Nothing much for an update on Leipzig’s lineup, except for centre-back Ibrahima Konate who is recovering from hip surgery.

Kylian Mbappe played only 30 minutes last time against Atalanta due to his ankle sprain, but this time he’s likely to return with more minutes and at the starting XI.
Full-back Layvin Kurzawa is unlikely to enter the pitch due to a thigh issue, while midfielder Marco Verratti with a calf injury.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas had to be substituted during the latter stages of the quarter-final with a hamstring problem and is uncertain to play this upcoming fixture, as Sergio Rico potentially set to take his place.
Neymar and Mbappe would bring a huge test for Leipzig’s defense, as PSG’s display last time against Atalanta were far from their peak state.
With Leipzig being more prone to concede a goal than PSG, we’re positive that PSG will proceed to the finals.
