Liverpool will travel to Budapest to take on RB Leipzig in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round-of-16 tie on Wednesday, February 17. The game is set to be played at the Puskas Arena in Hungary.
The upcoming match will be the first-ever competitive clash between the two sides and it will be held at the neutral venue due to the ongoing novel coronavirus restrictions. Leipzig will be the favourites heading into the game as they have won four out of their last five games across competitions and are in a good run of form.
On the contrary, Liverpool are struggling and have lost their last three games. Jurgen Klopp’s side has been plagued by injuries and will head into the clash as underdogs. They will look to squeeze out a win in the upcoming game and try to keep themselves in the only competition where they still have a chance of going all the way.
The UEFA Champions League 2020-21 RB Leipzig vs Liverpool match is scheduled to kick off at 01:30 am IST.
