Man Utd travel to Germany to take on RB Leipzig in do-or-die Champions League clash live on BT Sport.


Manchester United travel to Germany for a do-or-die clash with RB Leipzig in the pick of this week’s Champions League fixtures.


United, who only need a point to secure safe passage to the knockout stages, will need to be at their absolute best to ensure a nervous evening does not end in heartbreak.

Leipzig, however, could sniff a chance of an upset and, on what promises to be a frosty night in Germany, will be an awfully tough nut to crack.

RB Leipzig v Man Utd team news

RB Leipzig:

The suspension of star-defender Dayot Upamecano will come as a massive blow for the German side.

However, manager Julian Nagelsmann did manage to give key players Dani Olmo, Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Halsenberg a bit of a rest at the weekend in what could be considered a definite bonus for the home team.

Man Utd:

Following his commanding performance v West Ham over the weekend, Paul Pogba is likely to replace the suspended Fred in the starting XI.

With Anthony Martial almost certain to miss out with a groin strain and Edinson Cavani struggling with a niggle, Mason Greenwood looks set to lead the line alongside Marcus Rashford.

Our prediction: RB Leipzig v Man Utd

It really is now or never for both sides on Tuesday night.

Leipzig, who have done remarkably well to haul themselves back from the brink and into their current position, will certainly not be in the mood for handing out any favours.

Despite needing only a draw, it still promises to be a nervy night for Man U fans.

Our prediction: RB Leipzig 1-2 Man Utd
