürgen Klopp’s side are struggling to score goals and even playing at Anfield is having no positive effect.

Liverpool’s last two matches have been at Anfield, 1-0 defeats to Chelsea and Fulham.

Liverpool are missing injured centre backs Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip with Ozan Kabak doubtful. 

Midfielder Jordan Henderson is injured and forward Roberto Firmino is doubtful.

Leipzig Form


Leipzig are in great form, winning eight of their last nine matches in all competitions. The only blip in that run was a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side returned to the Bundesliga with a 3-0 win at Hertha Berlin and 3-2 home win against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Leipzig won 2-0 at home against Wolfsburg in the German Cup quarter-finals. The Wolves missed a penalty with Yussuf Poulsen and Hee-Chan Hwang taking advantage.

Leipzig’s last match was a 3-0 win at Freiburg. It was a comfortable victory with Christopher Nkunku, Alexander Sørloth and Emil Forsberg on target.
