PSG vs ISTANBUL BASAKSEHIR
PSG should see this game off comfortably, as they play the Istanbul outfit in Paris. Neymar is expected to feature in this game, after being rested during the weekend. Also, Mbappe and Veratti are both fits for this game.
RB LEIPZIG vs MANCHESTER UNITED
One of the most intense matches of the group stage as it turns out to be. This is going to be the game of the day to watch out for. However, in their last meeting at Old Trafford, the home side trashed their opponents 5-0. This should in itself be a confidence booster for United, as they visit Leipzig today. However, we do not write off Leipzig, as we all know threatening they are, on their day. United has a two-thirds probability to see through the group stages. But can Leipzig pull off a thriller, as they go into this encounter being underdogs?!
For MANCHESTER UNITED
De Gea and Luke Shaw should be fit to start, after being rested. However, both Cavani and Martial are unavailable for the clash. And of course, Fred is suspended.
For RB LEIPZIG
Upamecano faces suspension. Klostermann, Lainer, and Henrichs miss out due to injury. Samardzic is out due to Covid-19, as Naglesmann faces a selection headache.
All in all, we will witness a hell of a footballing night! These are the nights that we fans live for. And the Champions League never disappoints us.
Can we get an upset tonight? SO Tune in to catch live action!
