RB Leipzig Midfielder Discusses What He Expects From PSG Ahead of Semi-Finals Matchup

The clash between Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig is two days away, with the winner clinching their ticket to the UEFA Champions League final.

Marcel Sabitzer spoke with RTL.de even though manager Julian Nagelsmann gave his squad the day off on Saturday. The 26-year-old discussed PSG with the German media outlet. 

One of the first points that Sabitzer touched on was the talent that Les Parisiens will bring to their semi-final matchup. 

However, despite the capital club being the more talented team, the Austria international believes that if Leipzig performs as they did against Atlético Madrid, they can win over the Ligue 1 champions. Another topic that Sabitzer talked about was PSG’s manager Thomas Tuchel. 

“PSG are tough opponents with really good players in the ranks. They have come together as a collective and have a coach at their side who is also crazy about details,” Sabitzer said.

Against Atlético, Sabitzer had 71 touches, recorded an assist, and had 53 accurate passes with a 91.4 percent success rate while playing 89 minutes. Although the numbers are impressive, the midfielder did go two for six with their ground duels. 

We will see how big of a factor Sabitzer plays on Tuesday against PSG.
