Team news

Ibrahima Konate is out after undergoing hip surgery.

Marco Verratti and Keylor Navas are both set to miss out again here – Sergio Rico will deputsise for the latter. Layvin Kurzawa remains out injured, though Angel Di Maria returns from suspension. The key decision is whether Mbappe is fit enough to start after coming off the bench against Atalanta.

Predicted line-ups

Leipzig XI: Gulacsi; Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg, Angelino; Laimer, Kampl; Sabitzer, Olmo, Nkunku; Poulsen

PSG XI: Rico; Kehrer, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Di Maria, Paredes, Marquinhos, Neymar; Mbappe, Icardi

Odds

Leipzig: 10/3

Draw: 3/1

PSG: 3/4

Prediction

The French champions squeezed past Atalanta in the last round but with Kylian Mbappe primed for a bigger role, at least with more minutes from the bench, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping for less drama this time. Julian Nagelsmann will have a plan, he always does, but the superstar power PSG possess should be enough to overcome any continuity and traps set by the Germans. In Dayot Upamecano, there is a force able to repel Mbappe, Neymar et al, but we’ll lean towards PSG, who should be able to finally break through having escaped humiliation by the slimmest of margins in the last round. RB Leipzig 1-2 PSG
