The teams are about to face each other for the very first time in a European competition. However, they have once met in a friendly, back in 2014. Then, the Germans had won with a 4-2 scoreline.

RB Leipzig vs Paris Saint-Germain Prediction

PSG’s impressive attack – boosted by the return of Mbappe – and resolute backline makes them deserved favourites and the best value for this comes on the Asian Handicap.

bet365 offer 2.020 on PSG winning with a -0.5, -1.0 handicap, which will pay out in full if the Ligue 1 side win by two clear goals, whilst half the stake will be returned and the other half will win if they are victorious by exactly one goal.

RB Leipzig vs Paris Saint-Germain Team news

Kylian Mbappe was fit enough to play 30 minutes against Atalanta following a heavy ankle sprain and will hope to return to Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI here.

However, full-back Layvin Kurzawa is expected to remain sidelined due to a thigh issue, while midfielder Marco Verratti is still struggling with a calf injury.

First-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas had to be substituted during the latter stages of the quarter-final with a hamstring problem and is considered doubtful, with ex-Fulham loanee Sergio Rico potentially set to deputise once more.
