RB Leipzig double chance against Manchester United 8/13 for Wednesday’s Champions League showdown

Competition: Champions League

Market: RB Leipzig double chance

Odds: 8/13 @ 888sport

Looking to cause a Champions League upset on Wednesday night, last season’s semi-finalists RB Leipzig will make the trip to an empty Old Trafford.

Starting with the hosts, while Manchester United might have shocked many as they grabbed a late winner away in Paris last week, the former Premier League champions have continued to show some rather glaring issues on home soil. Eventually playing out what was an incredibly uneventful 0-0 stalemate against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, the Reds have now failed to win any of their last five straight top-flight appearances on home soil, a run highlighted by thumping defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Tottenham earlier in the season. With it appearing that the pressure still firmly remains on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shoulders, it should also be noted that United were previously hit with back-to-back Champions League defeats at Old Trafford.

As for the visitors, while RB Leipzig might have been hugely disappointed to have seen PSG end their Champions League adventure in the semi-finals over the summer, the German outfit have bounced back in some style. Finding a way to the top of the Bundesliga table and the mood in Julian Nagelsmann’s camp at a real high, the Red Bulls find themselves in the midst of a four-match winning run across all competitions, including opening up this year’s European campaign with a 2-0 win at home against Istanbul Basaksehir last week. Showing no signs of fatigue after watching the likes of Timo Werner move on over the summer, don’t be surprised to see RB Leipzig leave Old Trafford with something to show for themselves on Wednesday night.
