RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain will both be attempting to reach the Champions League final for the first time in their respective histories when they lock horns in the semi-finals on Tuesday night.
PSG’s 2-1 victory over Atalanta BC saw them book their spot in the final four, while Leipzig overcame Atletico Madrid 24 hours later to ensure that they would be present in the semi-finals.
Both teams were impressive in their respective quarterfinal victories and can book a place in the Champions League final with a victory.
Reason for RB Leipzig vs. PSG’s predictions:
- PSG have scored in 33 consecutive Champions League matches.
- Les Parisiens have conceded in 17 of their last 20 Champions League knockout ties.
- RB Leipzig have scored in 13 of their 15 games in this competition but have only kept three clean sheets.
- Neymar has scored 16 goals in 20 Ligue 1 and Champions League appearances this season, including three in his last four in this competition.
Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig have played only one friendly against each other in 2014. The game ended in a 4-2 victory with the Germans.
RB Leipzig is one of the dark horses of the Champions League at the moment and reached the first semi-final in its history after a Julian Nagelsmann masterclass handed the side a historic victory against Atletico Madrid.
Two of Leipzig’s last five Champions League games have ended in a 2-2 draw, and PSG also played out a 2-2 stalemate in Madrid back in November.
Les Parisiens are the dominant force in French football.
The German team plays as a cohesive unit and outplayed Atletico Madrid last week. The stage is set for an exciting fixture as Paris Saint-Germain tries to overcome a feisty RB Leipzig outfit and reach its first Champions League final.
Prediction: Over 0.5 @ 1.83
