The widely renowned Theatre of Dreams awaits Julian Nagelsmann and RB Leipzig as England’s most successful football club, Manchester United, face east German opposition for the first time since 1965 on Wednesday.
Last season’s European adventure took an 11-year-old RB Leipzig to the dizzying heights of a Champions League semi-final. Now back down to earth and into a new season, Die Roten Bullen begin the club’s third Champions League campaign with a home tie against 2019/20 Süper Lig champions, İstanbul Başakşehir, in front of just 999 spectators.
For the second time in the UEFA Youth League’s short-term existence, Red Bull Salzburg are within touching distance of claiming the ultimate prize in Nyon. Following a nerve-wracking performance against Olympique Lyon in the quarter-finals, Bo Svensson and Matthias Jaissle’s side must overcome Real Madrid to reach the final.
RB Leipzig are one step closer to what was seemingly the unthinkable at the start of the season: reaching the Champions League final. Following a night to remember against Atlético Madrid last Thursday, Julian Nagelsmann’s team will face back-to-back-to-back Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain, in the semi-finals.
