It’s the gameweek 2 of the UEFA Champions League and this time the defending champions Real Madrid will host German opposition RB Leipzig. Now Madrid have started the new season in sensational way as they are the only team in Europe to have a 100% win record in all competitions. This is because in La Liga they are top the table having won 5 out the 5 games and last week in the Champions League they destroyed Celtics away from home 3-0. However, in that game they lost one f their best players and that man is Karim Benzema as he got injured and they’ll be without him in the Leipzig match but still they have got a lot of stability in attack with the likes of Vinicius and Rodrygo making up for the Frenchman’s goals.
Now Leipzig have had a rocky start to the season cause currently they 10th in the Bundesliga table having won 2 games, drawn 2 and lost 2 and even in the Champions League they got smashed by Shaktar Donetsk last week at a score of 4-1. However, they are coming off a huge win i this game s in their last match they faced the giants Dortmud and defeated them 3-0, so that is certainly a positive for them. But still the quality and the stability that Los Blancos have all around the pitch plus the home support they’ll be getting, it very unlikely for Leipzig to get any sort of result at the Bernebeu.
