RB Leipzig and Liverpool travel to Budapest to play the first encounter of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League last-16 round at Puskás Aréna. Germans and English will try to take advantage of this situation, as UEFA has decided to change the venue of three matches during this round. This will be the first official encouter between these two teams. Here you will find everything there is to know about this exciting soccer match, such as the preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch or live stream the game in the US.
Leipzig already know what it is to go against two of the so-called “top 6” clubs in England, as they took down Tottenham last season at this very stage and this campaign, they snatched Manchester United’s spot for this round and sent the Red Devils to the Europa League.
Liverpool want to take revenge this campaign after being eliminated by Atlético Madrid at this round last season. Curiously, they would have faced Leipzig in the next round should they beat the Spanish side in the Round of 16.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool: Storylines and Head-To-Head
Leipzig are one of the best teams in Germany now. They were one of the only two sides who won in the Bundesliga’s Matchday 21 and now are 5 points away from Bayern Munich, the current UCL winners and Bundesliga leaders. They are on a very good run and they’ll try to keep things that way against struggling Liverpool.
Liverpool are going through a very bad moment, unable to win in the Premier League in their last three matches, all bad losses against Brighton, Manchester City, and Leicester City, respectively. If they want to turn things around, this game is a very good chance, but they’ll have to face an inspired squad that doesn’t seem to be slowing down just yet.
This will be the first meeting between these two sides.
