What channel is RB Leipzig v PSG on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news

RB Leipzig face PSG in the Champions League semi-finals live on BT Sport tonight.

RB Leipzig PSG

The Champions League has thrown up plenty of curveballs this season, leading to a highly-charged RB Leipzig v PSG semi-final encounter.

Neither side will have been fancied to reach this stage of the competition, particularly Bundesliga side Leipzig who were only formed 11 years ago.

Their meteoric rise led them to Julian Nagelsmann, their 33-year-old boss, who has worked wonders with the team in leading them this far.

However, Nagelsmann’s biggest test lies ahead, in the shape of keeping Neymar and Kylian Mbappe silenced.

Neymar endured a literal and figurative hit-and-miss outing against Atalanta in the quarter-finals. He spurned several chances with erratic finishing, but his general play had pulses racing among fans and neutrals watching from home.

Mbappe was nursing an injury in the last round but will hope to feature more heavily in this one.

RB Leipzig v PSG team news

RB Leipzig: Ibrahima Konate is out with an injury, while new signings Hwang Hee-Chan and Benjamin Henrichs are of course ineligible to play.

Nagelsmann could name an unchanged XI to the one that toppled Atletico Madrid, though goal hero Tyler Adams will be chomping at the bit for a start following his dramatic winner in the last round.

PSG: Sergio Rico is likely to come in for Keylor Navas between the sticks after the former Real Madrid keeper went off with a thigh injury during the Atalanta clash.

Marco Verratti is 50:50 to feature but if he does, it will likely be from the bench. Mbappe is fit to start, while Angel Di Maria is back from suspension and vying for a place in the XI.

Our prediction: RB Leipzig v PSG

This has all the makings of a classic despite being a Champions League semi-final tie without the traditional elite involved.

In Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria, PSG have plenty of firepower. In Dayot Upamecano, RB Leipzig have an exceptional defensive talent who will be licking his lips at the chance of stopping them.

Leipzig played some neat football against Atletico and could become the new Ajax, bringing through younger players, selling on at high prices, and occasionally enjoying a deep run through the Champions League, but it’s just too hard to look past PSG’s all-star frontline.

Our prediction: RB Leipzig 1-2 PSG
