RB Leipzig vs Manchester United Betting Tips

  • Posted on: 11 December 2020

Manchester United have been receiving a lot of criticism for their difficult campaign, but recent weeks have seen the team display a lot of character.

The defeat against PSG at Old Trafford in the recent round places a lot of importance on the upcoming match against RB Leipzig. There will be no fans for this encounter and United will be hoping to make the most of the psychological advantage from the 5-0 victory in the reverse fixture. The match might turn out to be a lot more difficult for United even with the comfortable win in the previous round.

RB Leipzig are undoubtedly feeling the effects of losing players like Timo Werner in the summer. Manager Julian Nagelsmann will be keen to make his team get a positive result and overcome the disappointment of the reverse fixture. United could have been in a comfortable position in the group if not for the loss against PSG.

As it stands, all the top three teams – Manchester United, PSG, and RB Leipzig – are level on points. It is only the goal difference that separates them. United know that a draw will be sufficient to reach the next round of the competition, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s cannot play for such a result given the fragile confidence.
Since there is a not playing on the result, it is better to avoid the option when it comes to betting on this match. The better pick would be to back the goals that would come in this match. Since RB Leipzig have to win in order to have any chance of qualification, they will be attacking and this will open up opportunities on the counter-attack for United. The best option would be to back both teams to score at 8/15, which is a price available with Bet365.
