Real Madrid are the defending European champions after their stunning run to the final last season which saw them beat PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool to claim their 14th crown. And they got their defence off to a perfect start last week, beating Celtic 3-0 in Glasgow.

That win over Celtic continued Real Madrid’s perfect start to the season across all competitions and Los Blancos kept that run going at the weekend in coming from behind to beat Mallorca. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are the only team in Europe’s top five leagues to still maintain a perfect record with five victories in La Liga joined by the win over Celtic and 2-0 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Uefa Super Cup.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, have had a stormy start to the season. Beaten 5-3 in the DFL-Supercup by Bayern Munich, Leipzig went four games without a win across all competitions to start the season including two lost leads against Stuttgart and FC Koln.

Leipzig did bounce back with wins over Wolfsburg and Teutonia in the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal respectively but back-to-back heavy defeats to Eintracht Frankfurt and Shakhtar Donetsk, the latter in the Champions League, cost Domenico Tedesco his job. Marco Rose has come in to replace Tedesco and, in his first game, led Leipzig to a comfortable 3-0 victory over former club Borussia Dortmund.

Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig match stats

Although RB Leipzig have had their struggles on the pitch this season, Christopher Nkunku continues to thrive and he’ll be looking to build on an excellent away run in the Champions League. The Frenchman was directly involved in six goals away from home in the Champions League last season, the fourth-best tally of any player in the competition – made more impressive by the fact he only played three away matches.

Real Madrid have loved playing German sides of late, scoring at least two goals in each of their past 11 games vs German opposition in the Champions League and managing 27 in total during that run.
