On Tuesday, RB Leipzig faces a difficult hurdle in the Champions League.
But opponents Paris seem weakened in the attack: At least two stars are not ready for action.
Leipzig - With zero points after two games, RB Leipzig is at the bottom of the table in Champions League Group A. On the third day of the game there is a difficult hurdle - the away game with the star troupe from Paris St. Germain.

Also in defense, Paris St. Germain have to do without a support against RB Leipzig: The Spanish central defender Sergio Ramos is out.
“The player's health comes first.
It's just a minor problem and it will hopefully be resolved in a few days, ”coach Mauricio Pochettino said at a press conference about Neymar's injury.
Whether PSG can be called "weakened" because of this in the CL match (all news about the premier class) appears to be questionable: In the attack, the coach can still rely on Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.
“We are very satisfied with the integration of Leo Messi.
He feels better and better, ”said ex-Tottenham coach Pochettino.
