Julian Nagelsmann’s men will be full of self-belief after knocking Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid out of the continental competition, courtesy of an 88th-minute winner from their American youngster, Tyler Adams, in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, PSG left it late to score a 93rd-minute winner in the first single-legged quarter-final fixture to book their spot in the last-four.

Neymar and company trailed the Italian side 1-0 heading into the final minutes, but Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting arrived late to secure their first-ever Champions League semi-final appearance in 25 years.

Paris Saint-Germain, on the other hand, are likely to be without their first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas (thigh) and key midfielder Marco Verratti (calf) for the mouthwatering encounter.

However, Argentine superstar Angel Di Maria will be available for selection after serving a suspension.

RB Leipzig vs PSG: Prediction

RB Leipzig have played some fearless football to stitch up a fairy tale story to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their short history.

But on Tuesday night, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will have their task cut out as they face one of Europe’s most potent attacking trios in the form of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Mauro Icardi.
