RB Leipzig vs Monaco Live Stream Watch Online & Preview: German hosts make Champions League bow, RB Leipzig v Monaco predictions, match preview: Monaco to avoid defeat against Champions League debutants.
Monaco travel to Leipzig motivated to bounce back after a troubled performance and a 4-0 loss suffered in Nice, which will surely do no wonders for them ahead of the Champions League campaign opener. However, their rivals haven’t been as predictable this term either and we do feel Leonardo Jardim’s men have what it takes to snatch at least a point.
RB Leipzig will make their UEFA Champions League bow when they host AS Monaco at the Red Bull Arena on Wednesday. The Germans’ reward for qualifying for the group stage for the first time in their short history will be a matchday one encounter with the French champions. An exciting Monaco side reached the semi-finals of this competition last year but fell to runners-up Juventus over two legs
Les Monegasques haven’t suffered two competitive losses in a row since April 2016 and, although very disappointing, we don’t believe the last week’s Ligue 1 loss will dent their confidence. With that in mind, we’ll back them to hold off the German rivals and go for Double chance – Draw or Monaco to win at 4/6. RB Leipzig have picked up their form and managed to build on the 4-1 win over Freiburg with a 0-2 win over Hamburger SV last week, with second-half goals from Keïta and Timo Werner. However, they haven’t been as consistent and we’ve seen them suffer quite comfortable losses to Stoke (1-2 in a friendly) and Schalke (2-0 in Bundesliga) in their last five outings.
