RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain will battle it out at the Estadio da Luz on Tuesday for a place in the UEFA Champions League final .

Absentees: Marco Verratti

RB Leipzig vs PSG: Prediction

RB Leipzig have played some fearless football to stitch up a fairy tale story to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their short history.

But on Tuesday night, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will have their task cut out as they face one of Europe’s most potent attacking trios in the form of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Mauro Icardi.


PSG, meanwhile, will surely fancy their chances against the German outfit. If the French champions bring their A-game to Lisbon on Tuesday, they will have a great chance of reaching the Champions League final for the first time in their history.


With all that being said, this season’s Champions League has thrown up some unexpected outcomes, and PSG have to be on guard against a free-spirited RB Leipzig side at the Estadio da Luz.

RB Leipzig vs PSG final verdict: 1-3
