RB Leipzig vs Manchester United Pundits Predictions and Betting Tips

RB Leipzig betting tips

RB Leipzig vs Manchester United predictions and betting tips for the Champions League Group H decider where both teams can still qualify and United know they only need a point to go through.

What are the pundits tipping for this match in Germany? We have found some of the best RB Leipzig vs Man United betting tips and added them all below.

United ran out emphatic winners when these two sides met at Old Trafford. A Marcus Rashford hat-trick and goals from Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial gave them a 5-0 win and at that stage, it looked like United would coast into the last 16. However, the shock defeat in Istanbul against Basaksehir has meant they need to get a result in Germany, unless PSG suffer a shock loss at home.

Leipzig drew 3-3 with Bayern Munich at the weekend and needed a 93rd-minute winner in Istanbul to win 4-3 last week, so they are not in the best of form going into this game defensively. It is likely that they’ll need three points from this to qualify so it will be interesting to see how Julian Nagelsmann approaches the game.

 

RB Leipzig vs Man United Predictions

  • Dimitar Berbatov predicts United can do enough
  • Sportsmole predict an entertaining draw
  • Sportskeeda go for a narrow away win

 

Dimitar Berbatov Prediction

“I am confident and I believe that they can still qualify with a result against RB Leipzig. Looking at the match, I am a bit worried because Leipzig are a good team and I don’t think anyone thinks otherwise, they are going to cause problems for United, even though last time out United won 5-0 don’t let that fool you.

“Every game is different, and Leipzig will push with everything they have to qualify. They have a great coach, they have a good team, and based on how United have performed this season, for me it’s going to be really difficult for them, they need to have their best game to get the job done.

“I hope I’m wrong and I hope it’s 5-0 to United like last time, but why leave it to the last game? I suppose there’s nothing they can do about previous results now, they just have to do their job next week.”

“If they do get knocked out then yes, it will be very disappointing because it is currently in their hands and they have to take one point in their last game.

“But, when you leave it to the last moment, it’s never a good feeling and I’m sure they will be nervous.”

SportsMole Prediction

“United only need a point to progress to the knockout stage, and we fancy the English giants to have enough to advance. Leipzig have conceded six goals in their last two matches, and Solskjaer’s side are certainly capable of harming the Bundesliga outfit, as they demonstrated at Old Trafford in the reverse game.”

2-2 correct score – 11/1 with bet365.

 

SportsKeeda Prediction

“Both Manchester United and RB Leipzig need to win to ensure qualification to the next round.

RB Leipzig were thrashed by Manchester United in the reverse fixture, and a similar event seems unlikely. The German side have a talented manager in Julian Nagelsmann who will be keen to ensure that the likes of Marcus Rashord and Bruno Fernandes are nullified.

Manchester United, on the other hand, enjoyed a good start to their Champions League campaign with wins over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig. However, a shock loss to Istanbul Basaksehir proved to be problematic.

Manchester United have shown a knack for performing when under immense pressure, and might just edge past RB Leipzig in midweek.”

RB Leipzig 1-2 Manchester United – 9/1 with bet365.

When these sides met at Old Trafford, Manchester United won 5-0 with Marcus Rashford scoring a hat-trick.

 

WhoScored Prediction

“RB Leipzig need to beat Manchester United on Tuesday to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition, whereas United only need a point to secure a top-two finish.”

“Leipzig showed on Saturday they can compete with the best after a thrilling 3-3 draw away to Bayern Munich but also that they are vulnerable at the back. They have conceded three goals in each of their last two.”

“United supporters again saw the very best and very worst of their side at the weekend after coming from behind (again) to beat West Ham 3-1 on Saturday. While their ability to rally back is commendable, they need to start matches better as they cannot get out of jail every week and will be picked off by better teams. They have already failed to get a result conceding first against both Istanbul Basaksehir and PSG.”

“Leipzig have a 100%t home record this season (W7) but that will be put to the test on Tuesday. Leipzig will need to push on for three points at one stage in the match and United, as they showed in the reverse 5-0 win, certainly have the tools to punish them on the counter. Tuesday’s game will be a nail-bitter.”

2-2 draw – 11/1 with bet365.

 

Evening Standard Predictions

“United have certainly not done things the easy way this season, and this trip to Leipzig promises to be another nervy away-day for the Red Devils.

If United play anything like they did in the reverse fixture, they’ll go through – but it depends on which version of United turn up.

Expect Leipzig to start brightly and possibly take the lead, but Solskjaer’s men should find enough to reach the last-16.

The only previous meeting between the two sides saw United beat Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford earlier in the group stages on 28 October.”

1-1 draw – 13/2 with bet365.

 

The Independent Prediction

“Much hinges on how solid Leipzig can be at the back as United will certainly have lots of counter-attacking opportunities. Both teams have been error-strewn at the back at times and United cannot expect to keep finding a way to win from behind at the highest level – the defeat in Turkey could cost them dearly. Expect several goals in the game either way!”

RB Leipzig to win 3-2 – 27/1 with SBK.
