Red Bull Leipzig are relative newcomers to the Champions League in recent years, however they have already been able to establish themselves as a side that need to be watched closely when they do participate in Europe’s elite club competition. The side have continued to play some of the most exciting football on the continent, which has helped build their appeal in the game. Therefore, attending the 42,959 capacity Red Bull Arena is certainly a must when the tournament features on their schedule.
The club have had some of the most exciting talent in the past, with men like Timo Werner, Dayot Upamecano, Dani Olmo, Emil Forsberg and Tyler Adams, which has also helped them achieve the extraordinary levels of appeal they have managed to achieve over recent years.
As mentioned, RB Leipzig have only recently managed to create a history for themselves regarding involvement in the Champions League. Despite their relatively new stature, though, it can almost be guaranteed that they will continue to build upon it in the coming years.
As of the 2020/21 campaign, Die Roten Bullen had only managed to play in two editions of the tournament, with their first appearance in the 2017/18 campaign, whilst also participating in the 2019/20 competition.
Whilst there have only been a handful of appearances to date for RB Leipzig, there have still been some truly memorable moments the club can look upon fondly whilst they try and continue to establish themselves as regulars in future years.
The club may have not been able to progress from the Group Stages of the 2017/18 tournament, however they did manage to record impressive results against AS Monaco and FC Porto; two sides that are regular competitors.
RB Leipzig improved significantly a couple of years later after their first experience, as they managed to make a quarter-final appearance against Juventus, having overcome Tottenham Hotspur in the Round of 16 with consummate ease.
