RB Leipzig host Monaco at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, this Wednesday on a Champions’ League group stage match.
A duel between two teams who were last season’s sensations. Monaco was able to overcome PSG, winning the Ligue 1 title. They also did very well on the last edition of the Champions’ League, only losing in the semi-finals against Juventus.
For this season, they have made a lot of changes. They lost several important players in the transfer window, with Bernardo Silva and Mendy going to Manchester City, Bakayoko going to Chelsea and almost near the end losing their star Mbappé to PSG.
The team tried to get some replacements, bringing in Jovetic and Tielemans. But the confidence resides on Leonardo Jardim’s work, since he has shown the ability to rebuild this Monaco team several times.

RB Leipzig vs Monaco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Leipzig has already made history last season with their surprising campaign in the Bundesliga. But that’s nothing close to the achievement of playing in their first Champions League.
The German team wasn’t able to contest Bayern for the Bundesliga title. But they’ve ensured their passport for this continental tournament.
In the current season, the team started off with a loss against Schalke, but then bounced back with wins against Freiburg and Hamburger.
I expect a match with goals here. Even with the departures, Monaco still has a strong attack. And they will face Leipzig who has in Wagner their biggest danger.
These are two offensive teams that should go on the attack and create a lot of goal opportunities. Both teams to score seems like a good bet here.
