Former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann has given his verdict on Group H’s big final game between RB Leipzig and Manchester United.
Group H still has a lot of drama to offer after United lost 3-1 to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week. On the same night Julian Nagelsmann’s men bagged a late winner against Istanbul Basaksehir.
Istanbul are completely out of the running but United, PSG and RB Leipzig all sit on nine-points going into the group’s final round of matches.
Didi Hamann can’t go very long without running his mouth, so he had to get his nose stuck in the middle of it before United travel to Leipzig. He described the Reds as ‘a moody diva’.
“In the first half, Leipzig dominated the opponent extremely and sometimes played against the wall,” Hamann wrote in his Sky Germany column. “Every attack is dangerous and you can see a very clear handwriting and philosophy.
“In a group with PSG and Manchester United on the final day of the game, everyone would have signed with RB a few months ago to have the chance to advance with a win against United. You can be proud of that alone.
“United is a moody diva with many strengthens but also weaknesses. I believe in RB. Nagelsmann and his team also have a really good chance in Munich.”
Manchester United already beat RB Leipzig in the group stages, with Marcus Rashford hat-trick contributing to a whopping 5-0 win. The Bundesliga side were in better form back then and have a tricky league fixture today away to Bayern Munich.
Nagelsmann will also be without star defender Dayot Upamecano for the clash against United due to suspension.
