Rb Leipzig were mercilessly destroyed by Man Utd at Old Trafford on matchday two, losing 5-0 after a rudderless execution in which substitute Marcus Rashford scored a second-half cap stunt. Dayot Upamecano, who properly got mass applauses for his exhibitions in this opposition last season, was made to look normal in fact by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s lightning counter assaults.
With both impending rivals level on points having both beaten Istanbul Basaksehir 2-0, this is a huge counterpart for Leipzig in the event that they are to get any opportunity of advancing to the knockout stages for a second progressive season. Nagelsmann will unquestionably require a greatly improved exhibition from his players than when his side lost 3-0 to PSG in August, with Angel Di Maria specifically managing everything that night.
Thomas Tuchel’s side endured destruction to Man Utd themselves, obviously, but in substantially more negligible style with Rashford’s late victor acquiring his side a 2-1 win at Le Parc des Princes. PSG bobbed back on matchday two with a 2-0 win in Istanbul, with Kylian Mbappe twice providing a assist for the loanee Moise Kean in the subsequent half, yet have a lot of work to do to guarantee they don’t neglect to advance to the knockout stages without precedent for the Qatari-possessed time.
Tuchel won’t be supported by the reality Neymar and Di Maria are both dubious for the match, particularly with the pair superb in the triumph over Leipzig in August. Kean and Mbappe may well should be in excellent condition together indeed in the event that they are to make sure about a urgent success.
With the two sides missing key members, we can see an engaging score coax happening here with neither one of the sides wishing to lose ground on one another in the competition to advance to the knockout stages. With Neymar injured, the wellness of Di Maria will be a urgent factor so as to give a-list interface from midfield to assault. Hence, bet on a draw .
