It was only 2013 when RB Leipzig began playing in Germany’s third division. Fast forward just seven years and the club found themselves playing in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Their brilliant run earned them a place amongst Europe’s elite, after being drawn to face French powerhouses, Paris Saint-Germain.
RasenBallsport Leipzig, the east German football club founded on May 19, 2009 in the small town of Markranstädt, are one game away from reaching the pinnacle of European football, the Champions League final. However, standing in their way is Paris Saint-Germain, one of the richest, most marketable, and biggest spenders in world football.
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.
Finally, it was time for the long-awaited Champions League restart. RB Leipzig, who beat José Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in the previous round, faced a very tough battle against Diego Simeone’s Atlético Madrid. Leipzig came into this game as slight underdogs.
