Real Madrid are in the box seat to reclaim the La Liga title and Los Merengues are also looking at a strong challenge when it comes to winning the European Cup. Carlo Ancelotti has previously steered the team to glory in this competition and they are once again among the favourites to land this trophy.

Not that a draw against RB Leipzig is straightforward, with Real heading to Germany as marginal favourites to record a first leg victory. They will go up against a Leipzig side who are currently stationed in fifth place when it comes to the Bundesliga standings, with the team having won six of their ten home matches domestically.

Marco Rose was able to steer the team to third in the division last season although recent domestic form has been a concern. Home defeats against Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen have been followed by a heavy 5-2 defeat away to Stuttgart and there’s a concern that this game will come at the wrong time for the German side.

The bookies think that Leipzig are the big outsiders to get the job done and they will hope that domestic clashes against Augsburg and Union Berlin go some way to boosting their confidence levels against opponents who have barely lost a match all season. Danger man Vinicius Junior recently plundered a hat-trick against Barcelona in a Super Cup clash and he could be one to watch here.
