RB Leipzig vs Paris SG will be the 4th round of this year UEFA Champions League. So far, both teams are showing very different results. While Leipzig hasn’t won a single match and is the last in the group, PSG is in first place with 7 points. So this game will be vital for the Germans.

A 94th-minute equaliser away to Eintracht Frankfurt denied RB Leipzig at the death last time out as boss Jesse Marsch’s new reign at the club continues to fail. That result leaves the Saxony side eighth in the Bundesliga whilst their prospects in UEFA Champions League Group A look even bleaker after suffering three losses from three European matches so far. One of those defeats was a bruising 3-2 loss to French giants Paris Saint-Germain on matchday three which leaves the hosts rooted to the bottom of Group A and in real danger of not playing springtime European football after doing so in their previous three continental campaigns. Their poor recent record vs French opposition in European competition won’t inspire much confidence either. However, now they have no other way than to win, so this game will decide if they will keep fighting in Europe.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have now lost just one of their last nine away UCL group stage fixtures, although that sole defeat did come at this venue vs Leipzig last season despite taking an early lead! That’s unlikely to cause too much concern though, as PSG have previously come out victorious across the other three UCL H2H. However, this time PSG also have some serious injury losses-Ramos, Messi, Paredes and Verrati. This might cos them a victory in Germany. Nevertheless, even without these players, the French team is very dangerous on the offensive, therefore Leipzig will have to start the game with high pressure.
RB Leipzig vs Paris SG H2H
Both teams faced each other 5 times and only once the home team has lost. The last two meetings ended with a close win for PSG 3:2;1:0. This might give confidence for Leipzig, that they can try to win and keep their hopes about advancing to Europa League.
