Manchester United vs RB Leipzig: Predictions and Betting Tips as Red Devils will be looking to make it back-to-back wins at the start of their 2020-21 Champions League campaign when they welcome RB Leipzig on Wednesday night.
Young prodigy Nagelsmann guided the German club to the Champions League semi-finals last season, so United cannot rest on their laurels after one impressive win – especially after drawing a blank against Chelsea.
Date, time, and venue
Manchester United vs RB Leipzig is scheduled for an 8 pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
The match will be behind closed doors at Old Trafford with no fans due to being present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard remain unavailable due to injury, though Anthony Martial is available while serving a domestic suspension.
Solskjaer’s three-man defence of Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof, and Luke Shaw worked well in Paris, though Harry Maguire is back and is likely to start.
The United boss could switch things up with the likes of Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, and Nemanja Matic all on the bench against Chelsea, while Donny van de Beek may get a rare start.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
The two teams have yet to face each other in an official Uefa competition.
Prediction: Man United 1-1 RB Leipzig
Solskjaer’s side deserved their win against PSG, though Leipzig will surely look to take the game to a team that has yet to win at home this season.
United would probably privately have gladly taken four points from their opening two games, and a draw could be on the cards if neither team decides to open things up too early.
