Liverpool Vs RB Leipzig LIVE Football Score 21 Jul 2022
PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
A pre-season heavyweight showdown takes place at the Red Bull Arena on Thursday evening, as RB Leipzig take on Liverpool in a friendly encounter.
Domenico Tedesco‘s side got the better of Southampton 3-1 last time out, while the Reds picked up their first win of pre-season against Crystal Palace.
The Domenico Tedesco 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 before the new campaign has even kicked off.
After scoring and setting up goals for fun last season, Christopher Nkunku was courted by several European clubs but ultimately elected to renew his contract with Leipzig, who have been rather quiet in terms of incomings so far.
Xaver Schlager represents the hosts’ marquee acquisition so far, joining from Wolfsburg for a €12m (£10.2m) fee, while Hwang Hee-chan and Tyler Adams have both left the club on permanent deals to head to the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United respectively.
Konrad Laimer and Brian Brobbey will seemingly be the next out of the door amid rumours of moves to Bayern Munich and Ajax respectively, but the duo were at least able to play a part in the recent friendly win over Southampton, where Tedesco’s men kicked off their summer in perfect fashion.
Angelino, Emil Forsberg and Ilaix Moriba were on target alongside an Adam Armstrong consolation in a 3-1 win for Die Roten Bullen, who conclude their pre-season preparations against Liverpool before taking part in the German Super Cup with Bayern Munich on July 30.
Mohamed Salah could be among those thrust back into the starting XI as Liverpool click into gear for the new season, with Adrian in between the sticks once 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
