Champions League, Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig: LIVE streaming info, preview, predicted lineups, head to head

PREVIEW

Defending champion Real Madrid will remain without the injured Karim Benzema when it hosts Leipzig on Thursday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be looking to nab its second consecutive win of the tournament after having won its group opener against Celtic 3-0 last week.

The French striker is still recovering from a tendon injury sustained in last week’s win. Coach Carlos Ancelotti used Rodrygo and Eden Hazard playing alongside Vinícius Júnior in attack in the team’s win against Mallorca in the Spanish league last weekend.

PREDICTED 11

Real Madrid: Courtois; Mendy, Alaba, Rudiger, Carvajal; Tchouameni, Modric, Kroos; Valverde, Vinicius, Hazard.

RB Leipzig: Gulacsi; Raum, Simakan, Orban, Diallo; Schlager, Laimer; Nkunku, Forsberg, Szoboszlai; Werner.

Madrid has a perfect record to start the season, with seven victories in seven games. This will be the first clash between both these sides.

Leipzig, meanwhile, had a shocking start to its Champion League campaign, with Shaktar Donestk thumping it 4-1 at home last week.

In the other match in Group F , Shakhtar Donetsk plays its first “home” game in the group in Warsaw when Celtic visits the Polish city. The Ukrainian team has been playing in exile for the last eight years because of Russian aggression.
