RB Leipzig will be looking to keep their Champions League knockout phase dreams alive when they host Paris Saint-Germain at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday evening (8pm UK time).
Jesse Marsch’s men know they will be unlikely to play round-of-16 football this season (including the Europa League) with another defeat to PSG while their French visitors can take another major step towards winning the competition which has eluded them for so long.

RB Leipzig vs PSG build-up & previous line-ups:
Suffice it to say that RB Leipzig have been a tad unlucky in this season’s Champions League so far and that’s not mentioning how they were drawn into the same group as the previous two runners-up. Despite registering three goals at Manchester City, all scored by Christopher Nkunku, they lost (6-3). What followed were narrow losses to Club Brugge (2-1) and this week’s opponents PSG (3-2) though it must be said in both games Jesse Marsch’s side led before ultimately falling. Speaking of the aforementioned Nkunku, who came up through PSG’s academy, he’s so far been involved in six sequences of play ending in goals this season which is the most of any midfielder in the competition so far.
Who’d be the manager of PSG? Since their acquisition by Qatar Sports Investments (QSi) in 2011 the powers that be have been hell-bent on winning the European Cup, so far that dream has not been realised, and one final appearance during this period is simply not good enough. Mauricio Pochettino — a losing finalist himself — knows what needs to be done. An opening round draw in Brugge was erased after impressive home wins over City (2-0) and RB Leipzig but topping Group A, which they currently lead, will not be enough. Following their 3-2 win against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of last season’s tournament PSG are seeking to record consecutive victories on German soil in European competition for the first time.
- RB Leipzig (vs Eintracht Frankfurt): Gulácsi; Simakan, Gvardiol, Orban; Mukiele, Haidara, Kampl, Angeliño; Nkunku, Poulsen, Szoboszlai.
- PSG (vs Lille): Donnarumma; Kehrer, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Bernat; Pereira, Gueye, Wijnaldum; Di María, Messi, Neymar.

Player to watch: Kylian Mbappé (PSG)
Despite his domestic struggles, no goals across five Ligue 1 appearances, Lionel Messi has looked the part in European competition having struck three goals in three Champions League outings. Pochettino and company, though, must do without the record six-time Ballon d’Or recipient as he’s sidelined with a knee injury. In his absence there’s still a host of exciting and dangerous attackers most notably Kylian Mbappé who since making his tournament debut in September 2016 has been directly involved in more goals away from home than any other player in the competition (28 – 19 goals and nine assists). So far this season the 22-year-old created for Ander Herrera in Brugge before scoring one goal (against Leipzig) and providing three assists in PSG’s two home games heading into this latest showdown.
