RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid: Match Preview | UCL 2022/23


On Tuesday night, Real Madrid face RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League with the knowledge that a draw would confirm their stance as group winners in Group F.

Los Blancos, who have already advanced to the round of 16, are in first place with 10 points, four points ahead of Leipzig, who are seeking to join the defending champions in the next round and are now in second place.

Prior to the upcoming games, RB Leipzig are in second place on the table with six points after winning two and losing two of their four games. They are one point ahead of Shakhtar Donetsk in third place.

Shakhtar travels to Celtic in search of their second win in the group, although Leipzig will advance to the next round of the competition if they defeat Real Madrid and Shakhtar loses in Scotland.

Leipzig began their Group F campaign with two losses to Real Madrid and Shakhtar, which put them in a very difficult situation in terms of moving on to the next round. However, they have since bounced back with back-to-back victories over Celtic to move onto six points.

In their final two group games, Leipzig will host Real Madrid and then travel to Shakhtar with the goal of advancing to the next round of the competition.

Marco Rose’s side are unbeaten in their past seven games overall, including a 3-3 tie with Augsburg on Saturday in the Bundesliga that dropped them to eighth place in the standings.

Real Madrid is still undefeated in 16 games this season, and their 3-1 victory over Sevilla on Saturday in La Liga saw them maintain their lead over Barcelona, who sit second in the league.

Madrid have already advanced to the next round of the competition after earning 10 points from their first four games thanks to a record of three victories and one loss.

In their first three games in the division, Carlo Ancelotti’s team defeated Celtic, Leipzig, and Shakhtar. However, in their most recent away game against Shakhtar, they needed an injury-time goal from Antonio Rudiger to earn a point, and the 1-1 draw was enough to advance them into the round of 16.
