The 2020 UEFA Champions League final will feature at least one debutant as RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain do battle on Tuesday, each intent on qualifying for the deciding fixture for the first time.
Leipzig have progressed to the semi-final for the first time in their history, while PSG have made it to the final four for the second time, a quarter of a century after their last appearance at this stage.
RB Leipzig and PSG Lineups
RB Leipzig have made one change from their quarterfinal lineup, with Nordi Mukiele taking the place of Marcel Halstenberg in defense. Tyler Adams, the USMNT hero from the club's win over Atletico Madrid, again starts on the bench.
PSG have made a few major changes in their starting XI, starting with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who is out with an injury sustained in the quarterfinals. Sergio Rico will fill in. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe and Angel di Maria return to the starting lineup, giving PSG all the more attacking power.
RB Leipzig vs PSG Betting Odds
PSG are the favorites heading into this one, but the team looked shaky in their quarterfinal outing against Atalanta. RB Leipzig have the tactics and players to compete, making the German outfit a worthy bet.
PSG Odds: -127
RB Leipzig Odds: +325
Draw Odds: +295
Both outfits emerged on the winning side of 2-1 results in the last round to advance. Die Roten Bullen stood firm to knock out Atletico Madrid and continue their landmark campaign among Europe’s elite, but PSG’s last-gasp comeback against Atalanta looked less certain.
The Ligue 1 champions look likely to face an even tougher task against Julian Nagelsmann’s side at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, where both teams will be suffering from key absences.
Chief among PSG’s concerns is goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who won’t feature on Tuesday due to a thigh injury, per the club’s official website, leaving Sergio Rico to deputise between the posts. Idrissa Gueye is described as “very doubtful” to return in midfield after he was injured training on Saturday, meaning Leandro Paredes could start if he fails to recover.
Coach Thomas Tuchel was pleased to give a positive update on Kylian Mbappe’s fitness Monday after the France star was limited to a substitute role in the win over Atalanta, via Goal:
Mbappe’s return is a worry for Leipzig, who already know they’ll be without central defender Ibrahima Konate. There’s a strong chance the same XI will start against PSG, although United States international Tyler Adams will hope to work his way into the lineup after scoring an 88th-minute winner against Atleti.
Christopher Nkunku joined Leipzig from PSG a little more than one year ago and is set to face his old side having established his place as one of the Bundesliga’s most creative figures this season. The Frenchman recorded 15 assists in 21 Bundesliga starts this season (32 appearances total), showing his former club what he’s capable of when given a greater chance.
The only previous meeting between these two teams was a 2014 friendly that ended 4-2 in Leipzig’s favor at the Red Bull Arena. Striker Yussuf Poulsen scored for the Germans that day and is the only player who turned out in their most recent squad, while Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe are the sole survivors for PSG.
