Check out our predictions of the day for Real Madrid vs. RB Leipzig

Prediction 1: Real Madrid x RB Leipzig / Real Madrid to win

Real Madrid emerged victorious despite its first-leg challenges and now holds the advantage in the tie. RB Leipzig will attempt to reestablish parity in the aggregate score by claiming the early advantage in the match. On the contrary, the Red Bulls have a porous defence, having failed to maintain a clean sheet in their previous five games across all competitions. Nevertheless, another close encounter between these two is imminent, ultimately resulting in the Whites’ narrow victory.

Prediction 2: Real Madrid x RB Leipzig / Over 3 goals

The first leg, which took place three weeks ago, failed to produce any goals despite the considerable number of attempts and exceeding 2.70xG. The contest was even in Germany. RB Leipzig attempted 14 shots on target, while the eventual victors converted 15. Marco Rose and his team will be internally dismayed at falling behind in the tie. His team failed to capitalize on three significant opportunities during the loss.

In elimination football, the second leg typically features an onslaught of goals. There is a likelihood that this encounter will be a delight. RB Leipzig must execute deliberate attacks.

That is, provided they are determined to breach the defence of Real Madrid. Ancelotti’s squads are perpetually formidable. Rodrygo and Vini JR are both exceptional footballers who can trouble any defence.

Three away days in Leipzig’s Champions League group stage resulted in twelve goals. Manchester City defeated them 3-2. Twelve away matches have gone by without a clean sheet for the Germans. They have made multiple concessions in eight of those contests.

Real Madrid performs exceptionally well at this venue. Their group stage matches featured at least three goals in two of them. They face an attacking unit capable of comfortably scoring on their day. Wednesday evening should see contributions from both parties.

Prediction 3: Real Madrid x RB Leipzig / Rodrygo to score anytime

Vini JR. and Rodrygo are a delight to watch. An exceptional complement exists between the two individuals. Here in the AGS market, I’m going with the former. This season, Rodrygo has started each of his seven Champions League matches. As of 23/24, the number 11 has accumulated 23 strikes in 564 minutes of football. That is an astounding 3.67 attempts per 90, of which 1.76 were successful.

In this competition, only Jude Bellingham has scored more goals for Real Madrid. Rodrygo attempted four times in the rematch. Two were successfully thwarted, while the remaining ones were wide of the target. When we anticipate goals in a game, I can see our man taking great pleasure in assaulting zones.

On the road, RB Leipzig has a dismal record. At least once, they will ultimately concede after squandering opportunities.

In terms of goal expectancy, Rodrygo is falling short. Eight times in La Liga, he has scored. His current xG value is 9.23. In the Champions, Brazil scored three times from 3.84xG.
