Liverpool vs RB Leipzig Preview
Having seen their Premier League campaign implode due to a combination of injuries and loss of form, this competition represents the only chance of relief in what has been a miserable season for the Reds.
However, even a 2-0 lead from the first leg is no guarantee of progression given they have lost six of the last eight matches in all competitions, and take on a team in contrastingly high-flying form.
Indeed, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will back themselves to get back into the tie after winning eight of the last nine fixtures – including three consecutive 3-0 victories on the road.
