RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has a warning message to his players against complacency ahead of their Champions League clash against Manchester United on Wednesday.

The Bundesliga side travel to Old Trafford for their second group-phase match, with both United and Leipzig victorious on matchday one.

Despite our victory at Paris, the team is yet to hit top form, but Nagelsmann has warned against underestimating Manchester United.

“When I analyse an opponent I do not look at the results, I try to find out how they score goals, concede, build-up play, counter-attack, counter-press, other things,” he told the Daily Mail.

“So the result doesn’t count for much. In the end, I don’t think any of my players will say Manchester United is not that good.

“We know that their start was not that good but, in the end, it is one of the biggest clubs in the world, a big name in European football and the Champions League.”

The young German tactician is also looking forward to enjoying his Old Trafford experience.

He said: “I’ve never played in Old Trafford or been there. It will be a great experience.

“I watched a lot of games in the Theatre of Dreams and Manchester United on television. Now to be part of the stadium will be perfect.

“I know there will be no fans so that’s hard. When there will be fans it will be more of a bigger experience. But if we win the game in the Theatre of Dreams it will be perfect.”
