Tue 08 December 2020 | 7:37

With Paris Saint-German, Leipzig and the Red Devils all level on nine points, there will be a lot of tensions for qualification from Group H on Tuesday.

Manchester City

Graduate,

Angelino

, is ready to seal

Leipzig’s

qualification with a victory against

Manchester United

, avenging their 5-0 away defeat at Old Trafford, Leipzig’s heaviest-ever European defeat.

“It was a tough one to take,”

the 23-year-old

Spaniard

said.

“I think any team that beats you by five goals it’s hard to accept, even more when obviously I was at City.

“It was big, big massive game in Manchester and it hurts even more but it’s a final for us tomorrow.

“We have to be very focused and be as fresh as possible and hopefully turn everything around so we can forget the last game.”

On loan from Citizens, Angelino were asked if the defeating his original side’s arch-rivals be more special for him:

“Of course it’s a special game and a special chance but, yeah, we have to do everything that we can to get a good result tomorrow.

“As I said, it’s a final. It’s either you’re in or you’re out, so we have to do everything.

“We have to be very focused and hopefully do everything right and so it can be a good night.”

The Spaniard has established himself as one of

Bundesliga’s

best left-backs since he arrived in September from City a season-long with an option to buy.

“I love it,”

the Leipzig full-back said.

“I love playing football and here they gave me the chance to do it and to express myself every weekend so I’m happy.

“That’s why I came here. I wanted to play and they give me minutes, so I’m very happy.”

Leipzig will be without

Konrad Laimer

,

Lukas Klostermann

and

Benjamin Henrichs

through injury on Tuesday, while

Lazar Samardzic

has tested positive for Covid-19.

Hwang Hee-chan

is also unavailable as he recovers from coronavirus and

Dayot Upamecano

is suspended for the Group H finale.
