RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain are both looking for their second Champions League win of the campaign when they meet on Wednesday night.
RB Leipzig lost 5-0 at Old Trafford last Wednesday but are 11/8(2.38)favourites with bet365 to bounce back with victory.
This is a rematch of one of last season’s semi-finals which PSG won 3-0 and the Ligue 1 champions are 15/8 (2.88)to emerge victorious in this clash as well.
A draw would keep both sides in contention ahead of the rematch in three weeks and that is priced at 5/2(3.50).
The Bundesliga outfit are without Marcel Halstenberg, Fabrice Hartmann, Lucas Klostermann and Konrad Laimer, meaning Julian Nagelsmann may have some shuffling to do ahead of Wednesday.
PSG have plenty of high-profile absences with Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi, Leandro Paredes, Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler, Neymar, Juan Bernat and Alexandre Letellier all out, whilst Angel Di Maria is doubtful.
Although PSG are missing some of their most talented attackers in the likes of Mbappe, Neymar and Icardi, the in-form Moise Kean still boasts plenty of firepower with four goals in his last three appearances.
If Di Maria is able to prove his fitness then that is still a fearsome front three, and his deputy Pablo Sarabia offers plenty that RB Leipzig’s struggling defence may not be able to deal with.
Nagelsmann’s men have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last three matches and confidence may be low after that 5-0 drubbing by Man United was followed up with a 1-0 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend.
PSG still have a formidable team despite the multitude of injuries, and bet365’s price of 11/8(2.38)on Kean to extend his strong scoring run looks worthy,especially with the on-loan Everton man likely to be on penalty duty.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
