RB Leipzig will play against Atletico Madrid in Champions League and we got the Best Football Prediction for the match. The game is on Thursday, August 13 from 20:00 UK at Estádio José Alvalade.
RB Leipzig finished in 3rd place in Bundesliga with 66 points after 34 matches and will play again in Champions League next season. Their last official match was on June 27th when they beat Augsburg 1:2 in Bundesliga. To make it this far Leipzig beat Tottenham in the 1/8 finals. The first match against Spurs was in London but the German team won it 0:1. The second leg was won again by the Bulls 3:0. The last match of the club was a friendly almost two weeks ago against Wolfsburg that finished without a winner 1:1. The goal for Leipzig was scored after a penalty from Patrik Schick.

The last match of the team was on July 19th in La Liga against Real Sociedad that finished 1:1. Koke scored for Atletico in 30th minute but in the last minutes of the clash, Hector Herrera scored an own goal and Sociedad left Madrid with a point. The team of Simeone didn’t play any friendlies after that. To make it to the quarter-finals. Atl. Madrid eliminates last year’s champions, Liverpool. The first match in Spain finished with a victory for the home team 1:0. After extra-time, The Reds lost again 2:3 and were eliminated.
The latest news before the game is not great for Atletico Madrid because two of their players tested positive for coronavirus. Their names are not revealed yet. Even though we will see that the team from Madrid is the favorite in the upcoming clash. Without a doubt they have a lot more experience in tournament battles like the upcoming and everything will be decided in one match. However, the safest bet for me here is under 3 goals because Atl. Madrid plays very cautious in this type of clashes. Best Football Prediction: Under 2.5 goals
