Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig Tip 1: European Juggernauts

Europe, Champions League, Wednesday, March 6th, 20:00 (UK)

Real Madrid are a juggernaut. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 5.50 to win the Champions League and 2.75 to reach the final. They already have one foot in the next round. I expect them to get the job done against underwhelming travellers. The Spanish giants are 1.57 to win this clash with the Germans around the 5.00 mark.

Only Atletico Madrid have collected more points at home than Real’s 35. Los Blancos have dropped just four points at the Santiago Bernabeu this term. The league leaders have scored 31 whilst conceding seven. Their record is impressive, considering the injuries sustained throughout the campaign.

Marco Rose’s men do their best work at the Red Bull Arena. Leipzig have collected 14 of their 40 points away from home in the Bundesliga. The visitors have scored 19 and conceded 20 in 11 outings. Rose’s side have lost at Leverkusen, Bayern and Stuttgart in 23/24. The trio have been the best sides in Germany this season.

Real Madrid has a superior experience. They are a side that is familiar with winning. Leipzig will have to attack the hosts at some point during this clash. Los Blancos will benefit from that.

Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig Tip 2: Goals Galore

Just a single goal was scored in the first leg three weeks ago, despite the high number of shots and upwards of 2.70xG. The contest was even in Germany. RB Leipzig had 14 goal attempts, and the eventual winners recorded 15. Marco Rose and his side will be kicking themselves that they find themselves behind in the tie. His side missed three big chances in the defeat.

In knockout football, we usually see an influx of goals in the second leg. This game has the possibility of being a cracker. RB Leipzig must attack with a purpose.

That will be if they want to penetrate Real Madrid’s defence. Ancelotti’s men always pack a punch. Vini JR and Rodrygo are superb footballers and can hurt any side.

Leipzig’s three Champions League group stage away days witnessed 12 goals. They were beaten 3-2 by Manchester City. The Germans are without a clean sheet in 12 consecutive away matches. They’ve conceded multiple times in eight of those outings.

Real Madrid is brilliant at this venue. Two of their three group-stage matches saw at least three goals. They’re up against an attacking unit that can score comfortably on their day. Both sides should contribute on Wednesday night.

Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig Tip 3: Ruthless Rodrygo

Rodrygo and Vini JR are a joy to watch. The pair complement each other remarkably well. I’m taking the former here in the AGS market. Rodrygo has started all seven Champions League matches this term. The number 11 has recorded 23 shots in 564 minutes of football in 23/24. That’s a whopping 3.67 shots per 90, with an impressive 1.76 hitting the target.

Only Jude Bellingham has scored more goals for Real Madrid in this competition. Rodrygo had four shots in the reverse fixture. Two were blocked, with the others wide of the target. In a contest where we expect goals, I can see our man having joy in attacking areas.

RB Leipzig’s away record is poor. They’ll give up chances and will ultimately concede at least once.

Rodrygo is underperforming his goal expectancy. In La Liga, he has scored eight times. His xG number is sitting at 9.23. The Brazilian has scored three times from 3.84xG in the Champions League. He’s shooting regularly and consistently, which is massive for our selection.

Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig Team News and Possible Lineups: Majority Available For Both In This Crunch Match

RB Leipzig will be missing Gulacsi and Klostermann. It’s two huge misses for the visitors. Yussuf Poulsen is a doubt but should be available for selection.
Openda, Sesko, Simons and Olmo should all start here in attack.

Real Madrid has a couple of players out with injuries, such as Alaba and Militao. Jude Bellingham and Courtois are back in training but aren’t expected to start this clash.

Vini JR and Rodrygo are expected to start in attack for the home side. Their midfield is stacked with talent. It’s not always easy to predict which players Ancelotti picks in the starting XI.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Fernandez, Mendy, Tchouameni, Valverde, Kroos, Camavinga, Vini JR; Rodrygo

RB Leipzig possible starting lineup:
Blaswich; Henrichs, Simakan, Orban, Raum, Kampl, Schlager, Olmo, Simons, Sesko; Openda
