RB Leipzig vs. Liverpool - prediction, team news, lineups




A Heavyweight Pre-season Clash Takes Place At The Red Bull Arena On Thursday Night As Rb Leipzig Take On Liverpool In A Friendly.


Domenico Tedesco's Side Won 3-1 At Southampton Last Time Out, While The Reds Picked Up Their First Win Of Pre-season Against Crystal Palace.

Domenico Tedesco's Revival At Rb Leipzig Culminated In A Dfb-pokal Triumph For Die Roten Bullen Last Term, And The Bundesliga Powerhouses Already Have Reason To Celebrate Ahead Of The Start Of The New Campaign.

After Scoring And Taking Goals For Fun Last Season, Christopher Nkunku Was Courted By Several European Clubs But Ultimately Decided To Extend His Contract With Leipzig, Who Have Been Rather Quiet In Terms Of Arrivals So Far. The Hosts' Signings So Far Are Represented By Xaver Schlager, Who Arrived From Wolfsburg For A Fee Of €12m (£10.2m), While Hwang Hee-chan And Tyler Adams Have Both Left The Club On Permanent Deals To Head To The Premier League. With Wolverhampton Wanderers. Respectively Leeds United.

Konrad Laimer And Brian Brobbey Look Set To Be Sidelined With Moves To Bayern Munich And Ajax Respectively, But The Pair Could At Least Play A Part In The Recent Friendly Win Over Southampton Where Tedesco's Men Started The Summer In Perfect Style. .

Angelino, Emil Forsberg And Ilaix Moriba Were On Target Along With Adam Armstrong's Consolation In A 3-1 Win For Die Roten Bullen, Who Ended Their Warm-up Against Liverpool Before Facing Bayern Munich In The German Super Cup On July 30.

Leipzig's Medical Center Is Still Not Completely Empty, With Tedesco Expecting To Be Without Much-wanted Defender Josko Guardiola Until The Start Of The Bundesliga Season Due To A Thigh Injury He Recently Underwent Surgery On.

Striker Yussuf Poulsen Is Also On Track To Return After Picking Up A Muscle Injury With Denmark, While Ademola Lookman Also Appears Doubtful After Picking Up An Ankle Injury In Training Last Week. Tedesco Will Get The Most Out Of His Squad This Week, But In A Strong Starting Xi, Peter Gulacsi Should Hand Over The Gloves Against His Former Club, While Alexander Sorloth Should Lead The Line In Poulsen's Absence.

Similarly, Liverpool Boss Klopp Has A Few Bumps And Bruises To Deal With At The Moment, And There Are Concerns That Diogo Jota Has Suffered A Recurrence Of A Previous Hamstring Injury Sustained While On Duty In Portugal.

Alisson Becker Will Also Be Unavailable For Thursday's Game With An Abdominal Problem, While Alex Oxlade-chamberlain Picked Up Another Muscle Injury In Last Week's Win Over Palace.

Joe Gomez Was Left Out As A Precaution But Is Now Back In Training, While Kaide Gordon, Caoimhin Kelleher And Ramsay Are Unlikely To Be Risked Just Yet.

Mohamed Salah Could Be Among Those Returned To The Starting Xi As Liverpool Begin The New Season, With Adrian Between The Sticks Again.

RB Leipzig possible starting lineup:

Gulacsi; Klostermann, Simakan, Orban; Mukiele, Haidara, Kampl, Halstenberg; Nkunku, Forsberg; Sorloth

Liverpool possible starting lineup:

Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Elliott, Henderson, Thiago; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
