More coverage via the Associated Press. With a draw, Madrid can still squeak through to the round of 16 if Shakhtar Donetsk loses at Inter Milan. Madrid has never failed to get past the group stage in its 25 previous campaigns.
Group B has proven to be the most competitive. Gladbach leads it with eight points. Madrid and Shakhtar each have seven, two more than last-place Inter.
All four can still advance, and all four can still miss out. When Gladbach hosted Madrid in October, the German club was leading until Karim Benema and Casemiro scored late to salvage a draw.
It was beaten twice by Shakhtar. Struggling in attack, Madrid has also had problems in defense, conceding nine goals in five group games, its worst defensive record up to this point in the competition.
A hamstring injury has sidelined defensive leader Sergio Ramos for the last two weeks. Madrid has underperformed for a squad of its caliber in the Spanish league as well.
It had gone three rounds without a win until it eked out a victory at Sevilla last Saturday thanks to a goalkeeping blunder.
Gladbach can go through with a draw. All three are tied on nine points. Such a stunning rise was never likely to go unnoticed in a country like Germany, where fans place great emphasis on history, tradition and fan culture.
Even the name of this upstart club stuck in the craw. Unlike in Austria and the United States, the use of corporation names in football teams is prohibited in Germany.
Borussia Dortmund fans hold up a series of banners in protest against the Red Bull-owned club. This was circumvented by making the official name 'RasenBallsport' - which literally means 'lawn ball sports' - Leipzig as opposed to Red Bull.
Liga Third tier - 2nd. Bundesliga Second tier - 5th. And they deliberately flouted German football's unique 'plus-one' ownership rules designed to keep power in the hands of supporters by issuing a limited number of shares, selling 49 per cent of them to Red Bull and then making the remainder prohibitively expensive.
Even now they have just 17 members with voting rights within the club and most of them have direct links to the Red Bull company.
Their rapid success and means of achieving it sparked a backlash from their rivals. Opposition fans have marched in protest and boycotted games, while some club's constitutions were amended to prohibit arranging friendlies against them.
But as time has progressed and Leipzig have become established as a top-flight club, the attitudes of some have softened. Firstly, it's clear that the club is a positive thing for the city of Leipzig with the people getting behind them and average crowds around the 40,mark.
Artificial construct or not, their success has restored Leipzig to the football map in Germany and Europe. Secondly, Leipzig haven't spent the crazy sums on players that many expected.
Indeed, there is a stark contrast between them and Champions League semi-final opponents PSG, flush with Qatari cash and not afraid to spend it. Like Salzburg, the emphasis has been on identifying bright young talent around the world, nurturing them and selling on at a healthy profit.
Alternatively, the likes of Timo Werner were signed from Stuttgart as they suffered relegation into the second tier in Thirdly, under their progressive young coach Nagelsmann, Leipzig have a reputation for playing football that is pleasing on the eye.
But to ignore this exciting team and coach Julian Nagelsmann is growing harder by the day. In the 11 years since their formation, RB Leipzig have risen from the fifth tier to the cusp of European glory.
RB Leipzig rose from the fifth tier to the cusp of European glory 11 years after their formation. For many, however, RB Leipzig jar with the essence of what football clubs are for.
Where is the fairytale, critics argue, in Red Bull - a billion-pound energy drinks corporation - infiltrating a proud football culture for a 'pure marketing project'?
There is certainly little romance in their roots. By mid, Red Bull had considered taking over clubs such as St Pauli and Fortuna Dusseldorf, only to face fierce fan opposition.
They bought the playing licence and dressed them in company colours. Straight away the venture hit traffic.
Opponents poured weed killer on their pitch, while the authorities would not allow Red Bull in the team name. The football has proved less of a headache.
Now, they are in the last four of the Champions League. And in keeping with this unconventional incarnation of modern football, Leipzig push new boundaries on the training ground.
Julian Nagelsmann pushes new boundaries on the training field using cutting edge technology. Which side have the most players? Which league has the most nominees?
