Real Madrid swing by RB Leipzig on Tuesday for at first leg Champions League round of 16 qualifying match at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig.

RB Leipzig could present an argument of being a tad unlucky not to finish first, since they claimed 12 points during their group phase. However, they were stung by two disappointing defeats and now face a group winner like Real Madrid.

Real Madrid steamrolled through their group, winning every single of the six matches. As such, qualification to the next round was done and dusted fairly quick which didn't see them lower the tempo in a powerful display of ability.

RB Leipzig will be focusing on what brought on their four group wins when welcoming Real Madrid for the first leg. They need a strong showing and not a performance like the ones which resulted in two defeats in their group.

Real Madrid will be immensely disappointed should they fail to qualify even further in the tournament. Home side RB Leipzig currently don't look like a side which possess the kind of quality it requires to knock out a team like Real Madrid.

RB Leipzig put some impressive numbers on display from their past ten matches in this tournament, scoring 21 goals per game on average. This resulted in 21 goals in total, but they also conceded 20. That is an average of two per match, as they managed one clean sheet.

Real Madrid show off splendid stats in their last ten matches, where they hit the target 2.1 times on average per game in this tournament. They scored 21 goals and conceded 12, an average of 1.2 a game. They held on for a clean sheet in four of these.
