RB Leipzig were one of a number of youthful, attack minded teams to upset the odds last season, with the newly promoted club beating off the likes of Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga runners up spot and qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in their history.
RB Leipzig did pick up a crucial and unexpected three points on Saturday though, beating Borussia Dortmund away from home in a hot tempered match, with the 3-2 scoreline reflective of both sides’ neutral-friendly attacking mentality. The hosts have now won five, drawn two, and lost three of their ten competitive games this season.
Porto won’t be pushovers on Tuesday though. The visitors were terrible in round one of the group stages as they lost at home to Besiktas, but they more than made up for that disappointment with a 3-0 win over Monaco in their last match, and they have won nine of their 11 competitive games this season.
The visitors have a few good results away from home in the Champions League to look back on as well. They have won four of their last eight games, with their defeats coming against the likes of Chelsea, Leicester, and Juventus. They have also found the net in 11 of their last 15 trips away in the competition, but have conceded in eight of their last 11.
RB Leipzig vs FC Porto News & Prediction
RB Leipzig: Ralph Hasenhuttl will have to do without right back Lukas Klostermann, who recently has developed a thigh injury. Other than that, there are no injury concerns for the manager and he will be glad as they search for a European breakthrough. Look for Emil Forsberg and Timo Werner to come back into the side after being given rest.
FC Porto: Sergio Conceicao has injuries to goalkeeper Fabiano and center forward Tiquinho Soares that will see them made unavailable to him. After playing out a cup match at the weekend, expect a lot of changes to be made as their level of competition goes up drastically.
