A win would guarantee safe passage to the knockout rounds in this year's UEFA Champions League for both sides as RB Leipzig host Manchester United. Don't miss a moment with our RB Leipzig vs Manchester United live stream guide.

In Group H, three sides sit level on nine points with an opportunity to escape the group depending on tonight's results, though only two will make it. RB Leipzig face-off against fellow hopefuls Manchester United with last year's finalists Paris Saint-Germain hoping to secure their knockout spot against Istanbul Başakşehir who will finish bottom of the group regardless of the various possible permutations.

Manchester United only need to avoid defeat in this game against Leipzig to go through and will finish in top spot if they do so and Paris do not beat Başakşehir.

Leipzig will be guaranteed a spot in the next round if they beat United today, or if they draw the game and Paris suffer defeat against the Istanbul side. If the Red Bulls win and Paris do not, they will top the group.

In their last meeting, Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men trounced the German side 5-0 in a game that saw Marcus Rashford bag a hat-trick of goals.

Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping his team avoids such a drubbing in tonight's game. Leipzig will likely be buoyed by a 3-3 draw against Bundesliga titleholders at the weekend as well as their lofty third-place league position.

For Man United, the form has also been good in the Premier League with four wins in their last five games in the league which will likely fill the team with confidence as they travel to the Red Bull Arena.
