RB Leipzig are taking on Atletico Madrid tonight at the José Alvalade Stadium in a one-off quarter-final tie bidding for the right to play in PSG next week’s Champions League semi-finals.
Leipzig are without their star forward this season, Timo Werner, following his sale to Chelsea, but have a coach in Julian Nagelsmann who has been waiting for an evening like this to announce himself on the big stage.
To do it they will have to beat one of the tournament favourites who have their own inspirational coach in Diego Simeone and a tough striker pin down in Diego Costa. Follow all the latest below:
RB Leipzig will be without Timo Werner, of course, after he completed his move to Chelsea. Emil Forsberg should be fit after tonsillitis.
Atletico could be without Thomas Partey in midfield, while Felipe won’t be fully match fit and thus probably won’t start at centre-back.
Leipzig: Gulacsi; Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg; Mukiele, Sabitzer, Kampl, Angelino; Nkunku, Olmo; Schick.
Atletico: Oblak; Arias, Savic, Gimenez, Renan Lodi; Correa, Saul, Koke, Carrasco; Llorente; Costa.
Leipzig — 12/5
Draw — 23/10
Atletico — 11/8
