RB Leipzig (LEP) host Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in Matchday 4 of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season at Red Bull Arena in the early hours of Thursday, November 4. The match will kick off at 1:30 AM IST.
LEP vs PSG Dream11 prediction
The two teams played a thrilling five-goal contest in Matchday 3 of the competition where a 74th-minute penalty from Lionel Messi made all the difference as PSG came out 3-2 victorious. PSG have had their struggles this season, but their attack has more often than not bailed the team out of danger. Thursday’s game in Leipzig could potentially see something similar happening.
PSG are expected to be without Kylian Mbappe, but will have Neymar up and running. Our prediction here is a win for PSG.
LEP vs PSG Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Lionel Messi has been fantastic for PSG in the Champions League, but the Argentine is being assessed ahead of the encounter. This makes Neymar an outright choice for a forward. Mauro Icardi is another option to consider, but the Argentina forward is less likely to make it to the starting XI. This makes Neymar the safest option to go with.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Angel Di Maria played a role in both of PSG’s goals against Lille on Saturday (G1, A1) and will be a pivotal part of Mauricio Pochettino’s set-up on Thursday. With Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes out, Di Maria will be the wrecker-in-chief for PSG.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Achraf Hakimi has played every minute of PSG’s UEFA Champions League action. Although he is yet to score or assist one in the competition, he remains a key player for his team. On the other hand, Leipzig are set to miss both of their full-backs meaning that the team will be forced to use their second-string players. This might allow Hakimi to have a bigger say in the fixture.
As far as a goalkeeper is concerned, we recommend you to go with LEP’s Peter Gulacsi, who will be tested more frequently than Gianluigi Donnarumma at the other end. More saves will result in more points.
LEP vs PSG probable playing XI
LEP playing XI (probable): Peter Gulacsi (goalkeeper), Mohamed Simakan, Willi Orban (captain), Josko Gvardiol; Nordi Mukiele, Konrad Laimer, Kevin Kampl, Angelino; Dani Olmo, Christopher Nkunku; Andre Silva
PSG playing XI (probable): Gianluigi Donnarumma (goalkeeper); Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos (captain), Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Georginio Wijnaldum, Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera; Angel Di Maria, Lionel Messi, Neymar
