The coronavirus-related travel restrictions preventing UK travelers from entering Germany mean the match is being played in a neutral venue; Puskas Square in Budapest.
Liverpool are hoping that a return to Europe – a competition which is certainly the only chance to win this season – will bring the season back to life after a series of three successive league defeats, the last of which saw Jürgen Klopp concede the Premier League title on Saturday.
However, it will not be an easy task. Leipzig has a great season, is second behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, and has emerged from a tough squad that includes Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 pm on February 16, 2021.
The game will be played behind closed doors at a neutral venue, Puskas Arena in Budapest, due to the current coronavirus restrictions.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool predicted: 2–1 home win
Liverpool appear confident at the moment and Leipzig are in good shape, despite their lack of a ground advantage due to these Covid restrictions. The Germans could see them out with a narrow win, but a 2-1 loss would keep Liverpool in good shape in the rematch at Anfield.
