Let’s check the latest Champions League predictions, stats, injury reports, and Champions League betting for RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid.
RB Leipzig: Ups and Downs
Two wins against Celtic put Leipzig completely back in the game for second place in Group F and now everything is practically in their hands. They are trailing leaders Real Madrid by four points and they can’t afford to lose this game, having Shakhtar just one point behind them.
The German outfit certainly comes into the game in good form, as they are unbeaten in seven matches across all competitions. Christopher Nkunku came off the bench after minor wrist surgery on Saturday to help Leipzig come from 3-0 down to snatch a draw at Augsburg.
RB Leipzig is sitting eighth in the Bundesliga standings and has struggled to impose themselves this season, but the team is looking better and better since Marco Rose took over. Even though their overall form is currently good, it will be very tough for them to pull off the upset on Tuesday, but we do expect them to contribute on the scoresheet. If you’re betting online, focus on the goals market.
RB Leipzig will be without Lukas Klostermann, Marcel Halstenberg, Konrad Laimer, and Peter Gulacsi on Tuesday evening through injury, while Timo Werner, Yussuf Poulsen, Dani Olmo, and Emil Forsberg are all rated as doubtful.
Real Madrid: Squad issues
Despite approaching the halfway mark, Real Madrid has yet to lose a match in any competition, leading both the Champions League group and domestic league. Real Madrid will attract plenty of attention from punters, but you should not include them in your soccer picks and parlays, and here’s why.
Carlo Ancelotti has chosen to call up three youngsters for the match: Sergio Arribas, Alvaro Rodriguez, and Carlos Dotor to the squad. Arribas has already made his debut, but it would be the first appearance for either Dotor or Rodriguez.
Thibaut Courtois continues to be absent with a sciatica issue that has been causing him pain and keeping him out for the entirety of October. Luka Modric was on the squad initially and only on Monday morning did Real Madrid release a statement declaring that he would miss the match and would not travel with the team. Karim Benzema and Fede Valverde will also not travel with the team.
Dani Ceballos is also missing with injury, meaning that Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Eduardo Camavinga are the only senior midfielders available.
RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head
Real Madrid managed to win the reverse fixture, beating Leipzig 2-0 on home soil. Nkunku is Leipzig’s 11-goal top scorer from 17 appearances, four more than Real’s joint-best scorers, Fede Valverde and Vinicius Junior. RB Leipzig has won eight of their last 14 European home games. Real has lost 19 of their 34 visits to Germany, winning seven and drawing eight. There have been three or more goals in 13 of RB Leipzig’s 18 games this season while 11 of Real Madrid’s last 15 fixtures have contained at least three goals.

The visitors enter this clash as slight favorites being priced at +155 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at three
Real easily won the first match of these teams 2-0, but Ancelotti will rest some players. He opted to leave some behind, bringing some young guns from Los Blancos’ second team, but we still expect them to score given that RB Leipzig’s defensive line is not exactly renowned for being watertight. That’s why we expect a high-scoring affair with goals from both sides.
