RB Leipzig vs Liverpool: Champions League preview

Liverpool face RB Leipzig in Budapest on the back of three straight Premier League defeats, the English champions’ worst run in the competition since November 2014.

Having already lost to Brighton and Manchester City this month, Jürgen Klopp’s men went down 3-1 to Leicester City on Saturday - a result that saw them end the weekend sixth in the Premier League, 13 points behind leaders City.

Leipzig come into the game in rather better form, having won their last four matches in all competitions, most recently beating Augsburg 2-1 in the Bundesliga on Friday.

They sit second in the German top flight, five points behind top dogs Bayern Munich.

Leipzig and Liverpool’s last-16 first leg is being played in Hungary because the German government has introduced a ban on all travel from the UK, in a bid to curb the spread of a new covid-19 variant that has emerged in Britain.
