Why Bet On RB Leipzig
Leipzig is sitting atop the Group G standings, having scored 10 goals while allowing eight goals in six Champions League matches. Leipzig finished third in Bundesliga action and comes into this clash off a 2-1 win over FC Augsburg in their last match on June 27. The Red Bulls have gone 5-4-1 over their last 10 games and took out Tottenham 3-0 in their last Champions League matchup on March 10. Timo Werner scored a team-high 28 goals in 34 Bundesliga matches while Patrik Schick has added 10 goals. Christopher Nkunku has added a team-high 13 assist while Werner has added eight. The bad news is that Yussuf Poulsen and Ibrahima Konate are both injured and will not suit up in this affair. Not only that, but Sabitzer is in danger of being suspended if he concedes another yellow card. Leipzig has gone 4-2-2 ATS and 3-3-2 O/U in their six Champions League matches.
Why Bet On Atletico
Atletico Madrid is in second place in the Group D standings with eight goals scored and five allowed. The Red and Whites have gone an encouraging 7-2-1 over their last 10 matches and come into this meeting fresh off a 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad in their last match in their La Liga season finale on Jul 19. Madrid finished third in the La Liga standings, having scored 51 goals while allowing just 24 goals defensively. Alvaro Morata scored a team-high 12 goals in 34 La Liga matches while Saul Niguez and Joao Felix added six goals. Angel Correa has dished out a team-high six assists while Koke has added five.
For this affair, Vrsaljko and Correa are the only two players that will miss this match, while Lodi is in danger of being suspended because of the yellow cards. Morata also leads the team with three goals in Champions League play while Llorente and Felix have both added a pair of goals. Madrid has gone 3-2-3 ATS and 3-4-1 O/U in their six Champions League matches this year,

Champions League Odds
Expert Analysis and PredictionAtletico Madrid might be the slight favorite in this matchup, but I like RB Leipzig to get the draw at the very least because of their more potent offense. The
Red Bulls have scored at least three goals in three of their last five victories and I think that will be enough to counter a Madrid defense that has been elite all season and come into this meetings having recorded five shutouts in their last seven victories. Madrid has played to a pair of draws over their last four matches while Leipzig has gotten the draw in four of their last 10. If Madrid doesn’t put two goals on the board, they’ll lose this one, but I’m going with the Over that ends in a 2-2- draw!
Pick: Leipzig 2 Atletico Madrid 2
