Fresh off the back of an emphatic 6-0 victory over Hertha Berlin, RB Leipzig welcome Club Brugge to Red Bull Arena in Group A of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

The visitors stunned Paris Saint-Germain by securing a 1-1 draw in their group opener last week and will be looking to build on that performance.

RB Leipzig returned to winning ways in style as they thrashed Hertha Berlin 6-0 in their Bundesliga encounter last time out.

Prior to that, Jesse Marsch’s men failed to taste victory in their previous four outings, picking up one draw and losing twice.

RB Leipzig will now return to the Champions League, where they suffered a thrilling 6-3 defeat at the hands of Manchester City in their group opener.

Meanwhile, Club Brugge put on a sensational performance in their Group A curtain-raiser as they held European powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain to a 1-1 draw.

Philippe Clement’s men head into Tuesday’s encounter off the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Belgian Pro League bottom-dweller Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

Club Brugge are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games across all competitions and will be looking to keep the ball rolling.
