Man Utd welcome Bundesliga table-toppers RB Leipzig to Old Trafford for a Champions League clash live on BT Sport

Man Utd Champions League

Manchester United face an intimidating clash against RB Leipzig as the Germans travel to Old Trafford for the second round of Champions league fixtures.


United will be hoping to build upon their upset win over group favourites PSG but an unconvincing draw at home to Chelsea over the weekend suggests they may not have it all their own way.

RB Leipzig are flying at the top of the Bundesliga and will be confident of taking all three points away from the Theatre of Dreams.

Man United are yet to win at home this season and with Wednesday night’s opponents conceding just three goals so far in the league, it could be another tough night at Old Trafford.

However, United have proven that they’re more than capable of beating anyone on their day and will be desperate to get back to winning ways at home.

Man Utd v RB Leipzig team news

Man Utd: Anthony Martial is expected to return while Edinson Cavani awaits his first start for his new side.

After his stunning performance against PSG, Axel Tuanzebe could be in line for another start with Alex Telles set to replace Luke Shaw on the left.

RB Leipzig: Having rested several first team players at the weekend, Julian Nagelsmann, for the most part, has a fit and firing squad at his disposal.

He will have to do without Amadou Haidara, however, after the Malian tested positive for coronavirus.

Our prediction: Man Utd v RB Leipzig

The visit of RB Leipzig could prove to be a tall order for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

While there have been flashes of brilliance from United’s stars, they have been hamstrung by inconsistency and could struggle to cope with a Leipzig side brimming with confidence.

RB Leipzig won’t be in any mood for taking prisoners either, and will be eyeing up a massive away day scalp.

Our prediction: Man Utd 1-2 RB Leipzig
