" Liverpool vs. RB Leipzig, Live Stream, Team News, Prediction

 Liverpool and RB Leipzig will return to the Puskas Arena in Budapest for the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday night.

The Reds entered the game 2-0 before the first leg, which was also played on neutral ground in the same venue, and they hope to put local difficulties aside and reserve the quarter-final place for the third match. Time in four seasons.

A 2-0 away win at the Puskas Arena means that Jurgen Klopp's team returns to Hungary with one foot in the quarter-finals, and has never before been eliminated from this competition after winning away from home. in the first leg.

The Reds have also never lost any of their 20 previous 'home' games to German opponents, winning 16 and drawing four with an aggregate score of 52-9, although this match is difficult to rank among the rest given that it takes place. in Hungary, while Liverpool has become used to making an unwanted story in recent weeks.

In fact, Klopp and his players are probably happy that this match is taking place 1,300 miles from Merseyside, given that they have now incredibly lost their last six matches at Anfield, the worst streak in the club's 129-year history.

The most recent of these was a relegation-threatened 1-0 defeat by Fulham on Sunday, meaning Liverpool also remain without a goal in open play at home this calendar year; his only home goal of any kind in his last seven outings came through the penalty spot in a 4-1 loss to Manchester City.

Tactics and team news


Liverpool vs. RB Leipzig, Live Stream, Team News, Prediction

Liverpool missed Ozan Kabak's services in their recent loss to Fulham, forcing Klopp to turn to Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams to start at center-back.

This time, Fabinho could be called up after a breather, with the Brazilian's experience and game-reading qualities ready to play a key role in the heart of the LFC's backline. Phillips will accompany him in case Kabak does not recover in time this week.

More baseline changes should see Trent Alexander-Arnold replace Neco Williams at right-back. However, Andrew Robertson and Alisson are guaranteed to continue in their respective positions.

In the future, Jurgen Klopp might be tempted to start with Naby Keita, who was one of his best players in the loss to Fulham.

Battling injuries for most of his career at Anfield, the Guinean international could be desperate to play his former team, making him the favorite to start alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Thiago in Liverpool's three-man midfield. .

It will be interesting to see how Keita navigates through Leipzig's second press line, especially against some of his former teammates, including Sabitzer and Kampl.

And finally, in the attacking unit, Roberto Firmino was a big absentee against Fulham while Sadio Mane was on the bench, probably in view of this important meeting against RB Leipzig.

Firmino remains a doubt due to his hit, which means Diogo Jota can continue in the three-man LFC attack, alongside Mohamed Salah and Mane.

Liverpool has traveled far and wide to defend their territory against RB Leipzig.

The teams will meet on Wednesday in Budapest, Hungary, at the Puskas Arena in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 series. Liverpool won the first leg 2-0 and will be looking to quell RB Leipzig's resistance and reserve a place in the quarter-finals.
