Liverpool vs RB Leipzig: Predictions
Liverpool are in terrible form in the Premier League having lost six of their last seven games following the defeat to Fulham on the weekend. Injuries have continued to mount up for Jurgen Klopp with Jordan Henderson’s return unknown after the midfielder had to have surgery following an injury sustained against Everton.
Although the Reds carry a healthy advantage into the game at the Puskas Arena, Leipzig will be encouraged by Liverpool’s horrific home form this year. No side in the Premier League has a worse home record since the turn of the year than Liverpool with six consecutive defeats at home in the league. Since their 64-game unbeaten run at Anfield came to an end Klopp’s side have not won there once.
Leipzig continues to pressure Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich and Julian Nagelsmann’s side have scored three goals in all three of their league games since their European defeat to Liverpool. Leipzig continued that run with an emphatic 3-0 win away to Freiburg on Saturday which maintained their spot in second place and the two-point gap to leaders Bayern Munich.

Liverpool vs RB Leipzig: Match Stats
Although the game is being played at a neutral venue, Liverpool have not won a game at home since 16 December against Tottenham. Klopp’s side are on an eight-game winless run (six defeats) in home games and they are playing a side that has scored three goals in every Bundesliga game since the first-leg defeat.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has only kept three clean sheets across their 14 games in all competitions since the turn of the year (one of them being away to Leipzig.) However, only one of those clean sheets has been at home and that came back in January, since, Liverpool have conceded nine goals at home and only scored once.
The victory for Liverpool in the first-leg just a few weeks ago was the first time the two sides had met in their history. Leipzig will be hoping they can capitalise on Liverpool’s awful recent home form to seal a place in the quarter-finals.
