Jesse Marsch’s side are gearing up for the fourth Champions League campaign in the club’s history and make up part of a ‘group of death’ alongside Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Club Brugge in Group A.
RB Leipzig’s A List consists of 24 players, including two goalkeepers in Péter Gulácsi and Josep Martínez, as well as seven locally trained players.
UEFA defines a ‘locally-trained player’ as either ‘club-trained’ or ‘association trained’:
Club-trained players: players who were on a club's books for three years between the ages of 15 and 21.
Association-trained players: players who were on another club's books in the same association for three years between the ages of 15 and 21. No club can have more than four association-trained players among their eight 'local' nominees on List A.
The A List cannot be changed during the Group Stage.

2 – Mohamed Simakan
3 – Angeliño
4 – Willi Orban (Local Player)
8 – Amadou Haidara

Players born on or after 1st January 2000 and who have played for the club for two consecutive years between their 15th birthday and registration with UEFA may be placed on the B list. 16-year-olds must have spent the previous two seasons with the club.

Our record in the Champions League:

- 24 games

Champions League regulars:
Our number 1 between the posts and our new captain Péter Gulácsi has played all 24 of our games in the UCL. Behind him comes Emil Forsberg with 21 games for the Red Bulls.
Mr. Champions League:
Forsberg is also our top goalscorer in Europe’s elite competition with 7 goals and therefore earns the title of Mr. Champions-League!
Top assist provider:
Angelino has been our most dangerous player in the UCL, leading the team in terms of assists with 5.
Our total goal difference across our Champions league games stands at 37 for and 39 against, and we’ve never been involved in a goalless UCL fixture to date. From ten home games in the competition, we’ve only failed to score a goal on one occasion: a 2-0 loss to Olympique Lyon.
Reunion with PSG:
We’ve already come up against the side from the French capital three times and this season will see us do battle again for the fourth and fifth times. Our record against PSG so far stands at one win and two defeats.
