When the teams clashed at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on 13 February, a goal from Brahim Diaz shortly after half-time was enough to separate the two teams. It was a scarcely deserved victory for Real Madrid who rode their luck throughout the contest, although RB Leipzig were made to pay for missed chances in this encounter.

Marco Rose’s side will head to the Spanish capital still feeling confident of a victory from this clash and one goal is not a huge advantage for Real. There could be some nervousness in their ranks although Carlo Ancelotti’s side have consistently shown their capability when it comes to European competition.

Real sit comfortably top of the La Liga standings thanks to a stellar campaign which has barely seen them experience a defeat. You have to go back to 24 September to find the last time that they tasted defeat and their chances of European success are respected by the bookies who think they’re among the teams to beat.

It appears that Jude Bellingham could return to the team in time for this encounter and this would represent a huge boost for a team who have blossomed with the English maestro operating in midfield. It could be an entertaining game considering that Leipzig need to outscore their Spanish opponents and we’re looking forward to the clash.
