RB Leipzig will make their much anticipated debut in the UEFA Champions League at home as they take on last seasons semi-finalists, AS Monaco. This is a game between two teams that are on similar levels in terms of skill and quality so I think we should get a very good contest.
AS Monaco have lost a large amount of talent over the transfer window with the loss of Mbappe, Mendy, and many other players. The impact of these losses has been shown on the team as they seem to be struggling in the domestic league. They will look to turn this around this week as they travel to Germany but whether or not they can do that will be the big question.
RB Leipzig, on the other hand, has managed to hold onto a large number of players for the previous season and as a result, they are still a pretty strong team. This is a side that managed to challenge Bayern Munich for a large portion of the season last season and they will want to display that quality once more this game. At this stage of the year, I think that they are the better side and as a result, I think they will get the win in this game.
Betting on the home side to win this game is paying well enough and as a result that is probably the best bet that we can make for this. In addition to that, I think that this will be a very high scoring game. The over 2.5 goals seem like a safe bet and as a result, that is another bet that I am suggesting for this game.
