Manchester United will be looking to book their spot in the last-16 stage of the Champions League when they face RB Leipzig in Germany on Tuesday night.
The English giants are level on nine points with both Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain in a fascinating Group H and need to avoid defeat at the Red Bull Arena in order to progress to the knockout round.
Leipzig impressively reached the semi-finals of last season’s Champions League before losing to French giants PSG, but they are extremely inexperienced at this level of football – currently competing in just their third group-stage campaign.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side opened their Group H challenge with a 2-0 victory over Istanbul Basaksehir but suffered a shock 5-0 defeat away to United towards the end of October.
Leipzig managed to recover with a 2-1 home win over PSG but then lost the reverse game in Paris to leave themselves in a difficult position in the section ahead of their away game with Basaksehir last week.
The Turkish giants levelled the scores at 3-3 in the latter stages of the clash in Istanbul, but a 92nd-minute winner from Alexander Sorloth moved Nagelsmann’s team onto nine points.
The Red Bulls, who played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday, would qualify for the knockout round if they beat United on Tuesday, although a draw would also be enough if PSG lost to Basaksehir in the section’s other match.
