RB Leipzig will face SL Benfica tonight at Red Bull Arena, in a game where they can guarantee their qualification for the knockout stages of the Uefa Champions League.
In an impressive run of form, winning their last 5 games by a 2+ goal margin, Leipzig will encounter a fragile Portuguese team this night in front of their fans. The intensity that is displayed by Nagelsmann team is one of the main traits this year for Leipzig, as the opposition usually can’t keep up with them. A win tonight would put them through the group stages, so expect a very strong first 20 minutes by the Germans. They’ve scored 24 goals in their last five competitive matches, an incredible statistic. If Benfica wants to steal points at Red Bull Arena, they obligatory need to score.
The qualification for the Portuguese team is looking even less likely as time goes by. For them to have a chance, they need to win the both games they have left and hope for the other teams to drop points along the way. Benfica’s moment not the best right now, as they are having trouble winning matches even against teams from inferior divisions. If they don’t substantially raise their level for tonight’s encounter, they could be up for a rude awakening at Leipzig’s home turf.
Even though this is a do or die match for the Portuguese side they don’t seem to have the talent and capacity to go toe-to-toe with Leipzig at the moment.
