Liverpool Vs RB Leipzig: Latest team and injury news of both sides
The ‘home’ side will be traveling to Budapest sweating on the fitness of striker Roberto Firmino, who was nowhere to be seen as the Reds’ training on Wednesday. James Milner was also absent from the session and is therefore a doubt for tonight’s clash.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson all remain on the long-term injury list for Liverpool, while January signing Ozan Kabak is doubtful alongside 2nd-choice goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.
Liverpool injury list: Virgil van Dijk (out), Joe Gomez (out), Joel Matip (out), Jordan Henderson (out), Roberto Firmino (doubtful), Ozan Kabak (doubtful) James Milner (doubtful), Caoimhin Kelleher (doubtful)
Julian Nagelsmann won’t be able to select former Man City left-back Angelino in the side on Wednesday. The fast-paced full back has missed his side’s last three games with a thigh injury and will also watch this game from the sidelines, alongside Dominik Szobaszlai and Konrad Laimer.
Die Roten Bullen will also be sweating on the fitness of Willi Orban and Marcel Sabitzer, though Emil Forsberg will be back in the side after missing the first leg due to injury.

Liverpool Vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
The fact that the match remains fully poised despite Liverpool bringing a two-goal away cushion from the first leg has to do with the Reds’ poor form domestically, one that should give Leipzig players the confidence to overturn the deficit on Wednesday.
However, if one can gauge one thing from Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as Liverpool manager, the Reds are extremely difficult to defeat in two-legged ties, with Atletico Madrid needing some calamitous goalkeeping to send them packing in the quarter finals last season. That is why we’re going for a draw on the night. Liverpool 2 – 2 RB Leipzig
