Head to Head


This will be the first match between Leipzig and Liverpool.

Leipzig Form


Leipzig have won their last four matches in all competitions. They sit second in the Bundesliga, currently 4 points behind Bayern Munich and are into the German Cup quarter-finals.

Their defence has been strong in recent weeks, winning to nil in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side won 1-0 against Bayer Leverkusen and beat Bochum 4-0 in the German Cup. Leipzig then won 3-0 at Schalke, an easy victory after having 64% possession and 3.10-0.13 expected goals.

Leipzig’s last match was a 2-1 home win against Augsburg. They were 2-0 up at half time after goals to Dani Olmo and Christopher Nkunku, conceding a late penalty to make it interesting.

Leipzig Injuries & Team News


Dominik Szoboszlai is still battling adductor problems after signing from Salzburg and is out.

Defender Benjamin Henrichs and the versatile Konrad Laimer are doubtful alongside attacking midfielder Emil Forsberg.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool have been in poor form, losing their last 3 Premier League matches and 5 of their last 7 matches in all competitions.

Jürgen Klopp’s side are now in a battle to stay in the top 4 with their title defence essentially over. Injuries to key defenders has been too much to overcome with their attack unable to compensate.

Liverpool lost three consecutive home matches to Burnley (1-0), Brighton (1-0) and Manchester City (4-1), something unimaginable last season.

The Reds were also knocked out of the FA Cup after a 3-2 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool’s last match was a 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Saturday. Mohamed Salah put them ahead in the 67th minute but they conceded three goals in 7 minutes with more individual errors at the back.

Liverpool Injuries & Team News


Liverpool are missing injured centre backs Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip. Expect Jordan Henderson to partner Fabinho in central defence after Ozan Kabak’s poor debut in Leicester.

Midfielder  aby Keita is injured and James Milner came off early against Leicester and is doubtful. Expect Thiago to return to the starting side here.
