RB Leipzig vs Liverpool live stream: How to watch UEFA Champions League


Premier League title holders travel to Budapest to take on RB Leipzig in this UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie. Don’t miss a moment with our RB Leipzig vs Liverpool live stream guide.


Today’s visitors Liverpool topped their Champions League group with four wins, earning them a spot in the round of 16. The Reds exited the competition at this stage last year after La Liga’s Atlético Madrid notched a 4-2 aggregate win.

Jürgen Klopp’s men will want to avoid the same fate this season, especially as their Premier League campaign is not following the same trajectory as last term’s.

RB Leipzig also won four of six group stage games, though they were pipped for first place in the group by last year’s finalists PSG. Though they had the same points tally, PSG’s better head-to-head record meant that the Parisians went through in first place.

The Red Bulls made it all the way to the semi-finals last year which was an impressive feat in only their second participation in the competition. Head coach Julian Nagelsmann will hope that his team can go one better this season and reach their first Champions League final.

Leipzig will come into today’s game full of confidence off the back of three straight wins in the Bundesliga. The team are hot on the tails of defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich with a four-point deficit just over the halfway mark in the German season.

In contrast, Liverpool will be desperate to pick up a win and some much-needed momentum in the Champions League after three consecutive defeats in the domestic league. The defending Premier League champions have slipped to sixth place, thirteen points behind current leaders Manchester City who also have the luxury of a game in hand.

Ordinarily, Liverpool would be touching down in Germany for this game though local restrictions on travel from the UK mean that an alternative venue was required in a country accepting arrivals from England. The Puskás Aréna in Budapest, Hungary, was selected as the neutral venue and it remains to be seen how the absence of any home-field advantage affects the game.
