The match will be played at the Red Bull Arena and the hosts are currently second in Group F on 6 points while the visitors are top on 10 points.

RB Leipzig come into the match on the back of an entertaining 3-3 draw at Augsburg in the Bundesliga on the weekend.

That result means RB Leipzig are undefeated in their last 7 games in all competitions. They have won 5 of those 7 fixtures including two wins over Celtic in the Champions League.
