RB Leipzig are currently second in the Bundesliga table and will probe a tough match for Liverpool, but they will have to find another place for the firs leg and will lose the home advantage against the Premier League champions. It should make much difference anyways with the no fans at the games, just a bit more awkward for everyone involved, but the German government have tighted restrictions in Germany to help with the spread of Covid-19
Will this make a big difference for either side? Liverpool have an awful run of injuries as of late and have been hit or miss in the Premier League, the Champions League will be a major focus for the Liverpool squad now.
