Liverpool: The reds have struggled recently in English Premier League but hit a different level of urgency during the first leg against RB Leipzig. A quick series of goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane proved to be the difference makers, and the team will likely look to their offensive capabilities once again. The possible return of Roberto Firmino will also give the team a boost as they enter the second leg with a two goal advantage.

RB Leipzig: The team find themselves at a disadvantage as they enter the second leg down two goals. It was a disappointing first leg loss to Liverpool after a rather even match statistically, where a rough five minute patch gave Liverpool the two goal lead. The Bundesliga side does have a strong history as a resilient side and their impressive record of wins when they score first is 17-3-1. Expect the team to play with a sense of urgency from the opening first whistle and if they nab an early goal things could get very dicey for Liverpool
RB Leipzig puts forth a strong effort but Liverpool's goal advantage will see them through. Pick: Liverpool 2, RB Leipzig 2
